MGH Hotline for Friday, March 23, 2012

  • Caring for patients – in every sense of the word

    A PATIENT COMING to meet with an MGH physician about the pain in his chest enters the revolving doors of the White Lobby.
  • Appointments announced

    THE MGH WILL WELCOME new chiefs for the Department of Neurology and the Department of Urology later this spring.
  • Tender visit at MGHfC

    “OH MY GOD it’s Tuukka! It’s Tuukka,” yelled Josh Hume, 18, as he watched the Boston Bruins goaltender walk into a nearby pediatric patient’s room on Ellison 18.
  • Child life specialists empower, support children and families

    MEMBERS OF MassGeneral Hospital for Children’s (MGHfC) Child Life Team marked the 30th anniversary of Child Life Month by hosting a table in the White Corridor March 22.
  • MGH resident collaborates with Lebanese university

    Hasan Merali, MD, followed the 80-year-old patient to her home, a small, dark concrete room within the Shatila Refugee Camp in Lebanon, where rats scurried across the floor. During the home visit, the woman told of losing her entire family to the Shatila massacre in 1982 and noted she now is dependent for medical care on the kindness of doctors like Merali who volunteer at the camp’s outreach clinic.
  • Parking availability for patients and visitors a top priority

    PATIENTS AND VISITORS coming into the MGH have a lot on their minds. They may be preparing for surgery, nervous about their doctor’s appointment or concerned about a family or friend’s recovery. One thing that shouldn’t be of concern is finding parking to get to their appointment in a timely, convenient way.
