Having worked with Todd when he was employed by St. John, I was pleased to see his continued confident and positive energy on a consultation we had with his company for Lean process improvement at one of our free-standing ambulatory centers.

Lean Fox Solutions extensive healthcare background coupled with their facilitation skills gave us both the road map for success and the cultural change we needed to get to the next level.

Todd is the ultimate professional who has a wealth of knowledge in process and throughput. He has excellent work ethics and follow-up. I admire his ability to assess a situation, listen and offer suggestions that are usually not obvious to the team. Todd not only becomes a part of the team, but builds relationships and networks in the process.


~ Cheryl Fairbrother, Sr. Healthcare Leader

What I liked about Lean Fox Solutions was that they didn’t bring preconceived solutions to improve patient throughput. They used the resources of the hospital, specifically the front line staff to come up with customized answers to fit our needs. More importantly were the outcomes. The staff were empowered, efficiencies identified and implemented, and patient satisfaction scores improved significantly.


~ Jim Full, CEO, Memorial Healthcare

Todd: Thank you for sharing your expertise and presenting in our technical program at the World Conference on Lean & Six Sigma. Your presentation on 5S for Healthcare was very well received. You are an extraordinary professional in the area of Lean & Six Sigma. I believe your contributions in healthcare are not only noteworthy but also motivate and inspire others to achieve more.

~ John E. Gray, Chair 2013 World Conference on Lean & Six Sigma

Todd has been an instrumental driver with change management, Lean Six Sigma, and most recently blending Lean with Customer Service/Service Excellence.

I have personally had the opportunity to work with him at St. John Health System as well as contracted his services during my Directorship role at Leamington District Memorial Hospital.

He has many clients in healthcare and the service industry. He also has an advisory board; experts in various fields to assist any project or engagement. He has business savvy, adds humor to his presentations, comes highly recommended by colleagues and previous clients, and is a conduit to making change stick!


~ Sheri L. Testani, Healthcare Director, MSN, RN

Todd has a unique understanding of the needs of health care organizations and how Lean tools can be used to leverage improvements, create motivation and engagement and drive performance.  As a small community hospital, Todd helped us properly scope and scale our projects so we saw practical results quickly.  He is a terrific teacher and mentor and worked effectively with all stakeholders in our organization including physicians, management, leaders and front line associates.

~ Sarah Padfield, MPA, CHE, VP Corporate Services &, CFO, Leamington District Memorial Hospital

Our ED team and I have learned so much from his leadership.
