Cynthia Carney

2014, Health Systems Management, MHA


Cynthia Carney, MHA '14, is an Administrative Officer, Goodwin House Palliative Care and Hospice.

I chose to attend George Mason because, in reviewing MHA programs, I thought that its curriculum would best serve my needs. The MHA program gave me deeper insights into the nature and future of the health care world and how to better navigate the system by providing me with stimulating and challenging didactic and experiential opportunities. As the executive manager of a 10-member team that delivers palliative care and hospice services to a 1,500-member continuing care retirement community, I am able to integrate my clinical, managerial, marketing, and professional expertise and training to make sure that those with life-limiting illness receive compassionate and expert care that will ensure their quality of life for as long as they live.
