Dr. Richard Gibney
Dr. Richard Gibney has been in the kidney care industry for over four decades. Like many nephrologists (kidney specialists) he simply didn’t know that there were alternatives to the status quo. In 2006, a partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) inspired him to innovate. Years later, his eyes were opened by a visit about an acclaimed dialysis program in Jonkoping, Sweden.
Over a four year period, Dr. Gibney led the successful transformation of 11 dialysis units in central Texas to an empowered model, serving over 500 patients with exceptional results. Staff and patients were extremely satisfied, and mortality and hospitalizations were cut in half. Today, Dr. Gibney and his specialized team of doctors, nurses, and technicians help others achieve the same empowered results.
