Marianne Raimondo is an assistant professor and the director of the Health Care Administration program at Rhode Island College. She also serves as the executive director of the Institute for Education in Healthcare at RIC. For the past three years she has led the initiative to build an Age­Friendly Rhode Island. This work began with research on the needs of older adults in Rhode Island and the identification of gaps in community­ based services. It then led to the formation of a statewide coalition to pursue age ­friendly initiatives and propose policy to support older adults in their home and community as they age.

She is also the principal investigator on a RealJobs Rhode Island grant which is focused on building the healthcare workforce in Rhode Island. She is a fellow of the college’s Center for Addiction and Behavioral Health Studies, where she is involved in applied research to support care delivery and the improvement of behavioral health care systems in Rhode Island.

Prior to her academic position at RIC, she was a management consultant for healthcare organizations throughout the country, providing education and consultation in quality management, systems redesign, leadership development, and patient satisfaction. She was a vice president at Applied Management Systems in Burlington, MA. Prior to that, she was a senior vice president at the Hospital Association of R.I. She was an adjunct professor at the Boston University School of Public Health and in the Providence College Health Policy and Management and Social Work program.

She holds a M.S. in Epidemiology/Biostatistics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, a Ph.D. in Public Health from the University Massachusetts, Amherst and a M.S.W. from Rhode Island College. Marianne is also a licensed clinical social worker.
