Melody Nester Joins Memorial Hospital’s Community Relations and Development Team

January 18, 2017

NORTH CONWAY, NH – Memorial Hospital welcomes Melody Nester to the position of Community Relations and Development Coordinator. Melody is a familiar face to many in the Mt. Washington Valley after having worked 10 years in membership and marketing for Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce and previously in marketing and development for Mount Washington Observatory.

Melody said she is excited to work with hospital staff and members of the community in her new role. “I look forward to working on the community relations and development team in support of Memorial Hospital’s important mission to provide excellent and compassionate care in our community.”

Part of Melody’s role will be to help organize Memorial Hospital Open Golf Tournament happening this summer on July 20 at Wentworth Golf Club in Jackson. “I welcome businesses and golfers interested in participating to contact our office now knowing that your participation will support health and wellness programs so vital for local children and other members of our community.”

Vice President of Community Relations & Development Kathy Bennett shared, “Melody really rounds our team and provides a strong foundation for our philanthropy efforts. We were so fortunate to be joined last year by Fryeburg’s Rachel Damon who is already doing great things here to reinforce the culture of philanthropy for our community hospital. Now with Melody in place, I know great things are in store for Memorial and our community in the coming years.”

Damon added, "We are so fortunate to have Melody join us. She has a great work ethic, superior skills and is an all-round wonderful person,” said Rachel Andrews Damon, Memorial Hospital Development manager. “She will help us move forward with her daily vigor and enthusiasm."
