Hospital 57357 would not have gained its position of leadership it presently enjoys without Patricia Pruden’s numerous contributions. Nurse Pruden has been an active partner and contributor to the hospital ever since its inception. Originally coming to Egypt to help Egyptian nurses upgrade-nursing care in the then newly established pediatric oncology wards at the National Cancer Institute, she soon became involved in the setting up of the first clinical pharmacy in Egypt, the blood bank upgrade, pediatric oncology protocols, and in structuring the volunteers department at the NCI. Yet, the crowning of her efforts revealed itself in the successful establishment of the Hospital. She left an impact on every aspect of its completion: fundraising, design, construction phases, policies and procedures

Early on, she was involved in 3 of the most crucial issues for 57357’s development and progress: a comprehensive long term sustainability plan, the establishment of the U.S. based fundraising affiliate, Egypt Cancer Network, the setting up of a Health Sciences Training Academy and the design of our new capacity expansion projects
