Most recently, Boynton managed evening, night and weekend nursing teams and nursing triage support services for patients and caregivers. Previously, she was a staff nurse at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers.
“Care Dimensions is a 24-hour support organization, so I have filled very important roles supporting both patients and staff,” Boynton said. “Our clinical teams want to make sure every patient is cared for, day and night, and answer any concerns and questions families may have. This is the kind of nursing I have always wanted to do: continuous care and support in a patient-centered organization.”
