Emma Jones, MD, joins Care Dimensions as hospice and palliative care physician
Care Dimensions welcomes Emma Jones, MD, to its hospice and palliative care physician team. She leads the pediatric interdisciplinary team as well as a home-care team serving Greater Boston.
Since 2016, she has been under contract with Care Dimensions as the medical director for the pediatric hospice team. Prior to joining Care Dimensions as a staff physician, she was a senior physician in Pediatric Palliative Care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital, providing inpatient consultation and outpatient follow up for children with a wide range of serious illnesses.
Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine, Dr. Jones completed a fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Center for Palliative Care. She received both her medical and bachelor’s degrees from Louisiana State University Health Science Center. After completing fellowships at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Dr. Jones cared for patients with childhood cancer and blood disorders at the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center, in Baton Rouge, La.
“I have worked for many years with Care Dimensions, as both a referring physician and most recently as a contracted physician, because I have admired Care Dimensions for their work with their patients and for their comprehensive pediatric hospice and palliative care program. I’m excited to work closer with this excellent team of clinicians and to extend my expertise to adult hospice patients at home.”
“Dr. Jones’s impressive focus and solid experience make her the ideal fit for Care Dimensions,” said Dr. Kristen Schaefer, Care Dimensions medical director for the Greater Boston service area and at the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln. “We welcome her to the Care Dimensions team.”
