As the Director of Extended Hours, Danielle Chiu is responsible for all new patient referrals and clinical operations that take place after hours (Monday through Friday from 4:30pm-8:30am, plus weekends and holidays), as well as maintaining successful communication between the Hospice, Home Health Clinical and Intake departments to ensure the successful flow of information from after-hours operations to weekday operations. The Extended Hours team is a key element of RVNAhealth’s 24 hours/7 days a week operation.
Danielle began her career as an oncology nurse in 2008, moving to Hospice in three years, and then progressing within a community hospice program from on-call nurse to nurse case manager, to hospice supervisor then to interim hospice manager. Danielle joined the RVNAhealth team as a per diem triage nurse in May 2019 when the extended hours team was developed. She became full time in December 2019 and was named Director of Extended Hours in December 2020.
Danielle graduated from Holy Name Hospital School of Nursing in Englewood Cliff, NJ where she earned her Certified Hospice and Palliative Nursing (CHPN) certificate. She continues to work towards her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City. Danielle and her partner live in Bergen County New Jersey, with their son who is a competitive swimmer who keeps them busy year-round. When they’re not at the pool, their favorite pastime is relaxing on the beach.
