His strong belief in developing and improving upon strategic partnerships in place of traditional client-vendor relationships serves as a foundation for his contribution to CHIME.
“I believe in the value of CHIME as a robust platform where we all – healthcare advisors, partners, providers, leaders, and others – can gather to talk, share our problems, our ideas, our advice, our feedback – and ultimately develop solutions together that make our nation’s healthcare better,” said Steve.
Steve has more than 20 years of extensive senior and executive-level leadership experience in professional services delivery and sales management in healthcare including multifaceted provider healthcare environments, academic medical centers, multi-facility/multi-regional Integrated Delivery Networks (IDN), large for-profit hospital organizations, and regional medical centers.

At Divurgent, Steve is responsible for directing all of Divurgent’s operations including delivery, practices, marketing, recruiting, client services, and team (human) resources.
