Middletown, NY – In honor of National Hospital Week, May 11 – May 17, Orange Regional Medical Center has announced its Star of the Year, Jayne O’Malley. Ms. O’Malley also earned this prestigious honor in 2005.
Ms. O’Malley is Orange Regional’s Lung and Head & Neck Cancer Patient Navigator and was chosen as this year’s Star of the Year for her diligence and hard work in providing excellent care to patients with lung, oral, head and neck cancers. In her role as Nurse Navigator, Ms. O’Malley provides education, support and resources to patients diagnosed with lung, oral, head and neck cancers. However, her boundless compassion and deeply caring way with patients and their families is what sets her apart; assisting and supporting in every way possible through their journey toward wellness. Ms. O’Malley’s dedication and support extends beyond those dealing with lung and head and neck cancers. She welcomes the opportunity to help any patient in need, often going above and beyond to research resources and support. In addition to her daily responsibilities, Ms. O’Malley worked hard to establish a Head & Neck Support Group at Orange Regional in partnership with Support for People with Oral, Head and Neck Cancer (SPOHNC) which she also facilitates. Support groups play an essential role in helping patients and their families cope while on their cancer journey. Ms. O’Malley is currently developing a Lung Cancer Support Group, as well. She has been employed with the organization for 17 years.
“Jayne’s dedication to her patients and to Orange Regional is evident in all she does,” says Orange Regional’s President & CEO, Scott Batulis. “She is most deserving of this award.”
The Star of the Year award is given by Orange Regional’s All-Star Employee Recognition Committee. Through the year, the Committee selects and recognizes staff members for going above and beyond on a daily basis to provide quality healthcare to our community.
