  • Blizzard of ‘78

    This week marks the 40th anniversary of the blizzard of 1978. From Feb. 5-7, 1978, the storm pummeled New England, bringing with it 27 inches of snow, 70 mph winds and power outages throughout Boston and the surrounding region.

  • Change begins with self

    On Jan. 26 MGH staff gathered to reflect upon the words and ideas of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The East Garden Room was filled with life as Elder Hu White and the Gospel Unlimited Ensemble raised their voices proclaiming, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!”

  • The power of patient and family voices

    MGH Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) recently hosted an event celebrating the voices of patients and families through storytelling – showcasing powerful care journeys, strength found in a patient/provider relationship and the roles of trust and partnership.

  • #GetWaivered

    With limited resources and access to treatments for addiction, emergency rooms across the country have become the first point of contact for many people with substance use disorders, but the lack of opportunity for follow-up leaves many emergency providers powerless when a patient is ready to begin their path to recovery.

  • Music with a purpose

    More than 100 people enjoyed beautiful operatic melodies, sounds of cellos, pianos and the Chinese lute, and Vietnamese delicacies at the eighth annual Vietnam Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) Classical Benefit Concert.

  • Safety culture at the core of the MGH

    Some 6,000 dedicated direct MGH caregivers took the time to make their voices heard by participating in the 2017 Hospital Survey on Patient Safety, reflecting the strong commitment to patient safety at the MGH.

  • Infection protection

    U.S. Sen. Ed Markey convened a press conference Feb. 2 at the Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation to discuss the influenza virus that is filling emergency rooms across the country, and to introduce a bill to fund research for a universal flu vaccine.

  • All-star medicine

    For New England Patriots fans, Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII loss was not the outcome hoped for following the team’s great season. Throughout the year, a group of dedicated MGH clinicians were an important presence on the field, providing excellent medical care to the team.
