Dr. Jason Hartman
VP of Operations
Jason Hartman has held many roles in True North Imaging since 2006. His responsibilities were initially directed to marketing and business development. He was Director of Operations, before being named VP Operations in February 2016.
Dr. Hartman obtained his MD from the University of Ottawa. He obtained his CCFP from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM – Thunder Bay). Spending years training to be a physician allowed him to better appreciate the needs of the healthcare community, both as a clinician and a patient. Dr. Hartman applies these lessons in directing the growth of True North Imaging.
Jason’s sole interest is True North Imaging. Sooner or later that will have to change.
