Maritess Pita

Maritess Pita is a registered nurse working in our clinic. She is often seen bustling around the building and tending to our fellow residents. 

Maritess was born in the Philippines and lived there until she was 17 and came to the United States. Her move here was facilitated by an aunt who lived in Philadelphia and petitioned to bring her, her mother, and her mother’s 12 siblings to this country. Maritess earned a spot in a special accelerated program leading to becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse and then worked in a retirement home in Philadelphia for the next two years. She married and moved to Northern Virginia and has worked at GHBC for the past 24 years. For the first five years she was a charge nurse on the Health Care floor but then was promoted to a supervisor on the floor. She continued to work here while she went back to school at Northern Virginia Community College and at George Mason University to become a registered nurse. She presently works in the Clinic assisting the doctors and the nurse practitioners doing follow-up with residents and dealing with emergencies. 

Maritess does not have much leisure time but she enjoys playing with her beloved boxer, gardening, and visiting relatives. She and her husband have recently brought her parents into their home with them. Maritess has no plans to leave GHBC and says that the residents are the “best part of the job.”
