Sullivan Cotter

Sullivan Cotter Holdings, Inc., the nation’s leading human capital information management holding company for health care and not-for-profit/tax-exempt organizations, has acquired Chicago-based Lotis Blue Consulting.

Formed in 2005, Lotis Blue (previously Axiom Consulting Partners) works with organizations in multiple industries to develop solutions to the most complex and difficult problems related to organization, teams, workforce, and leadership. Having served more than 450 clients since its founding, Lotis Blue has built a reputation for delivering business impact through strategy-led organization design, talent management, and improving the performance of executive teams and leaders. The firm’s robust and proprietary approach to combining data and behavioral science to elevate workforce, leadership, and organizational performance in service of strategy execution is uniquely positioned in the market and credited with realizing sustained client results. In 2024, Forbes recognized the firm as one of America’s best management consulting firms.

Lotis Blue will continue to serve clients across all industries as it expands more deeply into the health care industry. Existing and prospective health care and not-for-profit/tax-exempt clients of Lotis Blue and the individual brands within Sullivan Cotter Holdings –SullivanCotter, Clinician Nexus and C3 Nonprofit Consulting Group – will specifically benefit from expanded services and related offerings.

“When we offer Lotis Blue services in conjunction with our portfolio of companies, we create synergistic services for health care and other not-for-profits that support business transformation at all levels,” said Ted Chien, President and CEO of Sullivan Cotter Holdings, Inc. “Health care is in a transformative period that requires careful consideration of structure with the ability to execute real organizational change. This acquisition allows us to leverage talent and experience within the general industry that can be critical to transforming health care.”

Health care organizations face labor shortages, market consolidation, and increased patient demands for a more integrated, value-based care experience. As a result, they are under pressure to reimagine operational models and structure – addressing everything from talent recruiting and retention to workforce development to incentives, rewards, and compensation. More so, they seek individualized data and analytics to guide potential business shifts that will drive positive change across labor, revenue, efficiency, and patient experience.

“Sullivan Cotter Holdings has an incredibly deep bench of knowledge within its brands,” said Garrett Sheridan, CEO of Lotis Blue. “We see this as an opportunity to expand our services to create a holistic, multi-disciplinary resource for organizations looking to strategically transform how they compete and serve their highly purpose-driven stakeholders in today’s ever-changing market.”
