PHC Appoints New Nursing VP
“We are all very pleased that Julia has agreed to step into this position here at Peninsula,” said Todd Miller, CEO. “She has the credentials, the experience and the history with the Hospital which will prove crucial for this challenging role.”
LaFleur holds a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the City College of New York and a master’s in Public Administration/Health Administration from Long Island University. She is also a 2007 Fellow from the Leadership Institute for Black Nurses at New York University. Her tenure as the Director of Nursing has included Kings County Hospital Center, Interfaith Medical Center and New Island Hospital. LaFleur is very familiar with the Hospital Center’s nursing staff and nursing department, having served in the role of weekend Administrative Nurse on Duty (ADN) at PHC for more than six years. She has been able to make a very smooth transition to the top nursing leadership spot.
“This is an exciting time at Peninsula Hospital Center,” said LaFleur. “There are excellent, highly qualified nurses in the hospital and it is my goal to empower them to be even better professionals. We are on the cusp of bringing innovative technology and service to the Far Rockaway communities and I am pleased to have the opportunity to play a role in this transition.”
