Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 02, 2015
It was announced today that The National Kidney Foundation has conferred the Leadership in Business Award to Joseph Cosgrove, Chairman, President & CEO of Pentec Health, Inc. In its nominating and selection process, the NKF recognized the role and leadership Mr. Cosgrove demonstrated in guiding Pentec to prominence as the nation’s leading provider of intradialytic parenteral nutrition (IDPN), a supplemental form of nutrition for renal dialysis patients. Patients with chronic kidney disease may exhibit protein wasting and caloric malnutrition and therefore, could benefit from IDPN therapy.
“It is a pleasure to be presenting Mr. Cosgove with the Leadership in Business Award at March’s NKF Honors Award Ceremony. Mr. Cosgrove and Pentec Health are committed to improving the health and quality of life for dialysis patients and help to provide top quality care right here in the Delaware Valley and across the U.S,” said Christin Naab, Executive Director of the National Kidney Foundation in Philadelphia.
Under Joe Cosgrove’s direction, Pentec has made significant contributions to the renal community by promoting awareness, prevention, and treatment programs. Consistent with corporate efforts, Mr. Cosgrove has long demonstrated his dedication to improving the lives of those with kidney disease through his personal involvement in NKF community events. Cosgrove commented, “There is no greater accolade for a health care company than to be recognized for its contributions to patient and provider constituencies. I am honored and humbled by the NKF award and accept it on behalf of my Pentec colleagues. We look forward to continuing our support of the National Kidney Foundation and its valiant mission of creating awareness of kidney disease and targeting programs for prevention and treatment.”
Mr. Cosgrove will be honored on World Kidney Day, Thursday, March 10, 2016, at the National Kidney Foundation Honors Awards Reception in Philadelphia.
