Northfield Hospital + Clinics has named Jodi Wieczorek, APRN, AGCNS-BC, ACHPN, OCN as Director of the Cancer Care & Infusion Center on the Northfield Hospital campus.
Wieczorek is a clinical nurse specialist and advanced practice nurse with expertise in oncology, palliative care, gerontology, and pain management for adult and geriatric patients. She brings a unique combination of experience to the role, balancing direct patient care and clinic management in this specialized position.
“It’s a privilege to work with patients and their families experiencing a diagnosis and treatment for a serious illness, including cancer,” Wieczorek says. “I appreciate being in a community hospital, because care is about relationships, supporting patients and their families by meeting them where they are, helping them with a challenge, and smoothing the way for the future.”
“We’re privileged to have a leader with the skill and sensitivity that Jodi brings to patient care,” says Tammy Hayes, chief nurse executive for Northfield Hospital + Clinics. “Jodi has an impressive record of fostering interdisciplinary teams that provide holistic care that builds on each patient’s goal for their own care.”
This is a return to Northfield for Wieczorek, a graduate of St. Olaf College.
