Two Staff Members Join JHF
In July and August, the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) welcomes two staff members.
JHF welcomes back Maureen Saxon-Gioia, MSHSA, BSN, RN, as a project manager/nurse senior quality improvement specialist for JHF and its supporting organizations. Ms. Saxon-Gioia previously worked at JHF from 2007 to 2014, and she will serve as project manager for the Teaching Nursing Home Initiative. Her role has a primary focus in aging and long-term care, supporting workforce training and education initiatives related to improving healthcare quality, patient safety, and workforce development. This builds upon her involvement in previous quality improvement initiatives, in which she conducted in-depth assessments and evaluations, participated in organizational redesigns, and executed teaching and coaching engagements using lean methodology for healthcare organizational transformation. Her career spans many years as a point-of-care nurse in both neuro intensive care and high-risk labor and delivery in an academic medical center. Ms. Saxon-Gioia also brings recent experience in post-acute care for patients receiving home health services. She led compliance and quality improvement activities to promote value-based care and professional nursing development through evidence-based care initiatives. She earned her bachelor's in nursing from Pennsylvania State University and her master's in health services administration from Robert Morris University.
Bridget Jordan is the administrative coordinator for JHF. She has over eight years' experience in operations and customer service. Shortly after relocating to Pittsburgh from Columbus, OH, she accepted a position as operations manager at The Candle Lab. Using her abilities in management and organization, she played a pivotal role in growing this unique business concept into a successful and established business.
