Each year, MGH Mail Services processes more than 12 million pieces of mail. To help meet the postal needs of the hospital, on June 21 Mail Services opened an expanded mail center at the Charlestown Navy Yard (CNY) Building 149, Room 1160.
"This additional space allows us to provide the same services to the CNY community as we offer at our main campus facility," says Jim Burns, CMDSM, EMCM, Linen and Mail Services supervisor. "We will be adding a postage machine in the next couple of weeks that will enable us to meter mail for all buildings associated with the Charlestown Navy Yard area, as well as departments located at the Schrafft's Building."
The new space is double the size of the original space and features state-of-the-art sorting equipment. Additionally, two Mail Services employees will now staff the location instead of one. Because of these improvements, employees at CNY will no longer have to remember a locker combination to pick up their department mail and can instead simply request it at the location's counter.
The center's hours of operation continue to be 8 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Employees are welcome to stop by and see the new center. For more information about Mail Services, visit http://intranet.massgeneral.org/mailservices.
