Effective Sept. 6, Brown will work with physicians and staff at Royal Inland Hospital and Kelowna General Hospital to deliver a seamless tertiary service over two sites. In addition, she will play a role in the expansion of Interior Health’s cardiac program and the development of the Medical School.

Brown’s career in health-care operations has spanned 28 years in both Canada and the United Kingdom. Most recently she has been working with Fraser Health Authority as the executive director, Medicine Program for Fraser Health’s 12 hospitals.
