Kirby R. Ryan, Jr.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
With over 30 years of healthcare experience, Kirby is a highly accomplished Corporate Officer and Senior Executive bringing a broad skillset to the Loran Group. A long career in the alternate site and post-acute care settings has allowed him to develop a keen intuition and unique ability to drive meaningful change in healthcare delivery. It was Kirby’s vision that brought together the core group of talented consultants that form the Loran Group. A forward-thinking strategist, he has been successful in consistently maximizing human capital, driving revenue growth, capturing market share and increasing efficiencies.
Prior to his independent consulting work and the founding of Loran Group, Kirby gained valuable experience as Founding President and CEO of Clinical Mobility, a national provider of on-site healthcare programs focused on wellness and screenings. The company launched a national influenza vaccination program that consisted of more than 1,500 three-day clinics in 32 states, delivering more than 175,000 vaccinations in company’s first three months.
Kirby also served as VP of Sales & Business Development at MediMart, where he launched a national wound care program and transformed a 20 percent sales decline into 18 percent growth. He was also Division Vice President at U.S. Oncology, where he led the creation of a new division focused on clinical care pathways and improving patient outcomes, expertly forging partnerships between physician practices, corporations and payer partners.
Kirby’s tenure at Golden Living/Golden Innovations gave him additional insights in post-acute healthcare for patients in skilled nursing facilities. As Vice President of New Business Development, he directed four business units: rehabilitation, home care, hospice and purchasing. In addition, he developed and implemented a wellness campaign, Walk with Aegis Therapies, that is now an annual event with over 600 locations and over 80,000 participants nationwide. The program was nationally recognized by the International Council on Active Aging with their annual Innovator Award for innovation in approach and support of Active Aging in the senior population. He also orchestrated an Institute for Healthcare Improvement study with DeKalb Hospital focused on reducing readmissions for patients discharged with a diagnosis of CHF. The initiative resulted in a greater than 30 percent reduction in CHF readmissions.
Kirby attended the University of Tampa, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Marine Science and Biology, and a minor in Chemistry. Kirby lives outside Orlando with his wife and has two grown children.
