Lake Sunapee VNA Welcomes New Hospice & Palliative Care Director
Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice is pleased to welcome Diane Brace, MSN, RN, as its new Hospice & Palliative Care Director. A native of New Hampshire, Diane has more than 25 years of nursing experience with hospitals in the southern part of the state. She has worked in varied specialties from acute care (including med surg, cardiac telemetry, intensive care and the post anesthesia care unit) to an outpatient interventional pain center and other outpatient procedural clinics, such as endoscopy and urology.
Diane obtained her Associates Degree in Nursing from Manchester Community College, attended Rivier University and then received her Masters of Science in Nursing from Walden University in 2011. Her career then transitioned to nursing management, where she worked as nursing director of assisted living and long term care facilities and then as director of clinical services for a hospice company. She says, "I am passionate about patient care in general, but especially end-of-life care, where we have the unique opportunity to treat, not only our patients, but their families as well. I look forward to working with such a great team of competent and caring staff at Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice."
