Beverly Parmele retired November 2010, after having worked for the Orleans County Health Department for 27 years, initially as a Public Health Nurse and for the past 20 years as Director of Patient Services. Mary Janet Sahukar, current Director of Patient Services and former Supervising Public Health Nurse, has worked with the Health Department since 1988.

While overseeing both the Public Health Nurses and the Certified Home Health Agency, Beverly and Mary Janet have had a full plate from writing policies, dealing with staffing issues including under staffing, responding to the H1N1 pandemic and, most recently, the complex task of selling the Department's Certified Home Health Agency and applying to become a Licensed Home Care Service Agency. Both Bev and Mary Janet's passion for Public Health and nursing is evident in their dedication to the Health Department and their relationship with the staff and their commitment to quality care for the residents of Orleans County.
