Chief Commercial Officer,
Heather’s expertise spans across the healthcare continuum with a focus on design, implementation and execution of hospital and health system strategies that improve patient care. Heather, one of Modern Healthcare’s “10 Women Leaders to Watch” in 2019, has a 20-year plus career where she held positions of significant responsibility for strategy, operations and finance, including various roles in hospital management, quality, strategy and high-value healthcare delivery.
In 2019, Civica Rx’s first full year in operation, Heather led Civica’s Health System Membership Relationships team as it grew its membership to include over 45 health systems, representing 1,200 hospitals across the US, and delivered its first essential medications to market to address drug shortages. By December, 18 Civica medications were in production, with many more to come, thanks to ongoing team collaboration with health system pharmacy leaders and clinicians who help prioritize the medications Civica makes.
Prior to joining Civica, Heather worked at Intermountain Healthcare as an Enterprise Initiative Partner and was responsible for driving forward Intermountain’s key strategic initiatives. Before this position, Heather was the Operations Officer for Intermountain Healthcare’s LDS Hospital, with accountability for hospital-wide operations, strategic growth and high-value healthcare delivery.
