Today’s the official opening day for Rush’s new outpatient cancer center, the Rush University Cancer Center. Shaped with input from caregivers and patients at Rush, the center is a celebration of the power of comprehensive, patient-centered care to tap the healing potential within each cancer patient.
Throughout its planning, countless patients, staff and clinicians made this new center possible. One of them was Lynne “Angel” Harvey — Radio Hall of Fame producer, wife of broadcaster Paul Harvey and former Rush patient — whose philanthropic contribution introduced the concept of the patient’s experience in the initial discussions about the center. Here Lois Means, RN, a hematology nurse in the Rush University Cancer Center, remembers Mrs. Harvey and her legacy.
