What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Yvonne has been a Nurse Practitioner over 9 years working first for a medical doctor seeing all his nursing home members and providing care for them. She came to work of a medicare advantage company about 7 years ago and filled the roll of a field nurse carrying a panel of patients she was responsible for, and providing weekly visits. She joined Alignment Healthcare in a management roll in 2017. She trains and oversees a group of Advance Practice Clinicians in how to assess, and diagnose seniors health needs.
Why should this person be nominated
Yvonne is very focused on her work and on our mission to give every senior, wherever they live, the highest quality medical care available. Her compassion shines through when she sits with a patient and family to discuss end of life and what their wishes are.
She is tireless in her work, often volunteering to see member's on the weekends if their families cannot make a week day appointment. She truly does "sacred work" every day of the week.
