Management consulting firm Kurt Salmon is pleased to announce that Craig Acosta has been promoted to a senior partner in the firm’s Health Care Group.

Mr. Acosta has nearly 25 years of experience advising the nation’s leading hospitals and health systems on their major capital investment decisions.

He has planned over $15 billion of hospital construction, including groundbreaking projects for many of the most prestigious health care organizations in the country, from UCSF to Cedars Sinai, Stanford to the University of Texas.

“Capital has never been tighter in health care, so it’s more important than ever before to ensure that every dollar invested in facilities is spent wisely,” Mr. Acosta said. “As a senior partner, I look forward to continuing to help my clients develop leading-edge facilities that help position them for success in a changing care environment.”

Relying on his deep health care facilities expertise, Mr. Acosta has developed several innovative approaches to meeting the strategic and operational needs of modern health care delivery, including the interventional platform, acuity adaptable patient rooms and modular ambulatory clinics.
