Two nurses at City of Hope, which is building a $1 billion cancer-research-and-treatment campus in Irvine, have been named among three finalists of this year’s CURE Extraordinary Healer award.
The national award by CURE Media Group recognizes oncology nurses whose compassion and expertise improve the lives of their patients.
Finalist Kerry O’Neil works as a nursing manager at City of Hope clinics in Orange County. She says she enjoys being a patient educator, especially to those with a new diagnosis.
Fellow finalist Mary Colasuonno became a registered nurse at City of Hope to pick up her mother’s unfulfilled dream of being a nurse.
City of Hope’s new campus at Barranca and Alton parkways is slated to be completed in 2025.
