Post image for Mary Salisbury

A wife, mother, grandmother and nurse, awarded the 2013/2014 NAPW Professional Woman of the Year; Co-Author of TeamSTEPPS® – curriculum and co-recipient of the 2007 M. Scott Myers Award for applied research in the workplace and awarded by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology; Co-recipient of 2007 John Eisenberg Award Patient Safety and Quality in the category of Innovation and Patient Safety on the National Level and Co-recipient of 2007 and the first Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Healthcare Excellence Award for the translation of a premier teamwork initiative into healthcare, Ms. Salisbury is founder and president of The Cedar Institute, Inc.

Over 40 years of nursing and a passion for solving some of the major issues that face healthcare providers has resulted in a hardy, decade old, business capable of meeting executive and organizational needs as well as those of the individual client who seeks to create work-life balance – excellence in the patient experience while maintaining quality in life at home.

“To do that, Salisbury says, “I must be at once, an entrepreneur, business and project manager, high-caliber subject matter expert, consultant, teacher, coach but most of all, someone who cares.”

The Cedar Institute provides the tools, publications and resources leaders and care teams need to safeguard themselves and others.

Admitting to having been inspired in the past by the Sisters of St. Joseph  Ms. Salisbury says, today, her grandson is her inspiration. “He motivates me to want to leave the world a better place.”

An entrepreneur at heart, Ms. Salisbury considers herself an inventor, a role she plans to expand in the future. “I anticipate inventing elements and products that will solve/resolve some of the most basic yet resistant challenges individuals face on a day-in–day-out basis.”
