Feb. 5-7 marks the 40th anniversary of the storm that brought 27 inches of snow, 70-mph winds and power outages to the city of Boston and surrounding region – including the MGH. But, as always, the MGHers of 1978 prevailed. Employees walked and skied through miles of waist-deep snow to ensure the highest quality of patient care, many staying at the hospital to work through multiple shifts. Below is the MGH Hotline from Feb. 16, 1978, covering the efforts of these brave MGHers, as well as photos from the storm. *Click on the Hotline image below to enlarge/download the full PDF.
