I have worked with the Charles Franc & Associates team on and off for the past 20 years, and every engagement took our community hospital Heart & Vascular Center to a higher level of program and clinical development. CFA provided strategic and operational expertise for several aspects of our program, including coronary intervention planning and implementation, COPN justification, cardiothoracic surgery planning and implementation and structural heart/TAVR feasibility and financial pro-forma. Their approach has always focused on the individual needs and circumstances of the organization, medical staff and local market dynamics, versus a "one fix" solution proposed by many other national cardiovascular consultants. Their involvement was absolutely instrumental in developing an extremely competitive heart program that provides the type of comprehensive care our community needs and deserves. I would highly recommend Charles Franc & Associates without hesitation.

Having worked with many types of healthcare consulting companies over my 25 years as a CT surgeon, I can say unequivocally I found Charles Franc and Associates to be the most professional, competent and experienced firm I have ever dealt with. They helped restructure our medical group practice and negotiate key hospital agreements that added significant value - strategically, operationally and financially.”

I have known Charles and the Charles Franc & Associates team for more than 16 years and have worked with them at two healthcare organizations in that time. CFA provided superior cardiovascular consulting services to these two very different organizations with very different cardiovascular consulting support needs. One organization was a multihospital health system looking to reposition itself successfully in its regional cardiovascular market. The second, a single hospital expanding its cardiovascular services clinical offering in an area with a broad range of existing competitors. Although the challenges of each of these engagements varied substantially, the CFA team delivered excellent outcomes and solid project documentation and results at all levels.
The team at CFA stay with their clients long past the "official engagement" and have made themselves available for on the spot advice and consultations. I can honestly say that CFA also helps to expand your own personal cardiovascular knowledge. This is all part of their way of doing business for their clients providing additional information that goes far beyond the initial scope of work or data presented in the professional services rendered to their clients. Having the ability to obtain this value added service is one of the very best things about CFA and why I look forward to the opportunity to continue to work with them!
