Previously, he was president and CEO of Dignity Health, which grew under his leadership from a holding company into a dynamic healthcare enterprise to become CommonSpirit Health.

"I am thrilled and delighted to join Guidehouse's board and am looking forward to bringing my insight and passion for health and social equity to the firm and its clients," said Mr. Dean. "Together, we will innovate for the greater good and make meaningful change."
