Introducing Our

2020 Honoree

Maimonides Medical Center Award

Nancy Schulhoff,BSN, RN, CCRC

Nancy Schulhoff received her Associates Degree in Nursing in 1979 and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1986 from the College of Staten Island.

Ms. Schulhoff worked at Staten Island University Hospital as a Staff Nurse from 1979 to 1985 and later joined the team again as a Research Coordinator from 1999 – 2000. Ms. Schulhoff came to Maimonides Medical Center in 1986 as a staff nurse in the Open Heart Unit, was a Cardiac Research Clinician until 1999 and again from 2002 until her retirement from MMC in 2018.

As a Cardiac Research Clinician at MMC, Ms. Schulhoff worked with the entire Maimonides Research Community, collaborating and mentoring on various cardiac drug and device studies and sponsored clinical trials, as well as working closely with NYS DOH. Furthermore, she was a contributing member on many research committees, including the medical center’s Institutional Review Board, Maimonides Research and Development Foundations’ Grant Review Committee, and abstract reviewer for Maimonides Evening of Research.

She exhibited passion for her work and research committee responsibilities. Nancy’s commitment to her program, the department and its patients would be hard to surpass. Her research expertise, compassion for patients and research subjects, and her superb mentoring of other members of the team contributed to the excellence that the Cardiac service enjoys to this day.

Her co-workers, students, and faculty congratulate and thank Nancy for her years of dedication to her patients and research. We are all enriched today because we have had the great pleasure to meet, know and work with Nancy over the years. We are all proud to call Nancy our friend.

The opportunities in my role as a Research Coordinator are invaluable. I always loved working on projects with many of the residents and fellows. Together seeing the results no matter if it was a positive or negative outcome. Research helped me to appreciate data and how important organizing your project from the front end. Understanding data was key to Maimonides Medical Center Registry Data with NYS DOH , STS and the NCDR.
