Niagara's smaller hospitals have a new head honcho.

Niagara Health System announced Monday registered nurse Kim Stephens-Woods has been appointed vice-president of patient services responsible for Port Colborne, Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the-Lake hospitals.

Stephens-Woods, who recently worked as director of clinical services for St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, will also be responsible for the perioperative care of patients undergoing surgery, endoscopy and other services, as well as the health system's complex and long-term care programs.

In a media release, Sue Matthews, the health system's interim chief executive officer and president, said the NHS is "privileged to have Kim join us in Niagara."

"She has extensive experience in health care and brings with her a wealth of knowledge. When people meet her, they immediately comment on how her personality makes them feel so at ease. She is very personable and caring, and I know she will be warmly welcomed in her new role."

Stephens-Woods said the people she's met at Niagara hospitals are clearly "passionate about health care in Niagara," and she's looking forward to the opportunity "to enhance the patient-care experience."
