Rockwood comes from Kaiser Permanente in Denver, where she has served as executive director since 2015. Prior to coming to Colorado, she served as the chief operating officer at Kaiser South Bay Medical Center in California from 2011 to 2015 and assistant medical center administrator starting in 2007.
