Kwarta, 38, will lead the North American operations of a Colorado-based, global company whose mission is to increase the efficiency and quality of care in forward-looking health systems. Sonderegger will remain in Denver as global CEO of Swisslog Healthcare.
“For the past ten years, Cory has taken on progressive leadership positions at Swisslog Healthcare. He has served in customer care, operations and project management, and for the past three years, as a member of our executive leadership team,” said Sonderegger.
“Cory is a highly ethical, results-oriented and customer-centric leader who is committed to our vision, our company and our team members,” Sonderegger continued. “He is the right person to lead the North American team at Swisslog Healthcare, the global leader in inpatient pharmacy robotic automation, as the company invests in pharmacy software, analytics and solutions.”

“I am honored and thrilled to be selected to lead the North American business of Swisslog Healthcare and look forward to launching new initiatives that further empower pharmacies and contribute to improving human health,” Kwarta said.
