McBee Looks Internally for New President
McBee Associates has a new—but familiar—incoming president to help guide the health care services and consulting firm as it adapts to a shifting value-driven landscape and new payment models for post-acute spaces.
Executive Vice President Mike Dordick has been promoted to president of the Wayne, Pennsylvania-based McBee, the firm announced last week.
McBee Associates and its roughly 400 employees offer financial, operational and clinical consulting services to health care providers across the continuum of care. The firm has helped resolve challenges for more than 3,800 acute and post-acute providers since launching more than 40 years ago.
Most recently, Dordick led McBee’s post-acute division focused on home health, hospice and skilled nursing providers. As a result of the promotion, his duties will also be expanded to overseeing day-to-day operations as well.
“A lot of our priorities will be trying to help the McBee client base really work more effectively within the regulatory changes, such as the PDGM model coming into place,” Dordick told Home Health Care News. “The direction I see in my role as president, it’s really going to be about making sure I’m aligning all of these different efforts and resources along a path to positively impacting the providers that are our clients.”
Dordick will continue to report to McBee CEO Marty Brutscher, who is looking to begin phasing down his day-to-day responsibilities. The consulting firm and its private equity partner—Boston-based Century Private Equity Partners—view the promotion as a seamless next step in leadership.
“With that happening, it made a lot of sense for me to take over the rest of the operation and align everybody in the same direction,” Dordick, who first joined McBee as a staff consultant right out of college, said. “It was the next natural transition.”
Services geared toward post-acute space comprise McBee’s biggest piece of business.
In addition to his roles at McBee, Dordick is currently a member of the Corporate Leadership Council for the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare. He is also an advisory board member of the Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association, an affiliate of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice.
