The board and staff at Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions are deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Cy Frank, who died suddenly on March 5, 2015. We extend our deepest condolences to Cy’s family and his colleagues in Alberta and across the country.

Cy was a true leader in every sense of the word in that his mission was to serve others. He did this in so many ways: as a surgeon who healed, a renowned researcher who made discoveries and moved them into therapies and tools to improve people’s lives, as a brilliant visionary who saw a clear path towards a transformed health system, and as our President and CEO, whom we knew as an inspiring, empathetic and wise leader.

*************
