Pulsar Award winners -
There are three key forces that have come into play in the Radiation Oncology Department that I believe led up to the selection of the Radiation Oncology Department being selected for the Pulsar Award.
First, I see the excellence in the quality of care provided. MGHS has coupled the best people to run the treatment equipment.
Secondly, the people in the department are a perfect blend of professionalism and compassion. Patients being treated through the Radiation Oncology Department know that they are more than just being treated, but rather that they are cared for.
Thirdly, but not last, is the department's ability to think creatively outside of the box. Innovative thinking has allowed us to upgrade our treatment planning system at no additional cost. This involved very creative thinking of current support/maintenance contracts for our old system and how to apply those resources towards a lease of the new system.
We as a department are always looking for opportunities and ways to improve the services that we provide and how we might do things more efficiently and cost effective.
Walter Scanlon, RN, Director of Radiation Oncology
