Focus on Health Systems, Institutions, and Practices

BMC’s expertise is broad. We have served the conflict prevention and resolution needs of all major segments of the American economy. It is also focused and deep. BMC’s roster of principals and associates brings specialized experience and knowledge to many specific economic sectors. In particular, in over more than two decades of service, BMC has brought exceptional resources to its Focus on Health Systems, Institutions, and Practices.


BMC Associates has extensive expertise and experience working in medical and dental practices, hospitals, and healthcare systems helping to optimize working relationships among medical professionals and resolve conflicts that have arisen between individuals, among departments, and within the ranks of senior leadership.

Our understanding of the unique context and needs of the medical sector was significantly strengthened when Donna Hart Gage, Ph.D., R.N., joined BMC as a Principal in 2012. Dr. Gage is nationally recognized as an innovator in nursing management and leadership and medical information systems. She has previously served as Chief Nursing Officer at MedStar Georgetown Hospital and Penn State Hershey Medical Center. (Since June 30, 2014, Dr. Gage has been on extended leave from her BMC position while she serves as Chief Nursing Officer for the U.S. Veterans Health Administration.)

Among the services BMC provides in the medical field are:

  • Mediation and consultation to prevent and resolve conflicts in all types and sizes of healthcare systems and practices — including inter-departmental and (non-contractual) labor-management issues.
  • Strengthening of partnership governance and partner selection processes for medical and dental practices.
  • Enhancement of medical staff performance including support for Magnet hospital certification.
