Nurse practitioner Mary Lucy Mattei poses in the Infusion Clinic at the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute in Mobile, Ala., on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015.
Mobile, Ala. -- Mary Lucy Mattei, a nurse practitioner specializing in women’s health, has joined the Gynecologic Oncology Service at the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute. Mattei, 35, has eight years of experience as a labor and delivery nurse, five of which were spent at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Mobile. She has also worked as a nurse practitioner for the Mobile County Health Department and a private ob-gyn practice in Mobile.
“We’re excited to have Mary Lucy join our GYN cancer team,” said Dr. Rodney Rocconi, chief of the Gynecologic Oncology Service at MCI. “She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm that will resonate with all of our patients.”
Mattei said that treating young girls, some of whom were pregnant, fueled a desire to specialize in women’s health during her master’s studies at the University of South Alabama. Her work at MCI will round out her experience in women’s health, she said.
“I’ve worked with patients through the beginning of life and the middle of life in difficult and happy times,” she said. “I have loved it since I stepped in the door.”
A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse who has advanced education and more than 600 clinical hours of supervised clinical training in a health-care specialty area.
A native of Canton, Miss., Mattei received a bachelor of nursing degree from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. She and her husband, Ryan, live in Mobile and have two daughters.
Established in 2008, the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute is the only academic-based cancer research and treatment facility in the upper Gulf Coast region. It is located near USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital at 1660 Springhill Ave. in Mobile, Ala.
