Assistant Director of Nursing/Nurse Educator
NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst

After more than 30 years in the NYC Health + Hospitals system, the past six at Elmhurst, Marilou Omoyon-Perham has earned a reputation as a dynamic nurse educator who makes everyone she works with better.

As Elmhurst’s chief nursing officer puts it: “She is the nurse that you hope you can get to mentor you. She rolls up her sleeves and gets things done, always volunteers for the tasks that are big or complicated or difficult and completes them with grace.”

Omoyon-Perham began her career in her native Philippines and immigrated to the United States in 1985. She continued her education with a master’s degree in nursing from Columbia University and has had an impact everywhere she’s worked in the city’s public health care system: in the NICU and PICU at Bellevue, as the head of nursing quality and management at Metropolitan and as a key leader in Elmhurst’s designation this year as a “Baby-Friendly” facility.

Looking back on her career, Omoyon-Perham says that working for NYC Health + Hospitals has given her a lifetime of opportunities to have a positive impact on people of many backgrounds. “The cultural diversity of both patients and workforce has enhanced both my personal and professional growth,” she says.
