Mary Maroney/RN Turned Entrepreneur

Mary Maroney, RN graduated from Wagner College in 1975 and was hired by Maimonides Medical Center where she worked and received her MSN from Adelphi Academy.

Mary left Maimonides in 1983 to open, with a physician friend of hers, an ambulatory care center, which still operates to this day. In 1989, she founded a company, Maxireturn, with her longtime friend, Marie Sayour.  Initially, the company was started as a medical billing company, it’s evolved to include practice management, and today, the focus is on Electronic Medical Records. “We help with the training and implementation of EMRs throughout the various phases including gap analysis, scheduling, hands on training and system wide application.  We can also help with chart abstractions and data collection for submission at year-end for measures,” Mary said. Additionally, in 2008, the partners formed a second company, RN Staffing Solutions, LLC. Through this company, they provide supplemental staffing, patient assessments and non-medical companions in the home and hospital settings.

Mary Maroney is a second generation Irish American.  Her family is from Milltown Malbay, County Clare. She was born in Bayridge, Brooklyn, her father was a physician at a time when house calls were made and they only cost five dollars. ♦
