NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Concierge Key Health™ (CKH)— the first concierge membership company that extends the healthcare experience through the entire continuum of care — is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Afable, M.D., to president and chief executive officer (CEO). Former CEO Robert E. Grant will retain the role of founder and chairman of the board of directors.
“Without a doubt, there is no one better qualified than Dr. Afable to lead Concierge Key Health into the future,” says Grant, the healthcare entrepreneur and executive who successfully founded and launched CKH last year. “With his unparalleled experience as a top physician and deep expertise in health system administration, we are confident Dr. Afable will continue to build on our vision to transform the healthcare experience and set a new standard in ease, access and quality for today’s discerning consumers.”
A decades-long healthcare industry veteran, Dr. Afable recently retired as CEO of St. Joseph Hoag Health, the largest health system in Orange County, Calif.
