Marcee Chmait has served in multiple rolls within the healthcare industry for nearly 30 years.  Her passion is to innovate, incubate and develop new businesses and to grow them into meaningful businesses.  Marcee has spent her career at the brink of healthcare innovation, identifying opportunities to merge direct relationships between consumer and provider before consumer-centered healthcare was even a strategy.

In January 2018, Marcee joined Providence St. Joseph Health to lead commercialization for the Digital Strategy and Innovation Group.  In this role, Marcee is working to bring consumer-facing technology solutions to health systems to improve the consumer experience within health systems.  Prior to Providence, Marcee led innovation at SCAN Health Plan, a Medicare Advantage health plan in southern California.

In April 2013, Marcee joined Cambia Health Solutions as President of SpendWell.  SpendWell’s mission is to transform the U.S. health system by introducing a simple way for people to shop, pay and receive health care services at a fair market price while simplifying health care payments to providers.  SpendWell was a cornerstone business to the broader retail enablement pillar at Cambia.

Marcee is a serial entrepreneur.  SpendWell is her third startup company.  eBenx and HealthAllies had successful exits as one went public and their other was acquired by UnitedHealthcare. Marcee is a graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Marketing Communications.
