Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of Marianne Dietrick-Gallagher, MSN, RN, MBA, as interim administrative director of CANCER CARE PARTNERSHIP, a partnership between Mount Nittany Health and Penn State Cancer Institute, providing personalized care for outpatient hematology, medical oncology and infusion services.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be here, working with a team of such passionate and dedicated professionals,” says Dietrick-Gallagher. “While furthering my education and career, I missed my clinical roots in oncology nursing. Being able to work in this leadership role in such a patient- and family-focused environment is very rewarding.”

Dietrick-Gallagher earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Pittsburgh and her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, graduating magna cum laude from both programs. Dietrick-Gallagher earned her Master of Business Administration from Temple University in Philadelphia, where she received the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence. She previously held positions as a nursing director at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, practice administrator of hospital based specialty practices and administrative director of specialty practices at Crozer-Keystone Health Network in Chester, Pennsylvania, and as a senior consultant with IMA Consulting/Revint Solutions in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. 

“Being able to leave at the end of each day feeling that I’ve made a positive difference to patients, family members or staff makes each day worthwhile.”

Outside of the office, Dietrick-Gallagher enjoys spending time with her husband, their son and daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren, ages 5 and 8.
