NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tomorrow Health today announced that Rodrigo Arévalo joined the company's leadership team as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Arévalo will join CEO Vijay Kedar in pushing forward the company's mission to reimagine healthcare in the home.
Arévalo is a seasoned leader with years of operational expertise. He is best known for his time at Uber where he joined in 2013 as General Manager of Mexico. As Uber's first employee in Latin America, Arévalo was responsible for launching and scaling Uber's ride sharing operations in Mexico and negotiating the company's first ride sharing agreements outside of the US. Under his leadership, Uber in Latin America grew to $10B in GMV and became one of the company's most profitable business units and Mexico's largest job creator. He went on to become Regional General Manager of Latin America followed by Head of Uber Eats for Europe, Middle East, and Africa - through which he grew and scaled the business 2.5x in 18 months.
Arévalo comes to Tomorrow Health with a wealth of knowledge on scaling complex systems and problem solving to grow quickly and sustainably. He is joining Tomorrow Health to build and scale its home-based care marketplace, leveraging technology enabled operations to coordinate the products and services patients need in the home. He is passionate about building systems and teams from scratch with a constant focus on serving the end user. "I like to solve hard problems," he shares. "The harder it is, the more fun I tend to have. Solving healthcare in the United States has to be one of the most difficult problems out there. At Tomorrow Health, we're re-architecting the home-based care ecosystem by building a platform to holistically streamline the coordination and management of quality home medical equipment, supplies and services."
To Arévalo, Tomorrow Health's vision of transforming health care at home was not only an intriguing problem to solve, but also a personal one. After losing his father to cancer in August 2020, Arévalo became even more inspired to re-envision broken parts of the healthcare system to create a more accessible and streamlined experience for patients in need.

Arévalo joins Tomorrow Health's team along with leadership hires in key roles across the business.
