The Yvonne L. Munn Center for Nursing Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital provides an infrastructure that promotes innovation and mobilization of resources, both funding and development, to support research initiatives that advance clinical practice and optimize quality patient-centered outcomes. The Munn Center, housed within the Institute for Patient Care, was inspired by the vision and dedication of Yvonne L. Munn, RN, MSN, a nurse leader at MGH from 1984-1993, and her desire to advance nursing research at MGH. The official dedication of the Munn Center in May, 2008 acknowledged the hospital’s commitment to nursing and interdisciplinary research collaborations that foster high quality, cost-effective, patient-family centric care.
