Jenn Mau RN MSN Brings 13 Years of Healthcare Experience
FAIRBURY – Jenn Mau RN will be the new Clinical Care Coordinator at Jefferson Community Health & Life, starting May 22. In her new position, Mau will work with teams of providers to coordinate services and help patients who deal with chronic conditions. She will have an office in JCH&L Fairbury Clinic, and will coordinate with all health coaches at JCH&L.
“As we considered the ways we can better help our area residents be healthier, we realized that a person with healthcare experience who can help make sure patients are receiving the services they need would be very valuable,” said Chad Jurgens, Jefferson Community Health & Life Chief Executive Officer.
The first area of major emphasis for the clinical care coordinator will be diabetes. JCH&L is working with an accountable care organization and a team of health care providers from area hospitals to try to help make a positive difference in the lives of those who have diabetes.
Diabetes is a major health concern in Jefferson County. NebraskaLifeExpectancy at worldlifeexpectancy.com shows Jefferson County as the 32nd county in the state for deaths from diabetes. In a separate ranking, Jefferson County was ranked 67th of 78 reporting Nebraska counties for overall health by County Health Rankings.
“We have a responsibility as a health organization to help our residents live healthier lives,” Jurgens said. “We believe the clinical care coordinator position is a key position to help everyone do that.”
Mau has been with Jefferson Community Health & Life since 2004. She has worked as a nurse aide, a licensed practical nurse, and an RN. She received her Masters of Science in Nursing Administration and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Nebraska Wesleyan University; her Associate Degree in Nursing from Cloud County Community College, Concordia, Kan.; and her practical nursing diploma from Southeast Community College Beatrice.
“I’m excited to utilize all of my experiences and education to help coordinate services for our patients,” Mau said.
She is a member of the Go Red for Women planning team, has provided health services at the Jefferson County Spring Expo, and has been involved in the JCH&L Relay for Life team.
