Posted on Sep 5, 2018 in Announcements | 0 comments

Dear Members of Summit Medical Staff, 

It is with gratitude and sadness that we announce the retirement of Joanne Jellin, PsyD, our esteemed colleague, who has lead the Summit Medical Staff Department for nearly 22 years. She began work at Providence Hospital in 1981 in the Medical Staff Office, subsequently came to Summit to lead our Medical Staff in 1996.  At one point she was asked to lead both the Summit and Alta Bates Medical Staffs for approximately five years. Dr. Jellin has been the heart and soul of our Medical Staff Organization. She has an incredible breadth and depth of knowledge that has guided our Medical Staff leaders through challenging times. She has been a monumental mentor to numerous colleagues throughout the years. She maintains compassion toward physicians and understands the myriad of challenges we face, doing her best to support us. Her presence will be greatly missed in the Medical Staff Office. We genuinely wish her the best in her retirement. Here’s to an amazing career, Dr. Jellin! 

Jill Kacher Cobb, MD
