As the first faces many patients see, Wendy Jones and Jessika Edgar approach their roles as unit clerks at Mission Memorial Hospital (MMH) with a warm welcoming presence and a can-do attitude.
Wendy has been working in health care for 34 years helping to ensure the smooth operation of Mission Memorial Hospital. She has held various roles and seen many transformations. “MEDITECH Expanse is bound to improve patient care and safety,” says Wendy. “It’s a lot to learn but I am confident we will succeed.”
Partnership is key
While Wendy boasts many accomplishments in her long-standing career, one of her most fulfilling is her role as a mentor to the many students she has been privileged to lead… students like Jessika.
“When Jessika arrived 11 years ago, I knew she was special,” says Wendy. Working in various Fraser Health hospitals Jessika has returned to the place she started her career. “Wendy’s training during my student placement provided me with a solid foundation for my career,” says Jessika. “
It’s great to be on this new journey with MEDITECH Expanse with her by my side.”
