Fellow Spotlight: Rosalee Allan, FACHE
Rosalee Allan is a current American College of Healthcare Executives Fellow and currently serves as the Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at the Pathology Associates Medical Laboratories (PAML) in Spokane, Washington. Rosalee was born and raised in Spokane where she has spent her entire career.

After graduating from Whitworth University with a degree in Healthcare Financial Management, Ms. Allan began her career working in finance departments of different health-related organizations. Thereafter, she transitioned to a leadership role in human resources at PAML. As human resources director, her scope of responsibility went from overseeing a human resources department for 80 employees, to building a human resources department managing all aspects of HR operations, including compensation, recruitment, affirmative action, employee relations, payroll, reporting, and strategic support for more than 1,400 employees.

Ms. Allan also holds two HR Certifications: PHR and CP-SHRM. In her current position as the Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at PAML, she is accountable for the service and financial performance of the organization. Her executive responsibilities have also included facilitation of the organization's strategic planning process and progress against the identified goals. Over the past several years, her direct reports have helped to develop and implement unique tools and solutions to manage and monitor PAML’s pre- and post-analytical laboratory processes.  

PAML’s outreach expertise is one of the key service-focused strategies in their hospital joint venture business model. Ms. Allan works closely with hospitals to form partnerships, and explains that it is vital for the leadership in these partner hospitals to recognize that a leader at PAML has the same credentials as they do and understands their organizations, goals, and challenges. She is currently coordinating joint hospital ventures in Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, California, and Kentucky, where the general managers of those organizations report directly to her.

Ms. Allan also serves on the boards of several organizations, including the Washington State Patient Safety Coalition, the National Sunquest Reference Lab Advisory Board and the Advisory Board of Eastern Washington University’s College of Health Sciences and Public Health.
