Straight from Castlegar, trained as a nurse and as a paramedic (with two MBAs), with experience in Alberta setting up one of the first arthroplasty centres in Canada, in addition to experience leading Northern Health, Fraser Health, and now the Health and Technology District, Rowena Rizzotti shares her wealth of experience with us.
But wait - I literally didn't write out all her accomplishments; she oversaw the $500 million investment into a critical care tower in Surrey, BC, is the founder of Innovation Boulevard, and serves as the Vice President of Healthcare and Innovations for two private health sector companies.
You mean there's more? Rowena is also a member of the Conference Board of Canada Council for Innovation and Commercialization and is a Mentor for SFU Beedie School of Business as well as Founder and Chief Executive for the Institute for Healthcare Innovations.
