Our Director of Nursing at BrightStar of CA - San Mateo

Providing RN oversight on every case from day one

Julie Ann Medina, RN

JulieMedinaHow long have you been a Nurse?
After receiving my Bachelors of Science in Nursing, I have had over six years of industry experience in pre- and post-operative care, operating room, medical-surgical experience with additional expertise in community health and nursing research, as well as health education and discharge planning.

What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
I have vast experience in nursing disciplines such as Medical-Surgical, Labor and Delivery, NICU, PACU, Psychiatric, Hospice and Home Health Care. I have been with BrightStar of San Mateo for over four years and started with them as a field staff managing client care during home visits and providing health and preventative care education. Since starting with BrightStar Care, I have been exposed to additional nursing care settings, which includes school, industrial, commercial, as well as the hospital environment. I am also well versed in the demands as an Office Operations Manager when needed. I also am able to understand the alignment that must exist between our clients and the caregivers and working to assist with the needs of both brings a tremendous opportunity to provide the best quality of care that BrightStar Care is known for.

What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about providing excellent customer service in healthcare for all of our patients, giving them value and satisfaction with expertise and compassion. I consider everyone that coordinates care for each of our clients as an integral part of our team--our family. This encompasses my colleagues in the office, clients and their families as well as my fellow field staff. Furthermore, I also am passionate about the field of home health care as well as providing solutions to the ever-changing demands that our community of families have to endure. The integrity of how I care for my clients on a day-to-day basis and the satisfaction of knowing that I have helped them with their needs is what keeps me coming back for more.

I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by…
Providing optimum care and reaffirming patient safety at all times. Also, consistently assuring them the quality of care that BrightStar stands for by ‘action’, combined with respect and dignity. Education through action for the entire team allows us to provide the best service to our extended family: our patients, our clients and their community._INS_Logo_200wide
