New Director of Strategy and Clinical Program Development hired
In her new role at BWFH, Burgoon will be helping individual departments and service lines orchestrate program development, working to elevate current programs, and develop new ones. She will also work to align BWFH's strategic plan with that of Brigham and Women's Hospital to ensure the two institution’s mission and vision are in sync.
"For example," Burgoon explains, "the hospital's Infusion Center has already undergone program changes and is experiencing growth. I will be working to help them coordinate and prioritize work in their next level of development."
Upcoming goals for Burgoon include spearheading the growth and development of other programs at BWFH, including the Pain Management Center, the inpatient orthopedic unit, and overseeing the planning for Brigham and Women’s Orthopedic and Spine Center at BWFH, which is scheduled to open this summer.
Burgoon says she was drawn to her new role at BWFH because she came out of a community hospital setting in her last position. "I see community hospitals such as BWFH as an excellent way to maintain cost containment of care," she explains, "They are such a huge value in terms of providing great patient care for the many needs of the community. I also find the environment here at BWFH very helpful and welcoming."
When not working, Burgoon is involved with music: singing in two local choirs, and volunteering at the Center for the Arts in Natick, and with the program Rock Off Main Street, which showcases up and coming high school rock bands. Burgoon also enjoys gardening and travelling in her spare time.
