Healthcare systems across the world are under pressure. For many developed countries, they are wrestling with the same, complex challenges – aging populations, fiscal pressures and increasing patient expectations. At the same, the world‘s high growth developing economies are exploring ways to organize and finance new systems, and build new infrastructure to meet the rising expectations of newly empowered consumers. With payers, providers and governments being squeezed like never before, it is no exaggeration to talk of seismic shifts over the next ten years.
Across its global network of 150 countries, KPMG already has more than 2900 professionals dedicated to healthcare but we are looking for more. We want bright and ambitious people who can use their skills in strategy development, cost optimization, financial management, clinical performance improvement, market development, tax planning, mergers and acquisitions, commercialization and organizational development.
We are attracting some of the very best people directly from the healthcare sector to join us at KPMG. Most recently, we saw the recruitment of Janet Davidson, O.C., MHSA, LLD as the Canadian Executive of the Global Healthcare Centre of Excellence. Janet is an internationally recognized leader in hospital administration and was voted one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in both 2009 and 2010. At KPMG, she will provide senior executive leadership in the areas of health system design, patient experience, system integration, healthcare policy as well as mergers and acquisitions. Janet joins a growing international team of renowned experts such as Professor Marc Berg of KPMG in the Netherlands, Doctor Wai Chiong Loke of KPMG in Singapore, Sue Williams of KPMG in Australia, Professor Hilary Thomas, KPMG in the UK, and Per Bleikelia KPMG in Norway.
