Darcy Daniels is a historian, writer, and mother of two. Her blog, Brave Fragile Warriors, addresses parenting kids with chronic illness. She loves that the hospital and staff do everything possible to make her and her child comfortable and cared for when her child is being seen at MGHfC. She is also relieved to know that as her child grows, her care can be easily transitioned to the adult hospital, which is especially valuable since her child’s care is complex. To her, the pediatric hospital feels “intimate, like a family,” and knows that when she comes to MGHfC, that the clinicians will take the time to explain things thoroughly and truly have the family’s best interests in mind when planning care.
Alixandra Nozzolillo is a communications professional, writer, and mother of two. She has worked in public health policy for children with special healthcare needs, cancer research laboratories, and clinical research around chronic health conditions. She values her incredible relationship with the MGHfC staff and finds it exceptional that they truly respect her values as a parent. She loves that the hospital tailors her children’s medical care to both meet her family’s expectations and maintain what’s best for the children, taking everything into account when planning the next steps for health conditions. She also believes the hospital does an excellent job of ensuring that people of all cultures and backgrounds are respected by staff, and seamlessly incorporating family values into each child’s healthcare plan.
Erin Quinney is a mother of three children, two of whom have received care at Mass General Hospital for Children. She expresses her gratitude for MassGeneral Hospital for Children, saying, “my children have been treated at other hospitals but have truly only been cared for here.” As a result of the size and culture of MGHfC, she has had the opportunity to develop strong and meaningful relationships with her children’s providers. Above all, she’s grateful for the care and support she and her family have received. “Every time I look at my kids, I’m thankful for the community that we have at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children.”
Matthew McGuiness feels very lucky to have worked with Mass General and Mass General Hospital for Children during his daughter’s birth and through the entirety of her life to-date. He is extremely happy with the care his daughter has received at the hospital, through her time in the NICU, diagnosis with a rare medical condition, several hospitalizations, and a recent transplant procedure.
