Beloved physician was a dedicated member of the hospital medical staff for over 35 years
Marlborough, MA. (August 8, 2013) – Later this month, on August 22 from 5 pm to 7pm, patients, friends, family and colleagues of the late Steven E. Salomon, MD, will gather at the UMass Memorial Cancer Center at Marlborough Hospital for a very special event—the unveiling of the Cancer Center’s new Infusion Suite which will be named in his memory. Dr. Salomon passed away unexpectedly in 2012 but left behind a legacy of caring and compassion that is still readily remembered to this day.
“Steve was a kind and compassionate physician who was a vital and vibrant part of the Marlborough Hospital medical staff for 35 years,” explained Candra Szymanski, interim president and CEO at Marlborough Hospital. “It was his commitment and dedication to his patients that made him such a standout. He was also very well respected by the hospital medical staff. He was associated with the hematology/oncology service at the hospital for over three and a half decades and was one of the major advocates and supporters for the building of Marlborough Hospital’s new Cancer Center. In fact, it was his dream to have a place where patients could have the latest in cancer care and treatment, close to home, in a compassionate and healing environment,” Szymanski continued. “He wanted them to have the opportunity to enroll into clinical trials and to be able to receive radiation therapy in their own community.”
“With our new, state-of-the-art Cancer Center slated to officially open later this fall,” added Ellen Carlucci, vice president of development, marketing and communications at the hospital, “Dr. Salomon’s dream has come true. The naming of this Infusion Suite in his memory is our way of paying homage to his dedication and life work.”
