About The Leifer Group

The Leifer Group provides an array of strategic services designed to enhance the viability, profitability, and effectiveness of organizations within the healthcare industry. Originally known as “John Leifer Ltd.,” the firm was founded 1982.

Over the past 30 years, The Leifer Group has had the privilege of working with hundreds of healthcare organizations in virtually every state. Though the majority of clients have been hospitals and health systems, we’ve also worked with the diverse stakeholders within the industry, including healthcare IT companies, healthcare associations, pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies, major physician groups, state and federal governments, and consulting firms.

The Leifer Group is known for constructing comprehensive, data-driven situational analyses that provide a rock-solid foundation for its clients’ planning initiatives as well as bringing truly inspirational strategies to contemplation.

The Leifer Group Services

The Leifer Group provides strategic planning and strategic marketing consulting services to virtually every segment of the healthcare industry with a particular emphasis on developing measurable growth strategies for health systems and their aligned hospitals.

The Leifer Group Mission

We strive to be a catalyst for positive change in the healthcare industry.

Our clients deserve evidence-based counsel and recommendations that are supported by impeccable data and logic. Along with that, we provide thinking that transcends traditional solutions to address the complex challenges confronting healthcare organizations. The Leifer Group delivers data-driven, market-supported strategies that produce the measurable outcomes our clients expect.

We don’t tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear to achieve your goals and objectives. We do it in a highly collaborative manner rather than giving you just one prescriptive. We listen carefully to our clients’ opinions and considerations and engage them throughout the process.
