Please join us in welcoming Joanne Jury as the new Health Care Navigation Lead of the Kawartha Lakes Ontario Health Team.
Joanne is joining us on September 14th as Health Care Navigation Lead for the Kawartha Lakes OHT. She will assist the OHT in developing 24/7 patient navigation services for the community of Kawartha Lakes, which will help both patients and providers to navigate our healthcare system more effectively.
Joanne brings a diverse background in health care for over 30 years. She has experience in both rural and urban hospitals as a front-line emergency nurse and then transitioning into Patient Flow Specialist and management roles. She has also held leadership roles in the community with Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) and worked on a Ministry of Health Pilot project that brought health care to unattached patients in the Peterborough and City of Kawartha Lakes area.
Joanne understands the challenges and barriers that exist in the current system and as a result she brings a passion for seeking solutions to enhance patient care and create seamless transitions for patients and families within the health care system.
We are excited to have Joanne join us at the KL-OHT!
