Julia brings a wealth of experience from her past in healthcare with Deloitte Consulting, and we have come to know her well through mutual clients and previous engagements. We have always been impressed with her vision, preparation, and professionalism." Beninato went on to say, "Julia will work to promote LMS as a stand-alone business, as well as an integral part of our Hospital Revenue Cycle Solution."
Julia comes to SSC from Deloitte Consulting where she served as a Senior Manager in the Strategy and Operations practice. During her 12 years at Deloitte, Julia spent the majority of her time working with large medical groups and Integrated Delivery Networks to improve their revenue cycle practices and general operations. Prior to Deloitte, Julia worked in marketing and operations in the long-term care business with several Ohio companies such as Health Care Management Group, Integrated Health Services, Arbor Health Care, and Health Care and Retirement Corporation.
