According to Raina Sanford, MBA, CRA, RT (R)(M), RDMS, RVT, director of Radiology at Gordon Hospital, Ward previously worked as the breast cancer nurse navigator at the hospital.

“Jennifer’s vast knowledge of the department, coupled with her experience, will make this an easy transition for her,” Sanford explains. “We are very happy that she accepted this new role. Her compassionate personality will make her a wonderful asset to our state-of-the-art cardiac cath lab//interventional radiology suite.”

“I am excited about my new role here at Gordon Hospital,” Ward says. “I truly enjoyed my tenure as the breast cancer nurse navigator, but I’m also excited about this new opportunity to help our patients as they undergo diagnostic cardiac catheterizations and other interventional radiology procedures in our cath lab.”
