Introducing Our New Director, Clinical Leadership and Excellence, Zoë Dawe

Peel Children’s Centre (PCC) is excited to announce that Zoë Dawe will be joining our senior leadership team in the role of Director, Clinical Leadership and Excellence. Zoë’s first day with us will be May 6, 2019.

For more than 17 years Zoë has championed care and quality initiatives for clients and patients in the mental health and addictions sector, most recently in the Peel and Halton communities as the Manager of one-Link. Under her leadership, one-Link implemented an award-winning coordinated access model for all ten Mississauga-Halton LHIN-funded community addiction and mental health service providers, improving patient experience for over fifty thousand Mississauga-Halton residents. She also has experience working in a leadership capacity with the Access and Transitions Program, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), and Halton’s Lead Agency for child and youth mental health services, Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK).

Provincially, Zoë was instrumental in working with the Alternate Level of Care (ALC) Task Group of Ontario’s four specialty mental health hospitals (CAMH, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences, Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care, and The Royal) in developing community-focused action recommendations across the continuum of care for the CEO and physician work groups.

Zoë has her Masters of Science in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) and is LEAN Green Belt Certified. With a demonstrated history of advancing, leading and transforming clinical services; a strong affinity for data-informed decision-making; a commitment to continuous learning and quality improvement; and, most importantly, a client-centred approach to service planning, Zoë is a perfect fit for the senior clinical leadership role at PCC.

Zoë is known for being a highly accountable, energetic, skilled, passionate and compassionate leader who “walks the talk” of excellence from the perspective of the client’s experience, and in collaboration with her team and community partners. We are very excited to be welcoming Zoë at the same time as we launch our new Strategic Plan, and as we continue to transition our Lead Agency role for children and youth mental health and addictions in the Peel Service Area to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

For those of you who know Zoë, you can look forward to continuing opportunities for collaboration. For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to meet Zoë, we look forward to introducing her to you in ways that will further strengthen the mental health and addictions service system in Peel.
