‘We Have Never Needed Them More’: Boston Celebrates Opening of New Rehabilitation Hospital

Boston Mayor Tom Menino, who was himself a patient at Spaulding this past fall, spoke at the opening gala on Saturday, April 20, 2013, about the staff’s compassion and endurance. “We’re so lucky to have Spaulding in our city,” he said.

At the grand opening of a new, state-of-the-art facility where clinicians will help people adapt to amputations and other traumatic injuries, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and others celebrated the strength of the city of Boston and the strength of the human spirit Saturday night.

Benefactors, hospital staff and city officials gathered Saturday night at a tent set up outside the new nine-story Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

Since its founding in 1970, Spaulding has provided in- and out-patient services for people recovering from a range of issues, including spinal cord and brain injuries, strokes, amputations and burns.

Some of the hospital’s clinicians were waiting at the finish line when the two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon on Monday, and the staff will be there in their new facility when several of the people injured in the blasts begin the process of healing and adapting to their devastating injuries. read more

PHOTOS: Boston Celebrates Bombing Suspect’s Capture

Boston Conservatory students (left to right) Matthew Rodin, Gavin Parmley, Beka Burnham, Rachel Giannattasio and Alexis Schear celebrate the capture of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on Friday, April 19, 2013, near Copley Square.

After a long day trapped indoors under a citywide lockdown, Boston residents were eager to hit the streets Friday night to celebrate the apprehension of the two suspects believed responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing and to celebrate the end of what many called a “very long week.”

By 11 p.m., Boston Common was filled with hundreds of people, many college-aged, who stood around in clusters wearing and waving American flags, cheering and breaking into song—“God Bless America,” “The Star-Spangled Banner” and that old Boston favorite, “Sweet Caroline.”

A huge group of people filled the Common’s bandstand, climbing the poles and one another’s shoulders, hanging over the edge and leading chants of “USA, USA!” and “BPD! BPD!”

Another chant: “We got him!”

Others lined up to shake the hands of Boston police officers who stood off to the side keeping an eye on the crowd, while others shouted, “Thank you! God bless!” at them. read more
