Meet Maria Todd

Denver-based consultant, award-winning speaker, trainer and author, Maria Todd, brings you her best insights and strategies from working on various healthcare, health tourism and international development projects in the USA, Europe, Asia, Latin America and Central America for over 30 years.

How did she get to this point in her career?

Maria Todd set out early in life to work as a self-employed business owner. In 1980, Maria refused to be bound by norms or convention. She envisaged a specialized, niche consulting firm that enhanced healthcare businesses staffed by an integrated team of healthcare business consultants. For the first 20 years, she worked alone to build her personal brand. Then, in 2010, she changed the business model to one made up of independent professional advisors and technical experts. Team members guide industry leaders in healthcare business operations, quality, safety, marketing, revenue cycle, patient care innovation, and third-party payer contracting and rebranded as Mercury Healthcare International (MHI). MHI provides advice and other services for healthcare and health tourism through a select group of hand-picked experts, creatives, analysts, and others who provide insights on direct patient care, education, research and business development support services.

The doyenne

Maria Todd has been living and breathing the world of healthcare and health tourism for over 30 years in more than 120 countries, giving her the perspectives to share unique, innovative and valuable guidance for clients. She has continually refined, transformed and perfected her approach to managed care contracting, healthcare and health tourism business improvement, concierge medicine, health tourism, and U.S. and international healthcare marketing and revenue cycle challenges. She continues that effort today and is always working to improve her knowledge and skills and sharing them with others.  Maria Todd is delighted to bring you quality advice and guidance, value for money, collaboration, and training as your healthcare or health tourism consulting firm of choice. 

Industry contributions

As part of her professional work as a consultant, speaker and author, Maria Todd travels a great deal, not only all over the Americas but also internationally. Wherever she is, she encounters the latest and greatest hospitals, clinics, healthcare practitioners, hotels, restaurants and local attractions that integrate vertically or horizontally— and meets with many government officials and investors. She identifies rising trends and really amazing ideas as well as some things that are pretty bad, where an opportunity to do something great was missed. Maria writes, speaks, and consults internationally about her experiences and professional activities with the good and the bad in healthcare and health and wellness tourism and provides insights regarding what stakeholders, investors and government authorities might learn from these examples.
