We help you develop and implement strategies that influence the
5 key pillars of your organization.

LHA Philosophy

Kelly Lorah has spent the last 20 years deeply embedded in the healthcare system as a consultant, CEO, COO, and administrator, with a focus on Strategic Development and Implementation.

Having experienced so many different angles of the healthcare industry, she has a perspective that goes beyond strategy & policy and emphasizes sustainable implementation.  Whereas, most consultants consider their work done when they submit a report, the LHA team hones in on seeing the strategy work from every level of employee in the organization.  This makes LHA more accountable, invested, and impactful than most consultants.
