She is responsible for the patient experience office, risk management processes including management of patient safety incidents and medicolegal claims, emergency preparedness, corporate policies, legislative compliance management and the NYGH Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program. One of Renee’s many innovations is the establishment of the corporate critical incident process committee to review potentially critical incidents through an interprofessional lens, ensuring effective follow up management of such incidents. Renee has a Master of Nursing from the University of Toronto, a Masters Certificate in Risk Management and Business Performance from the Schulich School of Business and has more than thirteen years’ experience in the field of risk management.
