"Selecting, developing and retaining the best talent is critical for all industries and organizations these days, especially within the healthcare sector. The U.S. population is aging rapidly, the Affordable Care Act has brought millions of new patients into the system, and there is a significant shortage in qualified professionals and skillsets to meet their needs," says Prendergast.

Prendergast also directed its efforts to align patient, physician and employee surveys and implemented an action planning process which positively impacted Jackson Health System's employee engagement results and value-based purchasing.

"Anne has an innate ability to diagnose organizational issues, align people and processes and create solutions that drive performance and results for a company and its employees," says Niko Drakoulis, Founder and CEO of SurePeople. "Her leadership experience and insights into the healthcare arena have already been instrumental in forming new relationships in the industry, as well as cultivating sound approaches for our customers to reach all of their employees with the right learning and development opportunities."
