Nikki Deklotz Joins Evergreen Healthcare Partners
Evergreen is pleased to share that Nikki Deklotz recently joined the Evergreen home office team as a Director of Consultant Engagement. In her role as a Director of Consultant Engagement, Nikki will support Evergreen Consultant Partners by providing continuous feedback, encouragement, and proactive communication.
Nikki is a Wisconsin native who got her undergraduate degree in Healthcare Administration from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee before heading to University of Iowa where she obtained her Masters in Healthcare Management and Policy. She began her healthcare career in 2009 at Northwestern Medicine where she served in a variety of positions. In her 9 years with Northwestern, she had the opportunity to manage a group of hospitalists before transitioning to a role as the Director of Patient Engagement. It was in that role that she developed a heart for the patient experience. Nikki collaborated with colleagues at Northwestern during some critical events—hospital mergers, system integration, and the construction of a replacement hospital. During that time, she and her team were intentional about using these transformational events to enhance patient engagement.
As Nikki transitions to the Evergreen Engagement team, she is eager to dedicate her time and passions to the consultant experience. “My goal has always been to reduce anxiety and create trust for each and every patient throughout their healthcare journey,” says Deklotz. “As a Director of Consultant Engagement, I will have the pleasure of cultivating trust with our consultants throughout their journey as a partner of Evergreen.”
“In striving to be a healthcare consulting firm that can be relied upon to provide our Client Partners with high quality talent and exceptional communication across the spectrum of operational, technical, and revenue cycle needs, we are grateful Nikki chose to share her healthcare experiences and talents with our team,” says Fieber, SVP of Talent Engagement. “She has a sincere desire to listen and understand consultants’ unique strengths and goals and match that with our Client Partners needs. She takes time to invest in getting to know what drives each person, and we believe that leads to the most successful partnerships.”
Outside of work, Nikki and her husband Richard enjoy spending time with their three young children and their newest addition – a boxer puppy named Roscoe. They currently reside in the Lake Country area where they enjoy spending time outside all year round
