Lisa Sackuvich, R.N., B.S.N., CRNI
Owner & President
Lisa Sackuvich founded ARJ Infusion Services in 2000 with the idea that children and adults deserve a higher level of infusion care. Her belief is simple: Every patient deserves high-touch, personalized care for treatment of their rare and chronic conditions.
This approach has enabled Lisa to grow the home-based infusion and specialty pharmacy company into a flourishing multimillion-dollar national organization—without losing focus of her original vision to provide quality, compassionate infusion care. Under Lisa’s leadership, ARJ achieved 96 percent patient satisfaction in 2018 and earned URAC accreditation in 2019.
While ARJ’s headquarters remain in the Kansas City metropolitan area, the organization has successfully expanded operations to include nine dispensing pharmacies and nursing facilities across the Midwest. In 2017, the company launched six new ARJ Infusion Suite locations that offer on-site clinical care to complement its in-home care model.
Most recently the company was named among the “Top Largest Private Companies” by Kansas City Business Journal. In 2016, Lisa was recognized as a “Woman Who Means Business” in Kansas City Business Journal’s annual recognition of metro business leaders. She has also been honored for her entrepreneurial leadership in such publications as Enterprising Women and Thinking Bigger Business Media.
Lisa is passionate about advocating for patients and the community through numerous philanthropic contributions. Since launching ARJ, she has donated more than $4 million dollars to local and national nonprofits. Through ARJ’s Patient Engagement Department, the company has secured $5 million in financial assistance and lifestyle resources for patients in 2018.
Currently Lisa sits on the board of directors for Myasthenia Gravis Association, where she has also served as president. She has been a member of Infusion Nurses Society since 1990, and is active in Hemophilia Federation of America, Immunoglobulin National Society, Midwest Hemophilia Association, National Hemophilia Foundation, and World Federation of Hemophilia.
