Kuerbitz will remain with FMC until mid-February and will assist in the leadership transition during that time.

“Fresenius Medical Care and agilon health share a vision for making health care more effective by empowering patients and caregivers with the administrative, technology and management resources that enable them to focus the right resources on the right patient at the right time and place, although in different areas of the health care sector,” said Kuerbitz. “That focus is essential to the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care – and is the path to better outcomes, better experiences and better economics for all participants in the system.”
