Accounting and advisory group BKD has announced the acquisition of Chicago-based supply chain consulting firm Strategic Sourcing Results (SSR), for an undisclosed sum.
Effective April 16, 2021 the healthcare supply chain advisory specialist joined BKDS’s health care performance advisory services (HCPAS) arm.
The HCPAS team comprises over 500 professionals working to identify and implement revenue-generating and cost-saving opportunities for health care providers.
Steve LaFrance, HCPAS leader and partner at BKD, said: “With the addition of SSR to our firm, we’re able to expand our service capabilities related to supply chain, turnaround and margin improvement.”
He added that he had been “immediately impressed” by the firm’s “culture, team quality, and proven results”.
Peter Stille, president and CEO at SSR, said: “BKD has a great reputation in the healthcare industry. I have admired BKD’s culture and thought leadership for several years.
“Our passion to help our clients improve performance will separate us from other firms, especially as it pertains to margin improvement.”
