Hemodialysis Technology Company Diality Names Robert Funari to its Board of Directors

IRVINE, Calif. , May 31 /Businesswire/ - Diality Inc., a medical technology company developing a smart, flexible hemodialysis platform, today announced the appointment of healthcare veteran Robert Funari to its board of directors.

Funari has spent nearly 50 years in the healthcare industry in public and privately held companies, in both services and medical devices. He has served as president and CEO of several companies, including Syncor International (acquired by Cardinal Health) and Crescent Healthcare, and as chairman or director of several companies, including Patient Care America and Beckman Coulter. He was chairman of hemodialysis technology company NxStage Medical until its 2019 acquisition by Fresenius Medical Care. At Baxter International, he held a variety of roles for nearly 20 years, ultimately serving as president of its Pharmaseal division.

“Robert has an outstanding, half-century record of bringing his knowledge and strategic thinking to bear on the constantly evolving healthcare market,” said Osman Khawar, MD, CEO of Diality. “His insights will be invaluable as we prepare to bring our new hemodialysis system to market to empower kidney care providers while prioritizing patient care and quality of life.”

Diality’s hemodialysis system is designed to be versatile enough for any care setting. Its compact footprint together with an intuitive user interface are intended to enable it to be easily integrated into – and transported within – any dialysis setting, be it acute-care hospital, dialysis clinic, transitional care unit, traditional home, or skilled nursing facility.

“Diality’s novel approach to developing an extremely flexible hemodialysis system interested me from the start,” added Funari. “I look forward to working with the strong leadership team Osman has assembled to help bring its mission of improving lives impacted by kidney disease to fruition.”

Diality also announced that Aaron Mishkin is leaving its board of directors.

“We thank Aaron for his dedicated service at Diality, and wish him well in his future endeavors,” Khawar said.
