In the Spotlight ~ Dorothy Mullaney
This year’s lifetime of service award was given to Dorothy Mullaney. She is the director of associate providers at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. She is an instructor in pediatrics at Geisel Medical School of Medicine. She joined Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in 1999. Dorothy received her Master’s in Health Sciences from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, after receiving her baccalaureate from Saint Anselm College. In 2013 she was awarded her DNP from Northeastern University. During the last 20 years, Dorothy has served the New Hampshire Nurse Practitioner Association and NH NP’s in various leadership roles. On the board of nursing, she has been a member of the liaison committee and prior to full scope authority, she served on the prescriptive practice committee. Dorothy is committed to the role of the nurse practitioner. She has unified her team at DHMC as the “go to” person. Her selection as the first director of associate providers speaks volumes as to the esteem she is held in. Dorothy is a tremendous treasure to all of us. But most importantly to the tiny babies and families she cares for. At the the community hospitals throughout NH, the sound of the helicopter or ambulance siren alerted us that help was on the way. But it was Dorothy’s calm and confident voice that put us at ease.
