People of KHSC: Anne Vincent

 “I love that the work we do matters. It’s important to me to know if a loved one comes to one of our hospitals and needs point-of-care testing done, they will get a quality result."

Every shift, Anne Vincent makes her rounds to about half a dozen units at Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC).

As a medical laboratory technologist for point-of-care testing, part of her role includes making sure care teams are set up for success.
