The one hundred honoree: Maureen Mann, MS, MBA

Mass General Giving

During her 15-year tenure at the Michael and Dianne Bienes Cancer Center at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Maureen Mann, MS, MBA, brought unwavering dedication and passion to her role as executive director. She is now sharing her talents as excecutive director of two signature institutes at Boca Raton Regional Hospital – the Lynn Cancer Institute and the Lynn Women’s Health and Wellness Institute.

In her time at Holy Cross Hospital, Maureen established four multidisciplinary clinics, doubled the size of the oncology staff, and raised much-needed funds for charity care and program growth. The Holy Cross Cancer Center has also become a partner with the Mass General Cancer Center in providing state-of-the-art cancer prevention, detection and treatment to residents of the Fort Lauderdale area.

In addition to her full-time position, Maureen volunteers tirelessly for the American Cancer Society. In 2015, she became chair of the American Cancer Society Florida Divison, which has 425,000 volunteers. She currently serves on the National Board of Directors for the ACS Cancer Action Network, the advocacy arm of the American Cancer Society and on the Board of Trustees of the Oncology Nursing Society Foundation. She is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Effectiveness (FACHE).

Susan Richards, regional director for Clinical Network Development at Mass General, has worked with Maureen for the past five years and finds her an inspiration:

“I can’t count the number of times Maureen told me she was spending her personal time organizing an event, chairing a meeting, visiting with a patient and family, lobbying in Washington, or raising awareness for cancer screening, and always with true dedication and love for the cause,” Susan says. “We need good doctors and researchers to fight cancer, but without people like Maureen, a lot of the programs and treatment centers would never be built.”
