EmpiRx Health President Named as CEO

Montvale-based EmpiRx Health announced that the company’s president, Danny Sanchez, has been named chief executive officer. As part of a planned transition, Sanchez succeeds Karthik Ganesh who has served as President and then CEO of EmpiRx Health during the past five years.

“EmpiRx Health is now the pharmacy benefit management (PBM) of choice for self-funded plan sponsors looking for a highly differentiated level of care, savings, and service,” said Ganesh. “Despite our incredible growth and business results over the years, we have never lost sight of the fact that we are a healthcare company first. I have immense confidence in Danny’s ability to not just drive exponential growth, but to also stay true to EmpiRx Health’s core mission of improving our corner of healthcare, one patient and one client at time.”

“I truly believe this is an historic moment for EmpiRx Health, especially as traditional PBMs come under increased scrutiny for their fundamentally flawed business approach that prioritizes drug volume to fuel profits,” said Sanchez. “I want to thank Karthik for building this organization into the thriving and formidable industry change-maker that it is today. I have been so impressed with how EmpiRx Health has successfully transformed the PBM industry for the benefit of clients and their employee populations nationwide and as CEO, I am thrilled to further our company mission to revolutionize the healthcare benefits industry.”

Sanchez joined EmpiRx Health in February 2023, bringing more than 20 years of broad-based healthcare industry experience. Prior to joining EmpiRx Health, Sanchez worked for more than 18 years at Omnicell, the global healthcare technology company. Most recently, Sanchez served as senior vice president and general manager of EnlivenHealth®, the Omnicell division that builds industry-leading digital technology solutions for the retail pharmacy industry.
