Hospitals & Health Systems

McAllister & Quinn provides Federal grant consulting for hospitals and health systems seeking external funding for priorities such as telehealth, health workforce development, community health, and infrastructure.

We have a proven record of helping healthcare clients proactively identify, pursue and obtain Federal funding for these key initiatives. We accomplish this by gaining insights into an institution’s strengths and strategic goals. McAllister & Quinn then maps out specific Federal and foundation grant opportunities into a funding matrix. Once grant targets are identified, McAllister & Quinn assigns a project manager to work with a writing team drawn from a nationwide network of grant writing professionals to write and submit the grant to the Federal agency or foundation. McAllister & Quinn also provides health care clients with actionable intelligence on Federal agency priorities, including relief to assist health providers recover from the COVID-19 crisis. We also provide timely, targeted healthcare policy and business impact analysis.


Strategic Intelligence

McAllister & Quinn regularly provides summaries on funding opportunities, policy directives, regulatory developments and other relevant information to our Hospital & Health System clients. We also regularly provide trainings and presentations on key priorities for federal agencies of interest to health providers. This approach ensures that McAllister & Quinn’s clients are “ahead of the curve” in terms of understanding agencies goals and associated funding opportunities. 

Professional Grant Writing

Each year, billions in funding are available to hospitals and health systems through competitive grant programs. We work daily with our hospitals and health systems to write grant applications in response to grant competitions administered by relevant federal agencies. McAllister & Quinn can work with your health system to craft grant applications that will result in funding for major initiatives in the fields of community health, healthcare workforce development, telehealth, research, and capital needs.
