"We’re at the forefront of healthcare in New York City, and that’s something to be proud of."
Nadeige started working at Weill Cornell Medicine as part of the project team for a major software implementation. It was a temporary role, but once she was here, she knew she wanted to apply for a permanent position. “There was such a fantastic sense of comradery between departments and colleagues that I knew that this was where I wanted to be. I wanted to grow my career here in any capacity.”
Nadeige now works as a Senior Operations Coordinator in Budget and Financial Planning. The department supports the financial and administrative management of Weill Cornell Medicine through budget development, space planning, financial analyses, and serving as a resource for other departments. As a result, she has a big-picture view of how the institution has expanded over the past few years. “Our daily work focuses on space, people, and money, and the rate of growth in all three of these areas highlights how Weill Cornell Medicine is growing exponentially overall. It can be overwhelming at times, but it’s overwhelming in a good way. We’re at the forefront of healthcare in New York City, and that’s something to be proud of.”
The rate of growth is also rewarding for Nadeige since part of her role is assisting with the development of presentations for Weill Cornell Medicine’s Board of Overseers. “When I work on a presentation for the Board about a new idea that could benefit the institution and then that idea is put into action, it’s so great to see. It’s a reminder that we all play an integral role in how Weill Cornell Medicine is growing, and that together, we’re an unstoppable force.”
Perhaps the largest part of Nadeige’s job is space planning and operations administration for one of Weill Cornell Medicine’s largest work sites. A number of floors of the building were recently renovated, and she collaborated with architects to select the materials, including chairs, fabrics, fixtures, tiles, and more. “I help design the spaces where employees will have to work for eight hours a day. I want to ensure that they’re happy and comfortable so that they are able to perform their work to the best of their abilities.”
What would Nadeige say to someone considering a career at Weill Cornell Medicine? “Just do it. You won’t lose anything by applying, and you have everything to gain. The benefits are awesome, the people are great, and depending on where you live in the city, it’s pretty central.”
