Laura Benn is the President and Founder of Guided HealthCARE. She is a Registered Nurse Nationally Board Certified in Case Management with a specialization in Critical Care. Laura earned her degree in Nursing at St. Joseph Hospital School of Nursing and Millersville University in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She brings an additional 17 years of business experience in the marketing, advertising, and entertainment industries and over twenty years of Neuro-Trauma, Coronary Care, and Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Nursing to Guided HealthCARE. Laura transitioned her work from the Critical Care setting to the community to support chronically ill patients, families, and the medical team as they navigate the healthcare system.

For nearly 25 years as a Critical Care Nurse, Laura has helped patients, their families, and loved ones, in the acute care environment and in the community to navigate challenging medical conditions. It is Laura’s goal is to be the best possible resource for providing comprehensive clinical based Nurse Care Coordination and Case Management. Patients once cared for in the hospital, although now more acute and complex, are being discharged earlier out to the community. The need for skilled Nurses to work effectively and efficiently with the care team to provide comprehensive clinical support and education for patients and families has increased. In addition to the clinical support, expertise is needed to help assemble resources required for stabilization outside the hospital. Also, many of her patient’s families live outside the immediate area. They rely upon Guided HealthCARE to provide the level of care and support they want for their loved ones. Laura often works with patients and families for a long period of time, through many chapters of their life cycle and often through end of life. Given this relationship, the information she is able to share with the medical team creates a universal awareness, continuity of care, and better outcomes overall. Per Laura, “My sincere and genuine hope is that we have created a much-needed resource that helps people obtain the most from their healthcare experience.”

Laura is an active outdoor enthusiast who enjoys hiking, gardening, golfing, and travel. When Laura finds herself indoors, Peloton workouts help to complement her active lifestyle. Laura’s most treasured moments can be found spending time with her family and friends.
