On January 1, 2024 Corinne Rowswell became the Interim Chief Executive Officer for Health PEI. Corinne had been the Chief Operating Officer for Health PEI since May 2021.

Rowswell is a registered nurse with over 35 years of health care experience. She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and a Master’s in Public Administration. She has worked as a front-line nurse in acute care, home care, palliative care and public health in Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec, and Ontario. Throughout her career she has worked with patients, families, health care providers and community programs towards safe and supportive transitions in care, particularly from acute care settings to home based care. 

Rowswell credits working with people and their families, particularly at their most vulnerable time of life, as fundamentally shaping how she practiced nursing in a collaborative inter- disciplinary team and working towards patient-centred care. 

In 2018, Rowswell transitioned to working with the broader Health and Wellness team, leading key strategic initiatives and played a leadership role in the COVID-19 response before returning to operations with Health PEI in 2021.
