“Mindy has been a passionate supporter of ILMGMA for almost ten years.  She has helped guide the association through a number of changes and has built long-standing relationships with many of our members.  We are grateful for everything Mindy has done for ILMGMA over the years,” said John Giertz, President of ILMGMA.  Giertz continued, “We wish her well as she enters this next chapter of her life.”


Epoxy Healthcare, LLC has been awarded the contract to provide all executive and administrative management services for ILMGMA.  Eric J. Brodsky, FACMPE and cofounder of the firm has been appointed the new Executive Director of ILMGMA.  Eric has over 30 years of healthcare experience.  Eric has been working as healthcare consultant since 2016. Prior to that, he served as the Chief Operating Officer of Midwest Center for Women’s Healthcare in Northbrook, IL. Eric has been an active member of Illinois MGMA for many years. He served as the President of ILMGMA in 2011, has served as the chair of the ILMGMA Payer Committee, is currently a member of the ILMGMA Legislative Committee and is the ACMPE Forum representative for the State of Illinois.


Eric will be supported in his new role by his business partner Debra O’Shea, CMPE. She is a long-standing ILMGMA member.  Debra has a strong background in executive, administrative and practice management. Eric and Debra’s firm will handle all the administrative aspects of running the association.  


“We are very excited to have Eric at the helm as we move forward.  He is truly one of the biggest supporters of ILMGMA.   I believe his leadership will help us to continue to improve the value of an ILMGMA membership for all of our members,” commented John Giertz, President of ILMGMA. 


“I am excited about this opportunity. As a former practice executive, I believe I will be able to bring a new perspective to the management of the association.  I am also hopeful that I will be able to utilize my statewide connections and resources to expand the educational opportunities for all ILMGMA practice executives whether they are in private practice or employed by hospitals throughout the entire state of Illinois,” said Eric Brodsky, FACMPE.
