On Friday, June 11, three McLean Hospital staff members joined some 200 other health care workers and first responders for a special event on the USS Constitution in Boston. The event recognized the extraordinary contributions made by these professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sophie S. Forte, MS, ANP-BC, WHNP-BC, nurse practitioner in Internal Medicine and Infection Control, Charles Liu, pharmacist in the Department of Pharmacy, and James Keller, carpentry supervisor in Facilities, represented McLean at the special tribute.
Other honorees represented Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Medical Center, Boston Emergency Medical Services, and other local hospitals and emergency organizations.
“I feel very honored to have been selected,” said Forte. “So many people, especially in health care, have gone above and beyond over the past year. It’s unfortunate that even a ship of this size did not have room for more!”
