Our Team

Principal Staff

MacLeod Associates has provided Productivity Improvement and Performance Consulting in the Healthcare Field for the past 50 years.

As a Vice President of Nursing at a Maryland hospital, I worked with MacLeod Associates for almost fifteen years. I appreciated the attention to detail and accuracy in their reports. I was especially pleased with the ongoing education that their consulting staff provided to my Directors and Managers. Our business relationship of consulting and education contributed to the success of the organization.
