A pioneer in patient advocacy is coming “full circle” back to AU Medical Center to take a leadership position to increase patient outcomes and engagement.
Julie Ginn Moretz, who is currently associate vice chancellor for patient- and family-centered care at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, will be returning to Augusta in May to become assistant vice president for patient experience. She began her career there in the 1990s after helping the hospital understand the needs of patients and families like hers who were dealing with a very sick child.
“I always say they couldn’t get rid of me so they hired me,” Moretz joked. “This is certainly where I got my first passion for patient- and family-centered care. It just seems fitting to bring my career full circle.”
