I am pleased to welcome Johanne Boileau as Director of Nursing for the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS West-Central Montreal).

In this new role, Ms. Boileau will be responsible for the delivery of high quality, safe nursing care throughout the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. As a member of the Clinical Coordination Committee, her focus will be on improving patient trajectories through their care, as well as improving patient outcomes.

Most recently, Ms. Boileau was Director of Nursing and Clinical Operations at the Jewish General Hospital (JGH). Prior to assuming that position in 2012, she built her career at the JGH, and was named Associate Nursing Director of Cardiology and Critical Care in 2006. In addition to her work in the hospital setting, she is also a faculty lecturer at McGill University’s Ingram School of Nursing.

Ms. Boileau holds Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Nursing from the University of Montreal.

“I look forward to playing an instrumental role in the delivery of safe, high quality care across our CIUSSS West-Central Montreal,” says Ms. Boileau. “I believe that strong partnerships between physicians, nurses and our multidisciplinary teams bring great benefits and continuous improvement to the patient experience.”

Together with Ms. Boileau, the rest of the management team, and in partnership with all of the institutions in our network, I am eager to embark on this new era in health care. Through her nursing leadership, she has shown her commitment to improving the accessibility and quality of care for our patients and their loved ones. I am confident that she will extend her vision throughout our new network of care.

I am pleased to welcome Marie-Hélène Carbonneau as Associate Director of Nursing for the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS West-Central Montreal).

Ms. Carbonneau is one of two Associate Directors of Nursing, both of whom are responsible for nursing operations and patient trajectories throughout the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. In striving toward excellence and to maximize efficiency, she will ensure the optimization of trajectories of care throughout the different CIUSSS West-Central Montreal institutions.

Ms. Carbonneau will support Johanne Boileau, Director of Nursing, in the day-to-day management of department operations and in the integration of the nursing mission in various programs, services and facilities of our institutions. She will participate in the development, evaluation and revision of clinical patient trajectories across the various facilities in our CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. Ms. Carbonneau will also contribute to the management of improvement programs for quality of care and clinical services. Moreover, she will ensure the evolution of cross-clinical practice, whether it be the quality and development of practice, Accreditation, interdisciplinary collaboration and the patient experience, in collaboration with other departments.

From 1991 until 2000, Ms. Carbonneau worked at the Jewish General Hospital as Head Nurse of the Coronary Care Unit and cardiology. Then from 2000 until 2006, she was promoted to Associate Nursing Director for cardiology and critical care. Since that time, she has been the Director of Nursing at the Montreal Heart Institute, where she contributed to projects aimed at optimizing the continuum of care and improving access. Ms. Carbonneau also led the medical clientele program at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, which looked at enhancing efficiency and performance in ambulatory services in collaboration with frontline staff working in the area of chronic illness.

Ms. Carbonneau has a Bachelor’s degree of science in nursing and a Master’s degree in health sciences from McGill University.

“My experience has given me insight into the extent of patient needs and the range of services offered to the population in the hospital as well as in the community,” says Ms. Carbonneau. “With the implementation of our CIUSSS, I’m taking advantage of the opportunity we are being given to work together in identifying and adapting our integrated care and services in order to facilitate access and respond to those needs. I have the privilege of being a part of this transformation in our healthcare system with dynamic teams, all focused on quality, in a stimulating environment so we can re-imagine the way the best care to our patients.”

Together with Ms. Carbonneau, the rest of the management team, and in partnership with all of the institutions in our network, I am eager to embark on this new era in health care. Given our focus on offering patients and their families an exceptional experience in our care, Ms. Carbonneau will be able to draw from her previous work and begin finding opportunities to improve patient trajectories and access to care across our CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.
