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.
