Marilyn Liota, VNSNY’s longest-serving nurse, has announced her retirement, effective April 2. Marilyn first joined us in 1952 and has devoted her life to our 119-year mission of caring for all New Yorkers. At age 83, Marilyn remains a visionary leader, carrying out her pioneering role as Vice President, Acute Care, in our Queens region. In that capacity, Marilyn supervises 400+ nurses and other clinicians in providing home health care throughout our city’s most diverse borough. She has won many prestigious awards for her work. Colleagues call Marilyn a “living treasure” and beacon in community nursing: inspiring countless nurses to rise to their highest professional standards. Her lifelong philosophy: “Never lose sight of the patient.”
Kudos, Marilyn, on your many decades of devoted service to our patients and your colleagues!

Marilyn has been beyond wonderful to work with at VNSNY. She has been a reliable supporter of my work with the Emergency Response System and the Telework Program, always willing to try something new, be the first out of the gate to test some new procedure or plan. Her boundless creativity and calm and measured presence and leadership will leave a huge void when she leaves. I wish her all the best in her new life and hope it is filled with joy and new adventures!
You will be missed terribly!
Is it really true?
You are a legend here Marilyn. A true visionary and an exemplary leader! You will be sorely missed!
Thank you for all those years of dedicated work. And many thanks for being a champion to the TimeBank (if you get bored, we could use help expanding to your neighborhood!!)

Congratulations, Marilyn! You have often inspired and frequently challenged me with your dedication to our mission and your commitment to your VNSNY staff. Under your leadership in Queens for the past 25+ years that we have been working together has led to so many wonderful outcomes for both patients and people. Best of luck, and hope that your next venture brings us together again.
Sincerely, Marian Haas
