With 40 years of combined experience in bedside and healthcare management, emergency room physician Dr. Mark Prather and physician assistant Kevin Riddleberger join forces to create the first iteration of a game-changing healthcare delivery company: True North Health Navigation.

These entrepreneurs set out with the goal of creating a new kind of healthcare, one that improved patient outcomes, provided better patient and provider experiences, and lowered medical costs.
