Kathleen Ruane Nursing Scholars Program A Project of College of Health Professions

Remember a Vital Piece of the Towson Community

As part of a life well-lived, Kathy Ruane provided care for the citizens of greater Baltimore, particularly for those who needed her help the most. Most recently a nurse practitioner at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Kathy also provided medical care to senior citizens in low-income facilities in and around Towson. She worked for Catholic Charities at multiple locations, and treated the homeless at the Assistance Center for Towson Churches. She also served as director of oncology services and hospice director at Union Memorial Hospital in the last 1980s. Kathy passed away at age 67 in February 2018, but her legacy lives on at Towson University.
