Guest Biographies

While maintaining his Prof. Engineering license within Ontario, Roger Holliss manages 7 support departments for St. Mary’s General Hospital (SMGH) as its Engineering & Development Director. SMGH itself is a medium-small acute care hospital in Kitchener ON which is also the cardiac center for S-W Ontario. Through the course of his 19 years in healthcare, Roger has become increasingly involved in numerous facets of healthcare beyond the “brick & mortar” of SMGH both provincially & nationally. This includes, but isn’t limited to, contributing to CSA’s medical gas and brand new “Cleaning & Disinfection within Healthcare Facilities (HCF’s)” standards both as SMGH’s facility director but also representing other HCF managers across Canada as the vice-president of CHES National. CHES (Cdn. Healthcare Engineering Society) is Canada’s single largest association representing the facility managers/ directors of over 700 HCF’s across the country. Most recently, he’s been asked to be part of a provincial initiative aimed at addressing the greenhouse gases (GHG’s) associated with Ontario’s operating rooms.

John Marshman is the Executive Director of Facilities Operations at William Osler HS where he oversees Engineering Operations, Environmental Services, Energy, Parking, Food Services, Waste Management, Materials Management and Security for three healthcare facilities while supporting the planning and execution of Osler’s redevelopment agenda. After studies in engineering and music, John pursued parallel careers in consulting engineering and as a performing cellist. Drawn by the complexities of hospital systems, John spent the bulk of his consulting work in the design and project management of hospital construction and renovation projects. In 2012, John joined the Brant Community Healthcare System where he served as Director of Facilities, Planning and Redevelopment before moving to William Osler.

Tom Kovendi has 25 years senior management experience in facilities operations and management, involving large multiple site portfolios throughout Canada and internationally. In the healthcare sector, he has provided operational leadership and re-engineering facility service departments that included buildings/plant operations, construction project management, environmental services, security, biomedical engineering and foodservices at Mount Sinai Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital and City of Toronto Long-Term Care Facilities. Currently he is Director –Engineering, Facilities and Redevelopment at Headwaters Health Care Centre in Orangeville, Ontario.
