The store is the eighth shop/salon within the MGH operated by the MGH Ladies Visiting Committee (LVC), a group dedicated to enhancing the MGH experience in any way that contributes to the comfort and well-being of patients, their families and the hospital community.
“The MGH General Store at North Shore is a wonderful addition to the Center for Outpatient Care,” says Elena Sierra, executive administrative director of MGH North Shore. “Our patients, families and staff are happy to have an opportunity to shop with us.”
The General Store at North Shore, open weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, features cards, gifts, accessories, snacks and toys. Proceeds from all LVC retail shops benefit the hospital.
“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to bring the General Store to the MGH North Shore,” says Joanne Ellison, administrative director of the General Store. “It is essential that we are able to provide our services to all MGH patients, visitors and employees. I want to thank Elena for giving the LVC Retail Shops this opportunity and the Ladies Visiting Committee for all their support and confidence in this vision.”
