Super SHEro - Amy Farmer Devigne, NP '89

Amy (Farmer) Devigne. MSDA Class of 1989, is a Nurse Practitioner at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. In the days before COVID19, Amy was working as a Nurse Practitioner in the Thoracic Surgery practice and survivorship in an outpatient setting at Sloan Kettering. As MSKCC, typically focused on cancer care and research, has needed to adjust to the need to treat their patients impacted by the virus, Amy has been reassigned to the main hospital in-patient setting, working on the COVID PURPLE team, dedicated to caring for and treating their patients dealing with a COVID19 diagnosis.

On what she is seeing and feeling in her role as a healthcare provider during these challenging times, Amy said, “I am seeing amazing health care providers come together trying hard to help in this unbelievable pandemic. It is truly surreal.” Amy’s care for the patients at MSKCC is remarkable, providing her patients, particularly in this time of crisis, with expertise in care and compassion beyond measure.

And her family’s service to the community in the days of COVID19 doesn’t stop there. Amy’s husband, Charles Devigne, is the owner of Lexington Pizza Parlour in New York City. The team at LPP has been busy over the past several weeks, dedicating their time and resources to feeding the healthcare providers on the front lines of this crisis – delivering to Amy’s team and others at MSKCC, as well as to hospitals including Mount Sinai, Columbia Presbyterian, the Central Park field hospital and Metropolitan Hospital. Forbes (https://bit.ly/2yzDRDH) recently featured the work they are doing in their local Harlem community and beyond.

Thank you to Amy for the care you provide to your patients and to Charles for caring for Amy and her fellow NYC healthcare heroes!
