Hilda S. Quintanilla

Nurse Practitioner

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1988 as a staff nurse in what eventually became the leukemia-lymphoma inpatient unit. As a staff nurse, I was involved in staff education and guiding, or precepting, new registered nurses. I played an active charge nurse role, and was part of multiple hospital wide committees.

In 1999, I assisted in developing the chemotherapy nurse verification role at the new outpatient facility, Rockefeller Outpatient Pavilion on 53rd Street. A year later, I returned to the inpatient leukemia unit at the hospital.
