Meet Melissa Ricciardelli, our amazing new rehab director at Coronado Healthcare in Phoenix, AZ. She has been part of the Ensign family for four years and was recently promoted into this leadership role. Melissa’s passion is truly improving the quality of life for every patient she comes in contact with. Her goal for Coronado is to have multiple LTC programs where each patient is engaged in meaningful activities every day and as independently as possible. She loves teaching, developing and empowering the leaders on her team – Melissa has a passion for empowering the members of her therapy team to be extraordinary therapists and leaders by guiding and teaching them.. The most meaningful exchange Melissa has had with a patient in the last six months was simply chatting with a patient and his family about how much progress he had made – and having him show her what he could now do. Melissa was gratified not only by his physical improvement but by how much his mental health had come from being very sad and depressed to on this day, having a huge smile on his face because he felt like he could do everything he needed to do on his own. When she is not building something great at Coronado, you can find Melissa spending time with her husband and kids, camping and hanging out with friends.
