‘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
