For some positive news today, Boston Hope announced that their last two patients have been released. Just last week, we wrote that Boston Hope was longer accepting new patients
According to The Boston Globe, the two patients, 68-year-old Joseph Murphy and 78-year-old Oger Julien were released to cheers and applause. Joseph had spent more than thirty days at Boston Hope, and Oger a little over a week.
While the last patients have been released, Boston Hope will remain accessible in the event the city needs to use it again.
In collaboration with the state of Massachusetts, the City of Boston and Boston Health Care for the Homeless, Boston Hope is a field hospital for those recovering from the coronavirus. The center opened up care in early April and treated more than 700 coronavirus patients since April. Additionally, the center was up and running in less than one week.
