Employee Spotlight Shines on Melissa Nolan, EMT, and Emergency Management Planner

This month, we are proud to shine our Employee Spotlight on Melissa Nolan, EMT, and  Emergency Management Planner.

Melissa has been with Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for five years. She grew up in the Riverdale section of the Bronx and still resides there. Melissa attended elementary school at St. Margaret of Cortona, high school at Saint Vincent Ferrer, and received her Bachelors of Liberal Arts and Sciences in Communication and Media Management from SUNY New Paltz. Melissa received her EMT certification from Montefiore Hospital –  Wakefield campus.

In her free time, Melissa enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She likes to go with them to sporting events, concerts, and Broadway shows. She also enjoys travelling with her family. One of her most memorable vacations was a Mediterranean cruise around Italy, France, and Greece. She is now planning to take a trip to Nashville.

Melissa likes different types of food, especially Italian, Greek, Spanish and Portuguese. She enjoys all types of music, and listens to everything from Elvis and the Rat Pack to the Beatles, Motown, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Miley Cyrus and Lizzo. Her favorite sports teams are the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Yankees. Being of Italian, Portuguese, Brazilian and Irish descent, she roots for their national teams during the Soccer World Cup but her favorite is the Brazilian team.

She enjoys working at Jamaica Hospital because she feels that her mind is challenged at least once a day and with that comes the opportunity to learn and expand her knowledge. Melissa likes being part of the Emergency Management Department because it plays such an important role in helping to keep the hospital functioning well, especially during times of crisis. 

Melissa’s priorities in life include  making sure that her family is well cared for. She also believes it is important to lend a helping hand to others so that they can achieve their goals.

We are fortunate to have Melissa as a part of our team and look forward to her continuing to work with us for many more years in the future.
