For our city of Boston and the Commonwealth, Spaulding is the go-to provider of post-acute care at all times. Now more than ever, our impact on patients’ recovery is being felt, with profound urgency, in the face of the coronavirus.
One of the biggest steps Spaulding has taken is opening our COVID-19 Special Units. In what one doctor humbly called a “mild Herculean effort,” our care teams worked behind the scenes 24/7 to transform two floors of Spaulding Hospital Cambridge into COVID-19 recovery floors with a total of 120 beds. Daily, people recovering from COVID-19 are finding their strength at Spaulding. Still, like all healthcare providers in this crisis, we are called on every day to do more—and we need your help.
