New president will focus on expanding value-based services
authors Geert De Lombaerde
Kidney care entrepreneur Jerry Tannenbaum has recruited to the leadership team of his Sanderling Renal Services a former senior Gambro Healthcare and DaVita executive.
Dennis Kogod has joined downtown-based Sanderling as president and will help expand the eight-year-old company’s dialysis and nephrology services, including its home-based and telehealth platforms. Kogod was president and COO of the former Gambro from 2000 to 2005, when DaVita bought Gambro. As president and COO of DaVita, he subsequently grew the former Gambro network from about 550 clinics to 1,800 and some $8 billion in revenues. Kogod later led DaVita’s population health and international units.
In a statement, Tannenbaum — who is Sanderling’s chairman and CEO — said he is looking for Kogod to grow “the exciting value-based segment” of its business.
Tannenbaum previously built National Nephrology Associates and DSI Renal, among other ventures. He launched Sanderling Healthcare in 2008 to market modular hospital construction services and founded Sanderling Renal Services four years later. The latter now runs dialysis clinics in five states and markets renal telemedicine and acute dialysis services to hospitals in 14 states.
