Loretto has hired registered nurse Kate Conan as senior outreach coordinator.
Formerly an outreach coordinator for Loretto, Conan was rehired in 2021 to head a new admissions program to assist families in finding the right level of service where and when they need it.
Conan, a Skaneateles resident, studied business at Syracuse University and Niagara University before receiving her associate degree in applied science in nursing from Cayuga Community College to become a registered nurse.
Conan brings years of diverse experience to Loretto. She previously worked at Crouse Hospital, where she received clinical training in the neonatal intensive care unit. In addition to clinical experience, she brings business insight to her new role, with previous experience selling enzymatic wound ointments for Knoll pharmaceutical as an RN and sales representative.
As senior outreach coordinator, Conan will work closely with referral sources, hospitals, outside agencies, providers and families to help identify individuals in need of services – and work collaboratively to direct them to the most appropriate facilities and level of care.
“I look forward to assisting families and residents as they navigate through the health care system and transition into Loretto’s facilities with different levels of care and services — ensuring the process is seamless for them.”
