Merger of Romans Group and MFR

MFR`s executive team announced the merger of the Romans Group with MFR and the formation of MFR Healthcare Solutions, Inc., which was effective August 1, 2012. The new practice group will focus on bringing operational excellence, enhanced patient experience, and increased quality standards to the global healthcare marketplace.

Following the tenet of "Shaping the Future of Healthcare in Your Part of the World," the team will provide strategic, tactical, and operational planning to hospitals, universities, medical institutions, and other healthcare providers. Highly tailored consulting services offered include assessment and evaluation, IT/infrastructure, quality/process improvement, strategic planning and development, operations, change management, financial modeling, regulatory compliance/monitoring, and mergers and acquisitions.
 
Juanita Romans, founder of Romans Group, will head MFR Healthcare Solutions' practice as managing principal, drawing from her three decades of experience serving in senior leadership positions for several of the country's premiere hospitals, including serving as CEO of Memorial Hermann Hospital - Medical Center in Houston, Texas. Under her direction, Romans saw the expansion and growth of the Memorial Hermann Central Market, Texas Medical Center campus, and the Memorial Hermann Northeast and Southeast campuses.
 
"I understand the myriad challenges that face healthcare institutions today," says Romans. "My goal is for hospitals and other medical providers to realize they can achieve operational excellence on sound financial footing and deliver quality patient care without compromise."
 
Experienced healthcare professionals Dale Dodds and Dawn Lawrence will also join MFR Healthcare Solutions, Inc. as directors. 
 
"The international focus of MFR Healthcare Solutions parallels recent initiatives with both MFR and MFR Solutions, Inc. to meet a growing demand for professional services to be delivered on an international level," said Roland Rodriguez, CPA, managing principal and cofounder of MFR. "The recognized MFR brand will continue to be reinforced through MFR Healthcare Solutions."
