Spaulding To Host ‘Boston Strong’ Celebration Tonight

The grand opening of the new Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown scheduled for April 21, 2013 has been postponed in light of recent events following the Boston Marathon bombing. Located at the corner of 16th Street and First Avenue, the new $  220 million, 300,000 sq. ft. medical facility will replace Spaulding’s current building at 125 Nashua St., Boston.

Though a community open house on Sunday was postponed Friday in the midst of a citywide lockdown and manhunt for suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, Spaulding Rehabilitation Center will go ahead with other plans to celebrate its grand opening in the Charlestown Navy Yard this weekend.

Spaulding representatives had planned to hold a small thank you gala for donors, staff and local and state officials Friday night, but the event was canceled. Following Friday’s arrest, an even bigger celebration has been organized for tonight, with a performance by the Boston Pops, speaker Mayor Tom Menino and a “rousing sing-a-long” of “Sweet Caroline”—a special nod to the city’s “Boston Strong” spirit.

“I’ve never been more proud to be part of Boston and Spaulding,” David Storto, president of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, said in a statement. “Our gathering tonight will reaffirm the spirit of resilience both in the people of our city and the drive of our patients and caregivers who never give up.” read more
