(Chicago, IL – September 26, 2019) – IVme Wellness + Performance, the Midwest leader in functional health medicine, is pleased to announce the appointment of Neil Morandi, M.D., to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective immediately.
Neil Morandi, M.D., brings exceptional focus and strong experience from founding and growing the medical startup, MedExpress Urgent Care. Morandi was co-founder of MedExpress Urgent Care, the largest urgent care company in the U.S., privately operating 141 centers in multiple states when it was acquired by Optum/United Healthcare in 2015. Neil is board-certified in emergency medicine, holds a BS degree in Biology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Doctoral of Medicine from Temple University School of Medicine, and completed his residency in Emergency Medicine from West Virginia University. Morandi’s extensive knowledge and experience from growing a medical services organization from one to 141 centers will be invaluable while at the helm managing IVme’s leadership team, setting a course for continued growth, and fostering the right culture for employee and customer success.
Since opening its doors in 2012, IVme has experienced exceptional growth and public interest in its elective medical treatments including IV hydration therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, medical diet program, aesthetics, and vitamin shots. “The last seven years have been an incredible ride. Growing from 1 to 3 centers, with more on the way, and rapidly expanding our menu of treatments has been exciting, but not without its challenges. I had the good fortune of being introduced to Neil in 2015. Neil has been an instrumental advisor to IVme’s leadership team and an incredible mentor to me,” said Dr. Jack Dybis, founder of IVme.
Dybis will continue to collaborate with Neil Morandi on the vision and business strategy, while dedicating more of his time to the responsibilities of Chief Medical Officer and patient care. Dybis added, “For IVme, I believe this is a significant moment and I’m excited for what’s to come.”
