After 20 years of caring for families at Pueblo Community Health Center, Dr. Rona Knudsen embraces her role as InnovAge PACE’s Center Medical Director, helping vulnerable older adults in the community. <br />
This country’s older adults need PACE now more than ever. InnovAge is a great business made up of great people and to be here is incredibly inspiring and a tremendous privilege.
It’s a privilege to help older adults age in the place of their choosing with the support of outstanding patient care and by removing a huge financial burden. For some seniors, that means no longer having to choose between medical care and their next meal, paying their bills, or having a place to live. I’m proud to be part an organization that helps seniors focus on living happier, more independent lives.
Christine (Chris) Bent
As a second-generation healthcare executive, I have a passion for wellbeing and serving others. With my own lived experience caregiving for my mom in her final years, I know how important it is for individuals to age with dignity and on their terms. My mom would have loved to have the opportunity to live at home and be part of a program like PACE. It is an honor to be on the forefront of bringing this unique program to more seniors throughout the country.
Our seniors deserve the best possible care so that they can be independent and live life on their own terms. I am passionate about PACE and want to ensure that InnovAge provides responsible patient care and clinical excellence for all participants.

As a family member, a primary care physician, and a healthcare leader, I’ve experienced the many challenges associated with aging. PACE provides a much-needed solution, and I’m passionate about bringing the program to more seniors who can benefit from its patient-centric approach to care.

My grandparents moved into my family’s home when they could no longer care for themselves. At a young age, I gained a real appreciation for their desire to stay with family and maintain their independence. I consider it a privilege to work for a company dedicated to keeping seniors healthy, independent, and in their homes with their loved ones.
Our seniors deserve the best possible care and I am privileged to support our medical, operations, and compliance teams, as well as our executive leaders and the board of directors, to successfully deliver that care through the PACE model.
InnovAge’s mission of supporting seniors through the PACE model of care is energizing and deeply resonates with me. It is a pleasure to work with such talented and passionate healthcare leaders bringing this form of all-inclusive care to more seniors.
Aging in place requires high-quality, well-navigated healthcare. I’m passionate about using technology and innovation to advance patient-centered healthcare and I'm excited to be part of InnovAge's journey in advancing the PACE model nationally to make it more widely available to older adults and those that love them.
I am honored to lead the team championing our mission to help older adults receive care on their terms while providing a strong sense of security to their families. InnovAge and the PACE model of care are the perfect solution for seniors and their caregivers who want to continue living independently and remain in the homes where they built an entire lifetime of memories
PACE sits at the intersection of two critical themes in healthcare: the shift to value-based care and the ability to keep frail seniors in the home. I’m thrilled to be part of InnovAge’s efforts to expand access to this innovative care model that enables older adults to age safely in place.
When thinking about PACE, I think of my family. PACE is focused on helping seniors live independently, thus allowing families to be together with less stress of coordinating medical care. I am happy to be a part of InnovAge in hopes of making a difference for seniors and family unity.
My 95 year old grandmother is a primary role model for me. She is the very definition of discipline, elegance, and grace. Despite her self-sufficiency, there is a reality to her age. When the need arises, I want her care to mirror the quality and character of the life she’s lived. I am proud to work at InnovAge to build the best healthcare solution our most senior generation deserves.
