Announcement: Central Zone Associate Chief Medical Information Officer, Dr. Aaron Pink

Dr. Aaron Pink, ACMIO, Central Zone
Last November, we announced the retirement of our ACMIO for the Central Zone, Dr. Steven Turner. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Aaron Pink has joined the CMIO team as the new ACMIO for the Central Zone.

Aaron is an OB/GYN, practicing at the Red Deer Regional Hospital as well as in Stettler and Olds. Previously serving the community in Nova Scotia, an enriching rotation in Red Deer during Aaron’s residency at the University of Calgary (completed in 2016) made a lasting impression on him. Since returning to Alberta, his tenure in Red Deer has allowed him to engage in rewarding clinical work as well as several key administrative roles, including Clinical Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology for the Central Zone, Medical Informatics Lead for Women's Health in the Central Zone, and Surgical Access Improvement Lead for the Central Zone.

Outside the professional sphere, Aaron enjoys having adventures with his wife and two children, and playing board games, video games, and Dungeons and Dragons. He’s also a passionate fan of science fiction and fantasy films and TV shows.

As he moves into the ACMIO role, Aaron is particularly excited about the opportunity to use technology such as Connect Care to streamline processes, improve efficiency, and facilitate smoother transitions to new systems. By reducing stress and mitigating the risk of physician burnout, he hopes to contribute to significant improvements that will benefit all healthcare professionals.

Please join us in welcoming Aaron to our team!
