JoAnn Kemist Recognized for Leadership in Healthcare by Pathways Hospice

Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) November 05, 2014

Hospital and community leader, JoAnn Kemist was honored with the inaugural Pathways Award for Leadership in Healthcare at the home health and hospice agency’s 24th Annual One from the Heart Awards Breakfast held on October 9, 2014. Over 500 health industry professionals and community supporters of hospice care gathered to applaud Kemist for her leadership and donation of countless hours of volunteer service in support of Pathways.

Recently retired as President of the Sequoia Hospital Foundation and Vice President of Development and Community Relations, Kemist has been a member of all three Pathways Boards, serving as President of the Home Health & Hospice Board and Vice President of the Pathways Private Duty Board. Kemist was instrumental in assisting Pathways Home Health & Hospice as it expanded its care programs and geographic service area, while continuously improving quality, and the patient and family experience. Kemist generously shared her considerable knowledge about community health and supported Pathways’ mission of providing compassionate family-centered care to patients and their families when they need help the most.

“We are extremely grateful to JoAnn for her long-tenure on our boards as well as the extra guidance she has provided through the years,” said Sandra Coolidge, Vice President of Admissions, Public Relations, and Philanthropy at Pathways. “She thoroughly understands how the patient and family experience in the hospital translates to home health and hospice care in their private residences. We are now able to provide this type of care for over 1,000 patients a day in the Bay Area as they recover from a hospital stay, learn to manage a chronic condition, or prepare as a family to face a terminal illness.”

Pathways now serves over 5,000 families a year in San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo and Contra Costa counties.
