ProgenyHealth® Names Brian Ko as Chief Financial Officer
Plymouth Meeting, PA, January 27, 2020 – ProgenyHealth, LLC, today announces the appointment of Brian Ko as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. ProgenyHealth’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of the next generation by delivering comprehensive utilization management and case management solutions that help ensure infants admitted to the NICU receive the highest standard of care, in the hospital and at home, throughout the first year of life.
In this role, Mr. Ko will be responsible for the overall financial strategy to meet ProgenyHealth’s growth goals and deliver on the company’s value proposition. He has over 20 years of experience as a healthcare executive and consultant driving growth, continuous improvement, profitability and corporate development activities.

Ellie Stang, MD, ProgenyHealth’s Founder and CEO, states that, “The demand for our services is growing because ProgenyHealth is providing real solutions that work for managing a complex, costly population. Whether it’s our deep expertise in managed Medicaid that is improving health outcomes and reducing dollars spent, or the impact we are having with our commercial health plan partners in providing strong value for them and their employer groups, ProgenyHealth remains front and center as the national leader in care management for premature and medically complex newborns. This is a challenging mission that requires highly specialized teams working closely at a local level with their hospital-based peers and a data-driven approach to measuring financial and clinical outcomes. Brian is an accomplished executive with deep expertise working collaboratively with internal teams to streamline business operations that drive growth and increase efficiency and profitability. He is a skilled leader who brings a mix of insightful business acumen and tactical execution that is a welcome addition to our executive team. We are so happy to have him onboard.”
