Meet the Covenant Team
The two words company founder Ralph Barrientos most often uses to describe the Covenant team are "Experienced" and "Responsive."
Experience in the OR and throughout healthcare facilities where we spend most of our days. Experience in streamlining processes and problem solving. And, experience that teaches no project is ever done without real follow-through.
Responsiveness? That starts with our first conversation, carries through each customer interaction and is present everyday in our Service.
Meet the Covenant team.
Experienced and Responsive.
Covenant Healthcare Equipment & Consulting was founded by Ralph A. Barrientos. Ralph is a graduate of California State University Chico, Bachelor of Arts in History. He is currently pursuing an MBA in Leadership & Healthcare Administration from Liberty University, Lynchburg Virginia.
Ralph has extensive knowledge of the global healthcare business and has spent part of his
career with Medline Industry’s, Hill-Rom, Barr Medical Inc., and Trumpf Medical Systems, prior to the Hill-Rom acquisition which eventually brought Ralph back to Hill-Rom in 2014. Over the course of his career, Ralph has had a uniquely developed skill set including clinical and administrative experience within the Operating Room Environment, Medical-Surgical, as well as Critical Care areas. His comprehensive understanding of the hospital environment makes him the ideal person to lead our team.
Dan O’Keefe's 20+ years in the medical equipment business has seen him partner with leading manufacturers including Capsa Solutions, Hill-Rom, Berchtold (now Stryker), Linet Americas, Trumpf Medical (now Hill-Rom) and IPA (scrubEx). He was the Principal of Integrated Medical, Inc., a full service Los Angeles-based Skytron distributor, for 12 years.
Prior to entering the medical equipment field, Dan made a name on the sports fields of Claremont McKenna College where he was as a member of two SCIAC championship football teams, and served as captain of the Track and Field team, earning All-American honors in the Hammer Thrower. In the class room he earned a BA in Government.
Dan originally met Covenant founder, Ralph Barrientos during a Hill-Rom training program in 1999. His background in the operating room, med-surg and critical care areas make him a valuable asset to Covenant.
Our Sales Team's experience in the OR, Med-Surg and throughout the hospital make Covenant the optimal partner for your facility.
