An update on Mass General's new Lunder Building

01/Jul/2011

On July 5, the new Lunder Building’s Bander Bridge and Braverman Gallery will officially open, providing an indoor connection between the Yawkey Building and the main hospital. Later this summer, staff and equipment will begin to move into the new radiation oncology and inpatient cancer care areas of the new Lunder Building.

New Radiation Oncology technologies in the Lunder Building
“Not only will the open floor plan and proximity of the department to the Cancer Center and Francis H. Burr Proton Therapy Center at the Yawkey Center enhance communication among physicians, physics staff, nurses, therapists, and patients and their families, but our patients undergoing chemotherapy infusion treatments or having medical or surgical oncology appointments at the Yawkey Center on the same day will have the convenience of appointments only steps away.” – Andrea Paciello, executive director of Radiation Oncology.

Medical Oncology on Floors 9 and 10
“The new unit is patient and family focused. The space is bright and welcoming for both staff and patients and families.” – Barbara Cashavelly, nursing director of Phillips 21, a 20-bed medical oncology unit, which will transition to 32 beds on the Lunder Building's 9th floor.
