David Navazio is the Chief Operating Officer and founder of Gentell.
David is responsible for the operation of Gentell including manufacturing, FDA compliance and product development. He started out with the development of a home medical equipment and respiratory company. Through a series of acquisitions and a consistently increasing customer base, the company soon became a leader in the industry and was the first company to develop wound healing protocols exclusively for Nursing Homes. These protocols were the preamble of Gentell and revolutionized wound care by providing education along with treatment options.
In addition, David worked tirelessly with the National Association for the Support of Long Term Care (NASL) and chaired the committee responsible for having the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) recognize advanced wound care products. The result was a Congressional change to the Medicare Coverage Policies (Section 2079) to not only recognize wound care but to provide coverage for advanced wound care products. Today, many state health programs have been utilizing the Medicare parameters and adding coverage for wound care products.
David is a past president of the Rotary Club of Trenton, NJ, the Assistant Governor for Rotary District 7510, and a member of the Advisory Board of the Salvation Army, West Central New Jersey region.
