Former Providence Health Care president and chief executive officer Carl Roy is back working in the public healthcare system. Mr. Roy completed a five-year term as head of the faith-based care organization on September 22, 2006. Five days later, he was named president and chief executive officer of Perceptronix Medical Inc, a cancer diagnostics company. That appointment didn't last very long. Seven months later, he took up a similar job with bioLytical Laboratories Inc. - which produces a rapid HIV test kit. In the news release announcing that appointment, Mr. Roy's experience with Perceptronix was described as "short but highly successful," having shifted the company's "strategic focus from research and development to product commercialization." More recently, though, he's been "providing consulting services to Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health Authorities, among other corporate contracts" - including assisting in the consolidation of "corporate, clinical support and back office functions" at those organizations.
As we earlier reported, that process is being monitored by Accenture Inc. But now he's been named senior vice president of the Provincial Health Services Authority, taking on responsibility for the BC Ambulance Service. The following is a complete copy of the aforementioned memo, which details other organizational changes at that authority.
