About Susan

Susan Nolan, MSN, RN is the founder of Discover Health and a registered nurse with over 20 years of experience in the nursing field. She decided to start Discover Health when she realized the need for personalized, patient-first care that also addresses the needs of family members. Her time working with doctors and hospitals prepared her for this opportunity.

  • As a registered nurse, she skillfully manages the coordination and transitioning of patients from hospital to home or higher levels of care.
  • During her time as a clinical nurse manager, she was responsible for the collaboration of an interdisciplinary team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists, social workers, registered nurses, home health aides, and insurance providers. She improved patient care by implementing new communication processes and procedures to quickly meet patient demand for services.
  • She was also the Director of Clinical Operations/Director of Nursing. In this position, she was accountable for the oversight of day-to-day operations of patient care provided by physicians, and inter-disciplinary clinical teams, regulatory accreditation, revenue cycle, and budget. She headed clinical service line projects to improve the quality of the patient experience and timely access to care. Susan also developed an educational curriculum to support clinicians in new and existing operations.

Always patient, calm and ready to listen; Susan helped us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. She was accessible and flexible to our needs while navigating care for my disabled brother. I would highly recommend her services.

Susan’s skill, knowledge of medical terms and research of recent medical developments related to my condition was the key to a successful outcome for a very challenging medical situation with a long list of potential complications. Susan provided excellent materials to educate me as to my various choices for treatment and interfaced very well with all Doctors and Nurses as she accompanied me to many appointments, consultations, and two surgeries. Highly recommended!

Many times, navigating the insurance while dealing with an illness, can be very challenging. Susan was able to help me better understand what my insurance covers, how to communicate with my insurance company and how to continue to follow up to make sure I’m not paying bills that should be covered by insurance. In addition, I plan on contacting Susan for further help in communicating with my doctors, as a liaison because sometimes, as a patient, I feel my doctors don’t “hear” me. Susan is amazing and I highly recommend her services!

Seeking for health care as an LGBTQ elder

During Pride Month, I have realized the unique health challenges that face the LGBT elder population. But what most concerned me is the discrimination and accessibility LGBT elders face when seeking health care.
