Patients and staff make up the Patient Partnership Council. Our patient members bring a unique view about what it is like to live with a heart condition and receive care at the UOHI.
The UOHI Patient Partnership Council (UPP) is co-chaired by Mr. Jean Bilodeau and Ms. Bonnie Bowes.
Mr. Bilodeau has been a UOHI patient for over 30 years. In 2010, he decided to give back to the institute by becoming the Board President of the UOHI Patient Alumni.
Ms. Bowes has worked at the UOHI since 2001 as both a nurse and nurse educator before becoming the Director of Quality, Risk & Privacy.
Other council members include:
- A Social Worker;
- A Clinical Manager;
- UOHI Patient Relations staff;
- A former UOHI nurse;
- Three patients.
