Gemma Rogers

Chief Operating Officer

As Chief Operating Officer of START Treatment and Recovery Centers, Ms. Rogers’ vision is to ensure every member of the START clinical and operations teams is able to deliver his or her work – and in turn, START’s mission - as effectively as possible and to the best of his or her ability.

After obtaining a degree in Business Management, Ms. Rogers spent more than a decade in management consulting where she helped clients ranging from FTSE 100 companies to non-profits and government departments to deliver complex projects and improve their organizational effectiveness.

Following a passion for mission-driven work, Ms. Rogers then joined the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), a non-profit which provides community-based home healthcare and managed care services. She helped lead VNSNY through a period of significant turnaround and transformation, first as Vice President, IT Governance and Service Delivery and then as Vice President, Operations for VNSNY CHOICE Health Plans.

Ms. Rogers oversees START’s clinical and operations functions, providing the leadership, management and strategic direction needed to deliver high quality addiction treatment, primary care and mental health services to START’s patients and clients.
