Winchester - November 29, 2011 - Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) is leading the way in rural health and education, and recently two members of the WDMH team " Lynn Hall and Joanne Leclair - were recognized for their expertise.

As part of Patient Safety Week in November, Lynn Hall, Senior Vice President of Clinical Services, was featured on the Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s first virtual webcast. She fielded questions from delegates as far away as Germany and Saudi Arabia regarding WDMH’s excellent processes for ensuring that the medication each patient is taking is carefully monitored. WDMH’s successful medication reconciliation process has resulted in improved safety and decreased readmission and length of stay rates for patients.

“WDMH is pleased to share its expertise with health care colleagues provincially, nationally and even internationally,” notes Cholly Boland, CEO. “We have an excellent team with expert knowledge.”

Congratulations as well to pharmacy manager Joanne Leclair who recently received the Canadian Association of Pharmacy in Oncology (CAPHO) Merit Award. Joanne’s initiatives and leadership have helped develop the future of the profession. Her dedication to safe medication practice and risk reduction has helped improve the oncology practice in the rural setting.

“Joanne is to be commended,” says Lynn Hall, Senior Vice President of Clinical Services. “Joanne is an enthusiastic role model and is very deserving of this merit award. WDMH is proud and pleased to have Joanne as part of our leadership team.”
