Dr. Nichols brings vital experience from the Antelope Valley health systems into the ScaleLA network

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Today ScaleLA formally announced the addition of Dr. Colette Nichols to their advisory board. Dr. Nichols most recently served as the COO and CFO of the Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, CA and the founder of The Empower Foundation, an organization dedicated to ending homelessness, supporting vulnerable children, and improving health.

Dr. Colette Nichols was honored to be included in the advisory committee and stated, "I'm looking forward to seeing the great triumphs that are in store for these healthcare startups at ScaleLA.  It's the honor of my life to be working to bring major financial growth to these fledgling ideas that will soon become respected businesses in the healthcare world, and looked to for leadership. I'm anxious to bring my experience and passion to begin the actions that ignite an economic growth for each one. Great things come from the heart of a great team - from our experience, our wisdom, and our belief in the principles and values that guide us. And, when I look back ten years from now, I will know we were successful when we can say that together we created a world of healthcare that is more prosperous, more accessible to everyone, more secure, and making more of a positive difference than it did when we began this journey."
