Marissa Broadley Named Director of Infection Prevention at Saratoga Hospital

Saratoga Hospital has promoted Marissa Broadley to director of infection prevention, responsible for infection prevention and control at the hospital’s more than 20 locations.

The Ballston Lake resident has 13 years of experience in infection prevention in roles of increasing responsibility. Most recently, she was manager of infection prevention at Saratoga Hospital, a member of the Albany Med Health System.

With her System colleagues at Albany Medical Center Hospital, Columbia Memorial Health and Glens Falls Hospital, as well as partners at other northeastern New York hospitals, Broadley has played an integral role in the region’s response to infection prevention challenges throughout the pandemic.

“Marissa has been a go-to resource and leader on our team during an often-frightening time,” said Dr. Richard Falivena, vice president and chief medical and physician integration officer at Saratoga Hospital. “She has worked closely with public health officials and her counterparts at other organizations, identifying and communicating best practices to ensure optimal protection for patients and staff.

“Our hospital and community benefit enormously from her dedication and expertise,” he added.

A graduate of Binghamton University, Broadley also has a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Dominican College in Orangeburg, a master’s in public health from New York Medical College in Valhalla, and a master’s in adolescence education from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry. She is a registered nurse and is certified in infection control and epidemiology.

Broadley is a member of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology and serves on its National Conference Committee. She is the treasurer of the northeastern New York chapter of APIC.
