Lawrence Memorial Hospital, which became a member of the MCA this past summer, will be among the hospitals to benefit from the new service.

The hospital does already have a full-time social worker on staff in its Oncology Center to provide emotional support for patients and oversee support groups, said Sheryle D’Amico, LMH’s vice president for its Physician Division.

But as a psychologist with a doctorate, Krigel may be able to offer some additional therapy options for patients, D’Amico said, and the staff is excited to see what will be available. "I would see it in a way complementing some of what we do already," D’Amico said.
