We would love to get to know you. Tell us a little more, so we can connect.
We are a consulting company that partners with self-insured employers. We help employers lower their healthcare insurance costs and save lives for their employees and insured dependents who suffer from chronic kidney disease.

We work with employers and other healthcare payers to identify employees who are suffering from kidney disease and would benefit from a kidney transplant rather than dialysis. Our goal is to help employers save money on healthcare benefits costs and create a better quality of life for those suffering from kidney disease.
In the first two years of working with our first client, Rejuvenate was able that company $1.4 million in avoided medical costs such as expensive dialysis treatments by helping to facilitate kidney transplants for five employees. These employees received new kidneys and enhanced quality of life.
Here is an example of an employee we were able to help. He lived in a southern state, did not have a potential living kidney donor, and his expected waiting time for a deceased donor kidney was anticipated to be three years at the transplant center where he had been listed on the waiting list. Rejuvenate spoke with this patient, his kidney doctor and the patient’s nephrologist and recommended that the patient move to a different transplant center with a shorter waiting time. Following our process, we recommended three different transplant centers. The patient chose to go to University of Toledo Medical Center and his kidney doctor sent a referral there so that he could be evaluated. You can see the how the quality of the University of Toledo Medical Center is measured by the https://www.srtr.org/. Seven weeks later he was transplanted, and he continues to do well today. He has given Rejuvenate permission to share his story.
We help accelerate access to kidney transplants for our clients by identifying the most efficient transplant centers – those that expedite patient evaluations for wait list eligibility and identify opportunities for living donor kidney transplantation. We work with our clients to match those centers with those that are accepted by their health insurance plan. Our number one priority is to help those suffering from end stage renal disease (ESRD) to get referred and waitlisted with these to a transplant center as quickly as possible.
Next, we help these employees pass through the evaluation process as soon as possible. If barriers are identified by the transplant center, Rejuvenate works with transplant candidates to overcome barriers and get on the wait list. Our team helps clients and their employees navigate this complex world.
Patients who receive a kidney before or soon after starting dialysis generally have better transplant outcomes than patients who’ve been on dialysis for a long time.
Since only 17% of patients in the United States who start dialysis are placed on a wait list for a deceased donor kidney and eventually transplanted, it is important to work with our team as early as possible. At Rejuvenate, our goal is to more than triple this rate for those we serve who are suitable kidney transplant candidates.
Rejuvenate’s CEO and chief clinical officer together have more than 40 years’ experience working in the field of organ transplantation – covering the entire spectrum from patient workup and pre-transplant readiness to transplant surgery and post-transplant care. This experience, combined with their network and relationships with colleagues in the transplant field provide the expertise and knowledge of how to work with transplant centers.
Our leadership team, inclusive of Nobel Prizewinner Alvin Roth, PhD, has contributed proprietary knowledge that allows our unique process to shorten the time for a kidney failure patient to get a life-saving transplant. This includes expediting referrals, evaluations and time spent on the wait list.
Rejuvenate measures success by our ability to help client employers partner with their employees who suffer from end-stage renal disease to enhance their quality of life and save money on employer-funded medical costs.
Unfortunately, there are no guarantees when it comes to organ transplantation. However, we are driven by the data that shows those who undergo kidney transplantation live at least 10 years longer than those who remain on dialysis. For most patients, undergoing kidney transplantation is the best choice for their renal replacement therapy and an improved quality of life. Ultimately, this is the decision of the transplant center and patient.
