Nuclear Medicine laboratory manager Marissa Bartlett has said goodbye to #RBWH after almost 25 years! 🤗 Marissa said shes going to miss being part of the valuable work the team here does, and shared with us one of her best memories from the job. 📈🥼🔬

Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive material (radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose or treat a variety of diseases and conditions. Materials and compounds must be used with the patient the same day theyre created in the lab, Marissa said. 

A baby in Sydney was very ill and doctors needed a particular compound thats only created in one of three places in Australia, including RBWH.

Without this compound, the team in Sydney would have to remove the babys entire pancreas, leaving the baby a diabetic for life. With the compound, they could determine if only a small part of the pancreas needed to be removed therefore the baby could live without the condition.

The whole department pulled together to make this possible. Some came in at around midnight to create and test the compound in time to get it to the airport and flown to Sydney. 

It was a great result! The organ was only partially affected, once the doctors removed this the baby was happy and healthy!

Join us in wishing Marissa all the best - thank you for your work Marissa! 👏

What a rewarding career! Thank you for your dedication to helping others and I wish you all the best for the future.

I had the great privilege of working with Marissa for the hot lab expansion some 6/7 years ago. Not only is she a wealth of knowledge but was willing (and obviously highly capable) of imparting that knowledge on others. I wish you the very best Marissa. 💜

Congratulations for your dedication for all these years. It is people like you who keep us healthy. Thank you for your service and enjoy your retirement. You are amazing.❤🧡

Congratulations Marissa. A wonderful career

Have a great life. And thanks for your knowledge

Best wishes for the future Marissa

What a wonderful career. Thank you.

All the best…

All the best 💜🙏🏼💜

Thank you !!
