“How Social Workers Can Impact Readmissions.” An in depth interview with SSWLHC Past President, June Simmons
About June Simmons:
June Simmons, President and CEO, has enjoyed a long career as a health care executive in hospital and home health settings. Since founding Partners in Care in 1997, June has pioneered the development and scaling of evidence-based innovative interventions for management of medications at home, self-management of chronic conditions, coordinated care to improve health outcomes, and care transitions.
Throughout her distinguished career, she has been instrumental in envisioning, creating, funding, and operating forward-looking health and social service programs that meet the mutual needs of patient populations, health care delivery networks and health plans. Her priority is sustainable patient-driven integration of care across settings, from primary care and hospital to home and community in the 21st century.
Partners continues to serve as a catalyst for shaping a new vision of health care by partnering with organizations, families, and community leaders in the work of changing health care systems, communities and lives. Partners in Care is now building prototype regional community delivery systems for the new health environment, developing strong partnerships between medicine, home and community based services and those who draw on the health and community systems of care. Partners also works to scale these innovations through shared learning systems at the national level.
