News & Events

  • A Brave Decision for Lifesaving Care Helps Baby Elias Thrive

    Shortly after birth, Elias Asry was fussy and feverish. After a few tests and several attempts to calm him, he was diagnosed with early onset septicemia from E. coli bacteria in his bloodstream. To help him heal and get much needed oxygen back into his body, Elias was placed on a form of life support called ECMO. Four months after discharge, Elias is happy and healthy.

  • A Strong Support System Away From Home Helps Baby Lucy Thrive

    Julie Blake was 7 1/2 months pregnant when her daughter, Lucy, was diagnosed with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). When she was transferred to MGHfC from Dresden, Maine, almost four hours away, multiple teams from MGHfC, including Fetal Care, the NICU and Pediatric Surgery, came together to form the support system that the Blakes needed while far away from home.

  • Finding Home in a New World

    Claudine Humure arrived at MassGeneral Hospital for Children from Rwanda for bone cancer treatment. More than improved health, she also gained a new family.

  • Family-Centered Grand Rounds Pinpoint Role of Communication in Care

    The third-annual Family-Centered Grand Rounds, “The A Team— Building an Effective Healthcare Team,” honed in on the importance of team communication in care.

  • Harrison's Story

    Harrison was just 3 weeks old when he was first admitted to MassGeneral Hospital for Children following an unexpected tracheotomy. His care has spanned 8 pediatric subspecialties and included repair of a hiatal hernia and a re-do of a Nissen Fundoplication—a surgical procedure to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease. Harrison's mom tells their story in this wonderful letter.
