Medical Evaluation Center Staff

Formerly known as the Medical Unit, Massachusetts Eye and Ear’s Medical Evaluation Center (MEC) ensures that patients are at their healthiest prior to surgery, and that their medical needs continue to be met for the duration of their hospitalization.

The MEC consists of physicians from Massachusetts General Hospital, several nurse practitioners, and administrative staff. The MEC performs a variety of functions including preoperative medical evaluations for surgery at Mass. Eye and Ear, and collaborative follow-up care for those patients that are admitted. Nurse Practitioners are available for inpatient follow-up Monday through Friday during regular office hours.

The MEC is located on the 9th floor of the main campus. To schedule an appointment please call 617-573-2720 and have the following information available: name, medical record number, procedure, date and time of surgery, anesthesia, type of admission, and any medical issues.
