Melanie Russell, RN
The Orthopaedic Institute Surgery Center in Metropolis, Illinois, helps its community by never sending a child who needs surgery back home without that surgery if the ASC can safely provide it. This is irrespective of the child’s insurance status. Melanie Russell, RN, the administrator of the ASC, is a pivotal part of this effort.
