Evergreen Hires Kate Hagerty as Consultant Engagement Director
Evergreen welcomes Kate Hagerty as a Director of Consultant Engagement. In this role, Kate will use her project management experience and knowledge of global healthcare to partner with project/program managers, directors, and international consultants to continue to expand the Evergreen Community.
Kate earned a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina and launched her career in healthcare as a member of the Patient Access implementation team at Epic. Kate began her Epic journey in 2011 as an Application Coordinator on the Grand Central team and eventually became an Implementation Director and BFF for a variety of Epic clients. During Kate’s nearly 6 years at Epic, she had the opportunity to work with organizations across the US and Canada. This gave Kate a taste of working with health systems outside of the United States and eventually led to her international journey.
After leaving Epic in 2016 and taking a couple year break from the road, Kate moved to Brussels, Belgium in 2018 to join the management team at Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc. It was there that Kate served as the clinical program manager for the Epic implementation. During her almost 3-year journey at Saint-Luc, she led a large analyst team through the difficulties of an enterprise Epic implementation, all with the added-complexity of global pandemic. Fortunately, the go-live was a great success despite the complexities faced along the way.
Now, Kate has returned to the United States and is thrilled to be sharing her passions with Evergreen Consultant Partners both nationally and internationally. Of the many roles Kate has held through the years, she most enjoys being a coach for others. “The greatest challenges and rewards come from working with people who are different than yourself. If you can really take the time to understand someone, you will realize how much you don’t know about the world,” shares Hagerty. “I’m looking forward to learning from the Evergreen team and working closely with our consultant partners.”
“The Evergreen Community is fortunate to have Kate as a mentor, ambassador, and leader of our Consultant Partners. In just a short conversation with Kate, you know that she cares deeply about cultivating relationships, offering solutions, and collaborating to achieve collective success,” says Fieber, SVP of Talent Engagement. “Kate is an absolutely perfect fit for our team and for our partners. We are grateful Kate chose to share her talents, passions, and expertise with the Evergreen team.”
Kate currently lives in the Madison area with her family and her elderly chihuahua. She enjoys golfing, playing the piano, and working in the garden in her spare time.
