The board of directors of PACE of the Southern Piedmont has named Renee Rizzuti the center’s new president and CEO. Rizzuti was formerly the organization’s executive director.

Rizzuti is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and has a Master’s Degree in Health Administration (MHA) from UNC-Chapel Hill. She is a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA) and a Fellow of the Advisory Board Company of Healthcare Executives (FABC). She serves on the Executive Board Committee for NC PACE Association and Public Policy Committee for National PACE Association. Before joining PACE of the Southern Piedmont, in 2015, she was a Vice President in the Post Acute Care Division of Carolinas HealthCare System (now Atrium Health), where she served for 12 years.
