Congratulations to Vasiliki (Bessy) Bitzas, who on February 25 became Associate Director of Nursing. With more than 20 years of management experience at the Jewish General Hospital and our CIUSSS, Ms. Bitzas most recently held the position of Clinical-Administrative Coordinator of the Division of Geriatrics, Palliative Care, Family Medicine and of the Nursing Resource Centre.
Ms. Bitzas has a doctorate from McGill University, and distinguishes herself as a leader in the field of nursing, and in strength-based health care. She has demonstrated her ability to deftly lead her teams during periods of uncertainty and change. She has, over the years, forged strong partnerships both within the JGH and with external institutions. Her breadth of experience, along with her management competencies and academic credentials will further strengthen the Nursing team as it adapts during changing times.
