Joint Statement from Lynn Nicholas and John Erwin on behalf of the Massachusetts Hospital Association and Conference of Boston Teaching Hospitals regarding the Boston Marathon

April 16, 2013

“On behalf of our hospital community, MHA and COBTH would like to express our heartfelt sorrow and sympathy to the victims and families of yesterday’s tragic events at the Boston Marathon. Our thoughts are with those families who lost loved ones, those who were injured and those indirectly affected. We want to commend the heroic efforts of hospitals, first responders, and the local, state, and federal agencies that collaborated to ensure that the injured received care in the immediate aftermath of the event. Those on the frontline helped save lives, many without regard to their own personal safety.

In particular, we want to express our appreciation and admiration for the professional and dedicated efforts of all hospitals and their staff that worked to care for these patients under extraordinary conditions. Even as the care for victims who were gravely injured continues, hospitals are working together and collectively with the state to identify additional resources that can be extended to support the broader community both at this time and in the coming weeks.”
