As part of the MGH bicentennial celebrations, an in-house MGH history channel launched Feb. 25 on closed-circuit televisions across campus. The channel, which can be found on channel 45, highlights important moments in the MGH’s 200-year history as well as departmental milestones and events.
Among the videos that will air are an eight-minute historical documentary narrated by Mallika Marshall, MD, of the MGH Chelsea HealthCare Center. Also featured are interviews with Peter L. Slavin, MD, MGH president, and David F. Torchiana, MD, MGPO chairman and CEO, who discuss the significance of the bicentennial and what it means to them personally.
MGH staff are encouraged to set televisions in waiting rooms and other public areas to channel 45, which also has been made the default channel in patient rooms. All members of the MGH community are invited to submit additional videos for consideration for the history channel by e-mailing the Public Affairs Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Only finished videos that have been appropriately produced and edited will be considered.
