The one hundred honoree: Meghan Kearney, MS, RTT

Mass General Giving

The important role of Meghan Kearney, MS, RTT, in the Department of Radiation Oncology has earned her tremendous and well-deserved respect from both colleagues and patients.

With her smile, sense of humor, and wide-ranging expertise, Meghan has just what it takes to handle her clinical and administrative roles with the utmost level of professionalism. As a radiation therapist, she ensures that patients are treated with care and compassion at the highest level of quality and safety. A part of the department’s leadership team as Training Manager, she makes sure the department is providing opportunities for learning, development and collaboration through organizing CME/educational activities and bringing multidisciplinary team members together for clinical collaboration.

This past year, particularly, Meghan leveraged her clinical and administrative skill sets to take on the clinical roll out of a new electronic medical system, EPIC. This process, described as “Herculean” and “monumental” was a complex challenge in every way. But that didn’t hold back Meghan. “During the EPIC roll out she was outstanding,” said one colleague. “Meghan made sure that we were all as prepared as we could possibly be – and then some.”

Peers and colleagues alike value Meghan for her can-do, patient, and collaborative attitude in all things she tackles. Meghan very deservedly won the Department of Radiation Oncology’s 2016 Employee of the Year Award, as voted upon by her colleagues.
