Following aggressive surgery and chemotherapy treatments for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 28, founder & CEO Michael O’Neil emerged healthy, humbled and inspired. Shelving his hard-earned Georgetown law degree, he set out to tackle an unaddressed problem in health care: how to successfully engage patients and families in the care process.
Drawing from his experience, Michael started GetWellNetwork on the premise that a more active and involved patient is a better, healthier patient. Nearly two decades later, his vision for transforming the patient experience has become a core strategy for hospitals around the globe and given millions a voice in their care.
Michael serves on the board of directors for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and The DAISY Foundation, and is an E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year award winner. He holds a bachelor of arts from the University of Notre Dame and a juris doctor and master of business administration from Georgetown University.
