Massachusetts General Hospital employees share how they have advanced by reaching out for new challenges; how they have been supported by hospital benefits and programs; and how they have participated in the hospital's ongoing innovation in support of patient care.
"When I graduated from Bentley University in 2010, the job market was tough. After some part-time and temporary positions that didn’t show much promise, I applied and was accepted by Bulfinch Temporary Service, the organization that fills temporary roles across all of the Partners hospitals including Mass General."
"In November 2010, after completing my medical assisting program, I left my family and friends in New Hampshire and moved to Boston to begin my career as a medical assistant at Mass General’s Internal Medicine Associates (IMA). The move was a little scary for me because I didn’t know anyone in the area, but my IMA colleagues in Urgent Care quickly became my close friends."
"When our MassGeneral Care Management Program expanded and added another part-time community resource specialist, I was ready to take on the responsibility of training and supervising this new person. As a manager, I was then able to take courses in coaching and business management through Mass General’s Leadership Academy."
"Our PICU has a very diverse patient population, from newborns up to 20-year old patients. It’s never the same day twice in terms of the cases we see, and increasingly, we are caring for patients with multisystem issues. The resources and support Mass General offers to help us keep up with that complexity are exceptional."
"Mass General is a great place to learn about kitchen operations – Nutrition and Food Services at the hospital is a huge operation. On any given day the Patient Tray Line is preparing meals for 500-600 patients, making sure that patients who have special diets get everything on their tray they are supposed to have."
"I started working at the Mass General Emergency Department as a patient care associate (nursing assistant) while I was a nursing student at Simmons College. Twenty years later, as chief nurse practitioner for Mass General’s ED Observation Units, I am doing what I dreamed of doing as a student yet my journey as a Nurse at Mass General has also been more varied and rewarding than I could have imagined."
