What if

you could successfully partner with a visionary healthcare administration leader to transform your future?


Healthcare with a Heart!

Hello, I’m Ann M. Richardson, MBA, founder of LeadWell Healthcare Consultants. Healthcare Systems Transformation & Operations Consultant and Fierce Patient Advocate. 

“Often referred to as the Doctor Whisperer, Ann is a clinically savvy, trusted partner committed to exceeding expectations while keeping physicians, care teams, and patients’ interests at the center of decision-making.”

25+ Years of Healthcare Administration

I am an innovative, creative thinker who leverages a consultative approach drawing on 25+ years of healthcare administration. My passion is leading multi-disciplinary teams to strategize processes for access to safe, timely, and high-quality care. Along with key stakeholders, I assess and evaluate technology to enhance and support clinical and administrative performance.

Change Management

As a change management facilitator, coach, builder, and promoter of clinical programs, I create infrastructure, define roles, and recruit top-performing teams that uphold high standards of integrity and patient advocacy.

Collaborative Relationship Builder

Collaborative relationship-builder and decisive partner. Giving voice to difficult ideas, finding consensus, and bringing stakeholders together in delivering value to patients and the care team, with the utmost integrity and commitment to service.

Physician & Care Team Advocacy

I am a believer in physician and care team advocacy to successfully implement patient-centric advocacy models of care. I use a “big eyes and big ears” approach to uncover countless opportunities for improvement and engagement. Utilizing a “pull method,” bottoms-up systems-based approach where the voice of frontline workers directs and implements necessary changes.
