Background

Gwenn LaRagione, RN, BSN, CCM, CHPPN has been a registered nurse in the field of pediatrics for over 25 years, working the majority of those years for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Through her experiences in clinical care, case management, and care coordination, Gwenn has developed a strong passion to help patients with serious/life threatening illnesses in order to ensure they live the best life possible for as long as possible.

As a nurse coordinator on PACT’s interdisciplinary team, my role primarily focuses on care coordination, communication, collaboration, and identifying appropriate/adequate resources that align with our patient’s and family’s goals and wishes. I also collaborate closely with community hospice and home care agencies to help facilitate optimal and safe care for our patients and families across the care continuum. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia highly values the field of Pediatric Palliative Medicine as evidenced by their continued recognition, support, and encouragement of the care that PACT provides. I greatly appreciate this support along with the privilege to be part of an interdisciplinary team dedicated to improving the lives of our most vulnerable patients. 

Our team is often asked what we do to take care of ourselves. Spending time with my family is at the top of my list. I also enjoy being outdoors, hiking, and exercise. One of the many reasons I love working for PACT is how everyone looks after each other, understanding how important it is to stay physically and emotionally well in order to be at our best when caring for others.
