Laura Smith, VP & CIO
Unity Point Health
Huntzinger really partnered well with our team to push us where we needed a push. It was refreshing to work with a partner that was direct, honest and truthful about our condition (to include the recommendations for remediation), rather than tell us what we want to hear to secure the next contract. We rely on the hard truth to make things better.
Scott Arnold, Senior VP & CIO
Tampa General Hospital
Huntzinger's findings were extremely well documented. They gave us an IT roadmap of areas we need to currently address as we prepare for system selection and implementation.
Jim Cole, President and CEO
Virginia Hospital Center
Working with Huntzinger was seamless and they were very responsive and knowledgeable. We tended to forget that they weren't employees by the end of their work. They embedded themselves with our culture quite well.

Central Maine Healthcare
We have used Huntzinger for several project implementations. They were always quick to adapt to our ever-changing environment, driving our projects to successful completions.
Jeff Futterman, CIO
Huntzinger's role in our big-bang implementation was central to our success. We benefited from the best practices established through their experience working with many other healthcare systems. And when a problem came up, Huntzinger would let us know if it was expected — or if it was an unexpected issue that we should hold the vendor accountable to correct.
Denis Tanquay, CIO
