Our Story

Front Health was initially born out of a health system collaborative, focused on transforming care across six of the largest health systems in Ohio, with many of our solutions incubated there. Today, we serve leading healthcare organizations across the country, both those that pay for and deliver care.

Taylor Pressler

Director of Clinical Transformation

Taylor is a long time competitive swimmer.  She enjoys swimming with a US Masters team and coaching the local summer swim team.  She and her husband Gabriel have three children: William, Elianah, and Margaret.  You can often find them together in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, hosting dinners for friends and family, and in the garden.
