Ms. Corinne Wong, Chair of the Board of Directors of Yee Hong Centre, extended a warm welcome to Ms. Jones at a press conference jointly hosted with Dr Joseph Wong, Founder and Chair of Yee Hong Community Wellness Foundation, and Mr Stephen Siu, President of the Foundation.

Ms. Jones was most recently President of Preferred Health Care Services, an organization known for its nursing and personal support services in the community and long-term-care facilities.  She will join Yee Hong Centre on April 12, 2018, to fill the CEO position which has been vacant since last November.

“Yee Hong Centre’s Board of Directors is delighted that Ms. Jones will be joining the Centre as its next CEO,” said Ms. Wong.  “Ms. Jones has spent the last 15 years in Ontario’s healthcare system, helping to grow a client base and annual revenues and improving organizational performance. She has transformed business processes and launched new product offerings. Her leadership includes mobilizing hundreds of professionals, resulting in recognition as a Top Three Provider.”

“Given Yee Hong’s strategic plan to broaden our services to meet the emerging needs of our seniors; to improve client experience across all programs; and to maintain financial sustainability, I am very pleased that she has agreed to take the helm at Yee Hong” said Ms. Wong.

Dr Joseph Wong added that it is fortunate that Yee Hong could have such a highly qualified entrepreneurial and results-driven health care executive to join its professional management team during this critical time of expansion.

“As a caring community, Yee Hong is developing the first residential hospice in Scarborough. When the project is completed in 2019, it will also be the first hospice in Canada’s Chinese community,” he said. “To cope with the Ontario Government’s Aging with Confidence – Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors, Yee Hong’s services and facilities will be further expanded in the years to come.”

Ms. Jones is currently on the board of Kerry’s Place Autism Services and a Quality Assurance Committee member at Surrey Place Centre.
