2011 TWIN Honoree Spotlight

29 Aug

The YWCA’s Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) event honors women who have made significant contributions to their fields, and recognizes those organizations that support such achievements. 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of TWIN. Leading up to this year’s September 15th event, we will highlight each of our 25 incredible TWIN Honorees. If you would like more information about the TWIN event, or would like to reserve a ticket, please visitwww.ywcaofasheville.org.

Joanne Ford, CarePartners Health Services

Joanne is director of the John F. Keever Solace Center, an inpatient hospice facility which helps patients and their families make the transformation through their end-of life journey. She is tirelessly devoted to the patients, her staff and to their mission. Joanne’s primary intention has been to assure that all systems allow the clinical staff to spend the majority of their time with patients and families. She has created a climate where constant communication with her staff and with the patients has given everyone a valued voice.  Joanne continually keeps the patient’s desires as the center of focus, insisting that her staff supports their decisions. Her kindness, wisdom and leadership transform in the lives of her staff, and certainly of the patients and families they serve.
