Gallagher Associates, LLC

Loretta Gallagher began forming the idea for Gallagher Associates in the 90s. While trying to raise a daughter, she became pregnant with her second child. At the time, she felt it was appropriate to take a few years off and focus on building a relationship with her family. However, while she loved being a mother, she missed the responsibilities and challenges of a working adult. By September 1993, she began forming ideas for Gallagher Associates.

She began with her first client, which was located nearby. It was a local state college that employed her company. Their goal was to have Gallagher Associates help them with an overflow of corporations calling their non-credit professional development office for help with the emerging computers and software. For Loretta, it was the perfect opportunity to kick-start her company. By the time her kids entered high school, the company grew tremendously and they had associates as well as clients in many states.

Today, with a proven track record in the health care industry, Gallagher Associates provides implementation, project management, design, budgeting, planning, cutover/command leadership, training & go-live leadership. On the other hand, it’s founder, Loretta Gallagher has a wide range of professional experiences working on teams implementing Epic, Cerner Millennium, Soarian, and McKesson encompassing inpatient, Revenue Cycle, and Ambulatory.
