The Rotary Club of Lockport recognized Jane James, NP, Director of Admissions for Niagara Hospice, with a 2020 Paul Harris Fellows Award on November 17.

James has been a registered nurse for more than 17 years. She joined Niagara Hospice in February 2019 to lead the admissions department for all hospice care programs for Niagara County residents. She oversees a team of admissions nurses that helps patients and families enter the program in family homes, Niagara Hospice House in Lockport, collaborative partnerships in North Tonawanda and Niagara Falls, and contracted health care facilities, including skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and adult homes.

James is very diligent and thorough in her outreach to the community, primary care physicians across Niagara County and partner health care facilities throughout Western New York to educate and evaluate prospective patients and their family members and caregivers. She is a dedicated leader for the admissions department and the entire organization in the unified mission of providing expert, comprehensive, end-of-life care and personalized support to every Niagara County patient and family member navigating the challenging times of a terminal illness prognosis of six months or less.

In her previous clinical positions, James was a registered nurse at Eastern Niagara Hospital in Lockport, where she specialized in the emergency department and critical care, and at Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo in the neuro-surgical intensive care unit. She holds several certifications, including BLS (Basic Life Support), ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) and PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support).

A resident of the City of Lockport, she is a graduate of Barker High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Daemen College. She also holds a Master of Science in Family Nurse Practitioner from D'Youville College and is board certified.

She and her husband have two sons in the Lockport City School District.
