The delivery of quality care and strong business results are not mutually exclusive.

One does not have to be a trade-off for the other. Over time, relationships between physicians, insurers and hospitals have grown exponentially more complex. Administrative and other services that were once handled on your behalf are now squarely on your shoulders. Regulatory and compliance issues are taking more and more time from your practice and core business. Recruitment and contract negotiations are much more time-consuming and and complicated by compliance rules and regulations.

These changes show no sign of subsiding.

Executive Healthcare Partnerships offers strategic consulting and operational support that helps you focus on the things you care most about. Growth. Diversification. And most of all, healthier, happier patients, employees and members. Let's work together to bring the future of your practice or lines of service into focus.

Daryn Kumar


For more than twenty five years, Daryn Kumar has been a champion for improvements in healthcare. While rising through the ranks from a hospital assistant administrator to CEO, Daryn developed a clear sense of how things work, and how to improve things that don't. Leading, planning and exercising oversight for all hospital operational departments has helped him understand the importance - and challenges - of the physician / insurer / hospital relationship.

Daryn's professional accomplishments are numerous, beginning with his ten-year service in the United States Air Force in the 1990's. Most recently he served as CEO of a large 400+ bed regional medical center. Through his 25 year career in healthcare, he's been responsible for thousands of hospital beds and employees, with budgets in excess of $500 million.

Daryn is also a strong supporter and board member for healthcare related community organizations, especially those that are working to reduce the homeless population.

"In my experience, the most important lesson I've learned is that you cannot be successful in healthcare without healthy partnerships". - Daryn Kumar
