NEW ORLEANS— Catholic Charities PACE Greater New Orleans (PACE GNO) announced in a press release the appointment of Dr. Jeryl Parmenter to medical director. Parmenter has dedicated the past 26 years of her life to providing medical services for seniors and veterans.
“We are thrilled to appoint Parmenter to medical director for PACE. Her heart for the community and passion for supporting patients and their families is truly inspiring,” said executive director of PACE GNO Antonio Dias. “As she steps into this new role, we look forward to benefiting from her years of valuable experience so that we can continue to provide a comprehensive package of health services for elderly individuals in our care.”
Prior to PACE, Parmenter served as an RN working in Intensive Care at different facilities, before going to medical school and eventually relocating to Florida where she spent a number of years providing senior care services with her own private practice, along with teaching and mentoring students and residents of Lake Erie Osteopathic Medical School. Parmenter then went on to serve women veterans in a Women’s Clinic of North Carolina and in the Florida Healthcare Systems and has since practiced at Federally Qualified Health Centers, such as Daughters of Charity, in New Orleans for the past several years.
“I have always maintained a strong belief in service to others and supporting patients and their families to the best of my ability,” said Parmenter. “I look forward to helping further the mission of PACE Greater New Orleans and giving back to the city and community I fell in love with as soon as I visited.”
PACE GNO is an affiliated ministry of CCANO, which provides a comprehensive network of social services that connects clients to resources and acts as a springboard to self-sufficiency for those struggling in the eight civil parishes of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Through its ministries, programs and community partnerships, CCANO offers support that empowers individuals, families and communities to grow and thrive.
