Director Health Facilities Space and Equipment Planning
Fraser Health Facilities Management
Fraser Health Authority
Surrey, BC Canada
Cathy’s equipment planning team works with the critical care network (CCN) across the region to bring oversight and organization to the borrowing, procuring and placement of additional equipment across the Health Authority as they continue to develop and roll out their pandemic plan.
This work helps account for equipment costs associated with the pandemic and ensures that same equipment gets back to its rightful owner once it is no longer needed. Alongside a clinical facilities planner, Cathy works with clinical teams at the CCN to ensure that the repurposed treatment spaces on units are safe, and that the various sites are all coordinating with each other.
She has worked to ensure that there is an adequate chain of command, and that it is communicated effectively. To that end daily check-ins with—and communication out to—teams, is vital.
