Mickey has 20 years of healthcare facilities management, consulting, and project management experience. Mickey was the senior operational leader for facility management operations of a large national nonprofit healthcare organization. Mickey led the creation and integration of a $1 billion-dollar facilities management portfolio (Plant Operations, Planning Design and Construction Services, Energy Management, Safety and Environment of Care). The organization started with four FTEs and within 2.5 years grew to over 3000 FTE. His teams removed millions of dollars of waste from the operations of the healthcare systems by employing a unique strategy based on insourcing high margin activities, implementing value chain strategies and creating cost control structures. He created intern, development and mentoring programs to bring new leaders into an industry that has a rapidly increasing retirement cycle.
Mickey has created energy management programs for hospitals of all sizes. The program focuses on consumption reduction strategies and delivering continuous improvement strategies to reduce overall utility spend and impact on the environment.
In addition to Facilities Management services, Mickey has extensive experience leading support service operations including Medical Equipment, Nutrition Services, Environmental Services, Safety, Emergency Management and Security operations. This model provides an immediate advantage to medium and small hospitals by using cross-functional leadership strategies to remove cost and improve quality of services.
