The one hundred honoree: Ellison 14 Nursing Staff

Mass General Giving

“With the growth in the Cancer Center has come the challenge of limited capacity. Oncology nursing requires expert knowledge, skill and dedication. When Mass General decided to expand its inpatient hematology/oncology capacity by adding 15 beds on Phillips 21, the leadership and staff on Ellison 14, our Bone Marrow Transplant/Inpatient Oncology Unit, were fully committed to the success of this expansion.

They agreed to do all they could to support their nurse colleagues on their new sister unit in Phillips 21, designated the Oncology Special Care Unit. Nurses on Ellison 14 volunteered to rotate in the new unit during nights and weekends to help their colleagues care for this most vulnerable patient population and meet their complex, specialized needs. The spirit of generosity and service of these wonderful nurses reminds us of why more cancer patients choose the Cancer Center than any other hospital in New England.”
