Delta Medical welcomes nurse practitioner

Nurse practitioner Elizabeth (Liz) Scialdone recently joined the staff of Delta Medical in Rome.

Scialdone joins RN Lynne Philley and family nurse practitioner Libby Gleasman.

“With experience in both primary care and hospital settings, Liz is a welcome addition to our staff,” said director Kristen Hutchins.

For Scialdone, caring for patients in a primary care setting means developing and maintaining relationships with patients and their families.

“At Delta Medical, patients are at the center of all we do,” Scialdone said.

Scialdone has eight years experience as an FNP.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and her Master of Science in nursing as a family nurse practitioner from SUNY IT, Utica.

An adjunct nursing instructor at SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Utica, she utilizes her experience to help her students take one day at a time and to embrace learning.

Delta Medical, part of Rome Memorial Hospital, is recognized as a patient-centered medical home dedicated to providing every patient with the highest level of individualized primary care, including prevention and wellness.
