Family Nurse Practitioner, Our Medical Provider Team
Kate Roccon, FNP is accepting new patients. Roccon joined the Wood River Health team in November 2021 as a new Family Nurse Practitioner. She was born at Westerly Hospital and has spent the majority of her nursing career serving the local communities of coastal Rhode Island and Southeastern Connecticut.
Kate Roccon has a wealth of patient care experience in both the hospital and ambulatory care settings. She comes to us from the Yale New Haven Health System, where she spent the last six years leading and developing a Care Management program focused on extending care to the most vulnerable patients, with the goals of decreasing their disease burden, and increasing their success navigating throughout the healthcare system. She is very passionate about primary care, and providing people with holistic support that is both collaborative and empowering.
Roccon has been recognized on numerous occasions over the years for her stellar nursing performance and leadership skills; including winning a Nightingale Nursing Award in 2017 for the care management efforts she achieved during her time at YNHHS. She is thrilled to be joining the Wood River Health team, and aims to continue to build upon a culture of integrity, respect, and compassion for all of the people we serve.
