“Cumberland Consulting Group was a key contributor to our successful Epic implementation across six hospitals. We were able to complete this go-live because we had a partner that had significant large-scale Epic implementation experience.”Chad Brisendine, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, St. Luke's University Health Network
