Donation Drive
During the month of March, Country Nissan donated $10 for every Altima or Versa Note  est driven, and $100 for every Altima or Versa Note purchased, to the Children’s Miracle network and Baystate Children’s Hospital. Thanks to customer involvement, Country Nissan was able to donate $2,010 toward the work of Baystate Children’s  hospital.  To date, Country Nissan has raised a total of $14,290 in its four-year partnership with  baystate Children’s Hospital.

“We are thrilled to be able to make this donation,” said Carla Cosenzi, president of Country  nissan. “We look forward to having many more years to give back to the community that  as always supported us over the years.”


Home Stretch
When it opens this fall, the $9.3 million, 16,400-square-foot Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson will be a thriving hub of unified and expanded cancer services, hospital officials say. Avital Carlis (right), administrative director of the cancer center, recently took donors to the project’s capital campaign on a hard-hat tour of the facility, including what will become the infusion bay where patients receive chemotherapy (pictured). In addition, the cancer center will include up to 12 exam rooms where patients and families meet with medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, and other members of their care team; high-speed video connections allowing consultations with Mass General Cancer Center physicians; and a new pharmacy. Expanded services will include access to clinical trials at Mass General Cancer Center, implementation of Mass General’s multi-disciplinary care model, a broader array of innovative treatment plans in medical and radiation oncology, and access to genetic screening and counseling.
