MAUREEN R. (Connors) BROWN Notice
MAUREEN R. (nee Connors)

Passed away on July 8, 2018 after bravely battling cancer with her family by her side. Maureen was born on Aug. 20, 1951. She graduated from Nazareth Academy in 1969, Holy Family College in 1973, and worked at MCP as a staff nurse from 1973-1981, and later worked in staff development. Maureen worked at Hahnemann Hospital and completed the Nurse Practitioner Program from 1981-1985. She was an employee of Abington Hospital from 1985-2016. She started as a Nurse House Mgr. of the Newborn Center, and then took a position as Nurse Mgr. of the Ob/Gyn Clinic, as well as Neonatal Followup. Maureen helped implement many programs for Prenatal Care that included total care packages for economically disadvantaged patients. She also helped with fundraising for large equipment purchases that she felt were essential for excellent patient care. Maureen mentored many nurses and helped mold them to standards of excellence. Many nurses presently working at Abington have written kind notes expressing how Maureen had a great impact and influence on their careers. Maureen was very pleased when these notes were read to her, realizing that she had left a legacy of care for staff and patients.
Her family would like to thank the staff at the Rosenfeld Cancer Center, Abington Hospice, and all those who cared for her.
