Ron Hewett Joins U.S. Urology Partners in Business Development Leadership Role
U.S. Urology Partners is pleased to announce that Ron Hewett, a healthcare leader with more than three decades of experience in the industry, has joined the company’s senior management team.
Following the recently announced partnership with Associated Medical Professionals of New York, U.S. Urology Partners has emerged as one of the largest providers of urological and related specialty services in the nation. The relationship with AMP, along with the success of Central Ohio Urology Group, have fueled interest within the industry of the unique partnership opportunity offered by U.S. Urology Partners.
Hewett expects the strong growth trajectory of U.S. Urology Partners to continue. Hewett says, “In the specialty physician practice landscape, many specialties have been consolidating for years. The urology specialty is in the very early stages of consolidation.”
“I believe US Urology Partners’ model which offers a physician centric, patient centric platform is an excellent choice for practices seeking a transition through a growth partner,” states Hewett. “U.S. Urology Partner practices can be confident that the partnership will ensure state-of-the-art facilities, advanced therapies and back office efficiencies that will provide the physician partners the additional focus to deliver their expertise to their patients. “
Mr. Hewett has over 30 years of experience providing strategic planning and leadership across a myriad of healthcare organizations. He spent more than 15 years in the pharmaceutical industry holding senior sales leadership roles with Schering-Plough, Xcel and Valeant Pharmaceuticals.
Mr. Hewett then transitioned into VP Sales for Oppenheimer Urologic Laboratory, a urology-specific reference laboratory with a national presence. OURLab was eventually purchased by BioReference, an OPKO Health company. Mr. Hewett went on to serve as a VP Sales for PathGroup, the largest privately held laboratory in America. He then served as Principal and Executive VP of Sales for Rural Physician Partners, a rural health offering in diagnostics, sleep and pharmacy. Recently, Mr. Hewett has served as VP of Business Development for American Pathology Partners, where his role was to identify privately held laboratories for purchase, and as VP Business Development for Paladina Health.
Mr. Hewett received a Master of Business Administration from Wake Forest University and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
