Lisa Leung-TatLisa Leung-Tat
AMMP Membership Chair

Lisa Leung-Tat began her tenure at MGH in November of 2012. After years in varying accounting roles she sought out a career that would be more meaningful to her while offering a sense of fulfillment. That was immediately realized when she was hired as a Patient Service Coordinator (PSC)II of a busy oncology unit in the Adult Infusion Unit of the Cancer Center. While there, Lisa discovered the value of patient-staff interaction and how that helped to ultimately shape a patients visit and overall experience for those going through a challenging period.

One year later, Lisa was promoted to Administrative/Environmental Operations Manager of the very unit she started in. In this role, she is the manager of the Unit Service Associate (USA) and Patient Service Coordinator staff and oversees the daily operations of the Infusion Unit on Yawkey 8E. Within the past five years, her role has expanded to include management of Phlebotomist and Medical Assistants in four additional practices within the Cancer Center.

Lisa holds a BA in psychology with a minor in cognitive science and a graduate certificate in healthcare management, both from UMass Boston. She is also a 500-hour Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor and currently teaches part time at a yoga studio in the community. Lisa was also a recipient of our AMMP scholarship in 2018 and 2019.

Lisa’s leadership style is grounded in uplifting and empowering staff which she achieves by collaboratively working with others to intentionally bring about change and facilitate wellbeing within the work environment. She continues to explore the broad landscape within the MGH community and eagerly welcomes this new chapter as an AMMP Membership Chair. She is proud and honored to be a part of this important work with AMMP and the MGH institution.
