Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business
consulting services, today announced that Andrew A. Ziskind, M.D., managing
director and Clinical solutions leader in its Huron Healthcare practice, has
been recognized as one of the Top 25 Consultants for 2013 by Consulting
magazine.

“I am proud, but not surprised, that Andy has been recognized as a top
consultant by this prestigious industry ranking,” said Gordon Mountford,
executive vice president, Huron Healthcare. “Andy delivers innovative clinical
solutions to hospitals across the country – fundamentally redesigning, for the
better, the way patient care is delivered.”

Dr. Ziskind leads Huron Healthcare’s Clinical solutions group, which drives
sustainable improvements in care quality, patient satisfaction, and financial
performance. He has helped hospitals, healthcare systems, and academic medical
centers across the country enhance operational efficiency and reduce care
variation, which has resulted in dramatic improvements in cost, quality and
satisfaction for Huron’s clients.

Prior to joining Huron Healthcare in 2012, Dr. Ziskind was a senior executive
in Accenture’s Health & Public Service operating group, where he provided
leadership for the Accountable Care Organization and Academic Health System
practices. His clinical leadership experience includes serving as vice dean
for clinical affairs and associate vice president at the University of
Washington, and president of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Dr. Ziskind graduated at
the top of his class from the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of
Medicine and trained in internal medicine and cardiology at Massachusetts
General Hospital.

“The best part of my job is literally seeing patients receive better quality
care, which makes a real difference in their lives,” said Dr. Ziskind. “I’m
truly honored to receive this award, but it really belongs to our team at
Huron Healthcare and to our collaborating partners at the hospitals we work
with.”

Consulting magazine, the flagship publication of the consulting profession,
features the latest information on consulting careers, thought leadership, and
corporate strategies. The Top 25 Consultants for 2013 were selected by
