CCHL Recognizes Roche Canada for their Outstanding Corporate Membership

April 12, 2021

The Canadian College of Health Leaders is proud to announce that Roche Canada has been named recipient of the 2021 President’s Award for Outstanding Corporate Membership in the College.

This award recognizes a corporate member who has consistently helped the College achieve its vision, mission, values and strategic directions.

Roche, a global pharmaceuticals and medical diagnostics leader, has been a corporate member of the College since 2005. Andrew Plank, President and General Manager, Roche Canada, is currently a member of the Corporate Advisory Council.

Through their financial support, Roche was instrumental in the delivery of our first virtual BC Health Leaders Conference in 2020. When the College was uncertain about delivering this event virtually, our friends at Roche expressed confidence and stepped up to provide their support as title sponsor. Our long-standing partnership with Roche has resulted in support for CCHL activities such as national and exclusive HPRSTM events, exclusive sponsorship of the Coaches Corner sessions at NHLC and the National Mentorship Award. In addition, Roche has provided their support towards the Honouring Health Leadership Event, published in Healthcare Management Forum and held the Corporate Director position on the College Board of Directors.

Together with their 90,000 employees working across more than 100 countries, Roche believes it is urgent to deliver medical solutions right now – even as they develop innovations for the future. Roche is committed to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the healthcare system in the diagnosis, treatment and management of acute and long-term disease in key therapeutic and diagnostic areas.

The President’s Award is given annually to a corporate member in good standing who has at the minimum five years of continuous involvement with the College and has supported CCHL activities and programs in a tangible manner. In addition, the successful nominee has provided advice on ways and means to enhance the College’s corporate membership program and assistance to the College in the achievement of its objectives.

This award is part of our CCHL National Awards Program. and will be presented at the virtual Honouring Health Leadership event on June 16, 2021.
