For the past 45 years, Barbara Cecchi, RN, BSN, Manager of Case Management, has warmed the hearts of many patients and coworkers along her career journey at both Leonard Morse Hospital (LMH) and Framingham Union Hospital (FUH). Barbara started at LMH as an ICU nurse and then became involved with case management at both hospitals, eventfully landing her most recent position as Manager of Case Management, which she has held for the last five years. She has been in various roles related to case management for about 30 years.

Barbara’s final day at the hospital was April 12 as she enters into retirement. She looks forward to spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren as well as taking small trips with her husband. And with the spring weather approaching, she cannot wait to get outside to go bike riding and walking on trails. She also will enjoy reading and getting back into sewing during her newfound time.

Barbara says she has made life-long friends at MetroWest and will miss them dearly. But she acknowledges they will make time for get-togethers and going out for dinner. At her retirement party, she received flowers, a celebratory cake and cards from co-workers and friends.

MetroWest Medical Center thanks Barbara for her years of service and her incredible commitment to us. We will certainly miss Barbara and wish her all the best for a wonderful retirement!
