New York State Sen. Rob Ortt announced the New York State “Women of Distinction” recipient for Senate District 62: Kadie Curry, site director of nursing for patient care services at Catholic Health-Mount St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston.
For the past decade, Kadie has served with Catholic Health and held several positions at Mount St. Mary’s, Kenmore Mercy and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo. In her current role, Curry is responsible for leading the nurse managers of the inpatient nursing units, emergency department, ICU, house supervisors, and cardiopulmonary services in providing excellent patient care. In the past 10 years, she has also served as an infection control coordinator, as an RN and an emergency department nursing director.
Ortt’s office said Curry is a well-respected member of the Catholic Health family, recognized for her expertise, her clinical knowledge, and approachable nature by her colleagues. As a Niagara County resident, she is well placed to not only provide expert clinical experience, but she also recognizes what the residents of Niagara County need due to her involvement in the local community. She is a key leader in the Catholic Health organization, delivering guidance and sound decision-making, setting a specific direction for Mount St. Mary’s.
“We are so thankful to have a health care provider like Kadie serving in our community,” Ortt said. “While we are always grateful for those tasked with caring for our sick, current times have highlighted just how lucky we are to have such dedicated and skilled professionals working in our health care system. These frontline workers are our heroes, and because of individuals like Kadie, lives are saved every day.”
Ortt’s team said Curry has worked tirelessly, hand-in-hand with internal and external leadership to lead safety and nursing care initiatives. She continues to work collaboratively during the current COVID-19 pandemic and understands that working side-by-side with community partners delivers the best possible health care.
