The Yeshiva family is excited to welcome its newest member, Diane Healey, RN, who will serve as the school nurse for both the boys and girls schools. Nurse Healey’s responsibilities will include assisting with coordinating and enforcing COVID-19 policies, daily medical needs of students, administering medications, and overseeing immunizations.

Nurse Healey hails from Conneaut Lake, PA, and met her husband of thirty-eight years while an undergraduate at Clarion State College.

She got her degree from UPMC St. Margaret School of Nursing, and says she is most excited to get to know the different students under her care. When not at work, she enjoys gardening, quilting, and painting.

Nurse Healey’s hiring was made possible with the support of The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, as part of their COVID-19 Relief effort. “The Federation has been extremely supportive of Yeshiva throughout this pandemic, literally shouldering the burden with us through thick and thin,” says Rabbi Rosenblum. “More recently, the Federation has provided us with the funding to hire a nurse. This fits right in with our strategic plan to create a wellness department to ensure the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing of every child that has been entrusted to our care.” Yeshiva is enormously grateful to The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh for its continued support and partnership.
