About Anne

Throughout her professional life, Anne Ryan displayed an unwavering commitment to education and patient care with a special place in her heart for pediatric patients. Beginning her career as a teacher, Anne went on to work as a Neonatal/Pediatric transport nurse at the University of Virginia. Upon her return to Central NY in 1986, she started at Upstate Medical University as an RN in the Pediatric ICU. Moving to the Emergency Department she continued her education, obtaining her PNP degree (Pediatric Nurse Practitioner) as well as EMT and Paramedic certifications. She worked as the Emergency Management Coordinator for Upstate Medical, implementing plans and procedures for disaster preparedness for the hospital, eventually transitioning to the role of Regional Resource Coordinator for the Central NY Region. She volunteered her time as a Paramedic with Cazenovia Area Volunteer Ambulance Corps (CAVAC) and at Toggenburg as a Ski Patrol member taking care of the children on the “Bunny Slope”. She also worked as a nurse for Dome Medical at Syracuse University for 32 years.


In addition to serving the local community, she was active in emergency preparedness and emergency medical services at both the state and national level. Anne was a member of the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) as well as the NY State committee for EMSC (Emergency Medical Services for Children) which collaborates with emergency doctors, nurses and paramedics/EMTs to establish educational requirements and standards of care. She continued to teach courses in emergency preparedness including TNCC, ENPC, BDLS, ADLS, and CHEC throughout NYS, completing her last course in December 2018. 


Anne Ryan was a true resource to the Central New York Region. Her dedication, compassion, and knowledge will be sorely missed.
