NEWTON-WELLESLEY HOSPITAL EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP
WITH MASS GENERAL CANCER CENTER, RENAMES CANCER CENTER
NEWTON, Mass. (January 24, 2019)—Newton-Wellesley Hospital (NWH) has recently expanded its partnership with the Mass General Cancer Center (MGCC) to provide NWH patients access to the entire team of MGCC experts including specialists and subspecialists, the latest research and the most advanced technology, and medical, radiation, and surgical oncology services. Over the years, MGCC specialists have seen patients at NWH and this partnership builds on that longstanding relationship. To reflect this deepening partnership with the MGCC, NWH has renamed its cancer center the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley.
“Newton-Wellesley Hospital has a deep commitment to providing expert, compassionate cancer care to the communities we serve,” said NWH President Dr. Michael R. Jaff. “This unique relationship creates a virtual corridor between our two organizations, giving patients direct access to the Mass General Cancer Center in Boston if ever needed.”
Through the support of donors and NWH surgeon Dr. James Vernon and his wife Joan, who passed away from cancer in 2005, NWH opened the Vernon Cancer Center in 2009. Dr. Vernon’s dedication and guidance were instrumental to the center’s success, and his support of the center’s evolution to meet the health care needs of community residents continues today. To honor Joan and Dr. Vernon, and all our dedicated cancer donors, for their enduring dedication to patient care, the hospital will name its cancer care facility the Joan and James Vernon Cancer Care Pavilion.
“I am so deeply appreciative of Dr. Vernon’s commitment to NWH and to our patients, and for his continued role in evolving the exceptional cancer care we provide to those living in our community,” said Dr. Jaff. “The legacy of Dr. Vernon and his beloved wife Joan will live on for generations to come.”
The newly-named Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley will build upon a rich tradition, as the MGCC Radiation Oncology Department has provided services at NWH for several years. This group will continue to provide patients seamless access to experts, all of whom will be MGCC clinicians, state of the art equipment, clinical trials, and advanced medical therapies. A multi-disciplinary care team comprised of nurse navigators, oncologists, specialists and sub-specialists, oncology nurses, social workers, nutritionists, hematologists and others, will collaborate to provide exceptional care.
“By growing the expertise of the Mass General Cancer Center and integrating it further into our community setting, we’re continuing to provide outstanding care, as well as expanded specialized resources, for our patients,” said Lawrence Blaszkowsky, MD, Medical Director, Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley. “We understand that receiving a new diagnosis of cancer can be very stressful and we are devoted to easing the process every step of the way.”
In addition to medical, radiation and surgical oncology, the MGCC at Newton-Wellesley will continue to provide a variety of supportive care services that help patients with emotional and spiritual needs during treatment, including:
“The opening of the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley is a big step forward for cancer care in the community. We have worked with our colleagues at NWH for years, including operating our Mass General Radiation Oncology program at NWH, and we are thrilled to be evolving our long-standing partnership formalizing our working relationship,” said David P. Ryan, MD, Clinical Director, Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center; Chief, Hematology/Oncology, MGH.
“Over the coming year, more and more of our Mass General Cancer Center treatment programs will be offered at Newton-Wellesley, with greater collaboration between our institutions and easier access for our patients to the latest therapies. Our shared and ultimate goal is to provide each and every patient the best chance for the best outcome.”
