Melissa Cardine


Director at Large

have been a nurse for over 20 years. I received my Bachelor of Nursing in 1997 and my Masters in Nursing in 2002. My passion is listening to patients, families and care givers. I have done that at every turn in a nursing career that spans from complex home health care services and hospital nursing to opening a nationally recognized outpatient treatment center.

I truly believe that healing accelerates when patients and health care providers connect and build a common understanding of symptoms and goals. I believe this process is most effective when both sides of the healing dialog are informed about a comprehensive picture of a person’s situation. Unfortunately the current health care system limits the ability of both the patient and their health care providers to achieve this with regularity.
