Helps healthcare leaders tackle complex challenges, including turning around underperforming assets, improving operations, and integrating new cutting-edge technology

About Bede

After pursuing training in both medicine and neuroscience, Bede joined McKinsey to help drive change across the healthcare sector. He helps healthcare-related organizations—mainly providers and service companies—provide better patient care while improving operations.

Taking a broad view of the factors that influence performance, he helps healthcare leaders tackle a range of complex challenges, including improving clinical operations, restructuring struggling hospitals, optimizing healthcare information-technology solutions, and integrating new cutting-edge technology. His firsthand knowledge of the healthcare system helps him address many factors that are critical to the long-term success of transformation efforts; namely, organizational culture and the complex workflows that exist in healthcare today.

Examples of his recent client work include the following:

  • designing and leading numerous comprehensive operational transformation programs to address profitability at multiple regional and national health systems
  • evaluating prospective acquisitions and turning around the performance of portfolios for private-equity clients
  • working with leading health systems to integrate cutting-edge technologies that have transformed clinical and nonclinical operations

Bede is a frequent speaker at industry and company events on healthcare-related turnarounds and restructurings, the future of clinical operations, the healthcare supply chain, and the integration of technology into the evolving healthcare landscape.
