TBHC's Senior Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive Continues a Family Tradition of Nursing Care
For Mary Anne Healy-Rodriquez, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, nursing is a family affair. Taking on the role of Chief Nurse Executive (CNE) at THBC, means coming full circle and continuing a legacy of nursing and a career path that spans generations.
"My grandmother Madeline M. McIntyre, was a nurse at TBHC from 1968 - 1972. She worked on a patient unit called the "Z" unit, and was in charge of medication dispensing. She was a 1930 graduate from the Jewish Memorial Nursing School. I remember her telling us about eating oxtail soup in the cafeteria and the diversity of the patients she took care of.", noted Healy-Rodriquez.
Nurse McIntyre was known as the nurse who washed the feet of patients and tended to their needs. "Look over here. This is my grandmother's nurses cap and pin. These items mean so much to me.", Healy-Rodriquez said. "I am so honored to be leading patient care services for the same hospital that my grandmother worked at."
In addition to her grandmother, CNE Healy-Rodriquez's mother and aunt were nurses. "I feel fortunate to lead TBHC's nurses and it is a responsibility that I take seriously. This hospital has been serving Brooklyn for 170 years, and our nursing team provides the quality and compassionate care that I am proud of. After all, I have to make my grandmother proud of me!"
