A Resource to Help Patients Navigate the Healthcare System



Patient Resource NavigatorAs part of its continued commitment to patient-centered care, Westerly Hospital offers a resource to help patients navigate the healthcare system.

Jen Algiere, Westerly Hospital’s Patient Resource Navigator, assists patients in a variety of ways, serving as the primary point of contact for information on hospital services, programs, and providers.

“Jen helps to ensure that our patients and families feel comfortable and guided in their healthcare journey,” says Kerin DaCruz, chief administrative officer for Westerly Hospital. “Patients and their families often feel alone and confused in the unfamiliar world of healthcare. Jen provides guidance and reassurance.”

“Every day, I try to help not only our patients, but every person, and every family, to guide them in obtaining the resources, providers or services they are looking for.”

Jen can be reached at her office at 401.348.3798 or via email at jalgiere@westerlyhospital.org.
