The Skillman Corporation is pleased to announce a partnership with Carmichael & Company, an Indianapolis-based health strategy firm recently founded by Julie Carmichael. Carmichael & Company’s focus is to help define and execute strategy for healthcare organizations as well as to assist companies trying to capture more business from the healthcare industry.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work with Brad and the entire Skillman team. Not only do they have the technical expertise needed to manage today’s complicated healthcare projects, but they professionally represent the owner’s interests from start to finish. They will add significant value to any project they manage,”     – Julie Carmichael.

Currently, a large percentage of Skillman’s work is for educational clients. However, the current boom in healthcare construction coupled with Skillman’s expertise with complex facilities, makes healthcare a logical market to pursue. President & Owner, Brad Skillman, chose Carmichael & Company to help him grow their healthcare business because of Carmichael’s industry knowledge and relationships.

“Julie has impressive leadership experience in the healthcare industry. Her background and her insight into the needs of healthcare clients make her the perfect partner as Skillman expands its presence in the healthcare market,” shared Brad Skillman, President of The Skillman Corporation.
