Laurie Miller Patterson, an Organizational Ombuds in health care since 2005, assists employees throughout the Cleveland Clinic – Akron General system to constructively resolve workplace conflict.

She accomplishes these aims through listening; helping visitors to sort through viable options to address concerns; coaching employees at all levels through conflict; supporting process-improvement dialogue between parties or among groups; training in relationship-building, group decision-making, communication skills, conflict resolution, and the influence of all of that on patient safety.

Laurie has a Master’s Degree from Ohio University and has taught at eight universities in five states. She served from 1998 to 2001 as a mediator and principle trainer in Mediation and Conflict Resolution Skills at the Cleveland Mediation Center, on of the oldest community-based mediation centers in the country. Laurie is a licensed facilitator for Reigniting the Spirit of Caring, Creative Health Care Management, 2009. In 2010, she received the International Ombudsman Association’s certification as an Organizational-Ombudsman Practitioner.
