Momentum Nursing Services was founded in 2018 by Denise Holmlund, an experienced nurse.  She has a passion for nursing and a clear vision for what true patient-centered care should be.

WHAT

Nurses are the conduit between patients, physicians, and the healthcare system at large.  As a long time hospital nurse, I often found myself in the position of advocating for my patients but was always constrained by time, tasks and organizational infrastructure.  I realized, after 30 years in the field, that our healthcare system rarely allowed me to provide the nursing care that I felt my patients deserved, so I decided to look outside the system, to see where I could make a difference in patients' lives.

WHY

Being an Health Services Coordinator allows me to get back to my roots.  In 1990, I chose to become a nurse because it fulfills my heartfelt desire to truly help those in need.  Today, as an patient advocate, I am able to bring the "art of caring" to the forefront of my practice.  Working directly with patients (and their families) allows me to spend quality time providing care that encompasses the patient's whole being - not just their physical health.

My thoughts...

We are all aware that healthcare in Canada is in a constant state of flux. The system's margin for error has grown exponentially, so too has the disconnect between provider and patient.  The result: Miscommunication among clinicians and patients, gaps along the care continuum, and unnecessary medical errors.  Protect yourself and the ones you love by hiring a patient advocate.
