2010 Bachelor of Health Studies (BHS) (Health Management)
Project Manager at Cancer Care Ontario
Within four months after graduating from York University’s Health Management program in 2010, Jennifer Catton started as a Business Analyst with the Department of Medical Imaging, which spans University Health Network, Mount Sinai Hospital and Women’s College Hospital. She was part of a team that applied Lean Six-Sigma methodology to reduce patient wait times at MRI departments, ultimately saving $2.5 million each year by increasing patient capacity with existing resources. She later moved on to a position within the same department as a Senior Analyst where she was responsible for developing the department’s strategic plan.
Today she is a Project Manager with the Cancer Screening program at Cancer Care Ontario where she leads projects to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of operational processes, as well as leading initiatives to advance Ontario’s cancer screening programs towards person-centered care.
“I continue to use the foundational knowledge and skills I learned in the health management program at York University” says Jennifer. “Each professor brought the course material to life through expertise and a passion for the subject matter. They not only gave me the skills and tools I needed to succeed but also instilled within me a strong motivation to make a difference.”
