As local hospitals continue to treat the victims of Monday’s double bombings at the Boston marathon, staff and other medical personnel have started to recount the scene after the blasts.

We’ve been closely tracking hospital reports out of Boston, paying particular attention to our member hospital Boston Medical Center (BMC), a Level 1 trauma center that treated 23 victims. Staff from member UMass Memorial Health Care also were stationed at the marathon’s medical tent and provided care to victims in the immediate aftermath.

Below you’ll find a list of coverage so far that will be updated as new reports are released.

Our thoughts continue to be with all of the victims, their families, and the hospitals and other providers who are caring for them.

  • Executive vice chair of emergency medicine at BMC Dr. Andrew Ulrich praises staff for their dedication in the hours after the tragedy, saying that he has “never been prouder to work here.”
  • Video: Dr. Peter Burke, chief of trauma surgery at BMC outlines the conditions of the patients treated at the hospital, including that of a 5-year-old boy, who is one of two patients who remain in critical condition there.
  • Audio: BMC emergency room physician Dr. Ron Medzon offers a moving first-person account of the immediate aftermath of the bombing at BMC.
  • The New York Times tells the story of Jeff Bauman, the first patient who arrived at BMC for treatment after the blasts. Bauman experienced blunt trauma, and both of his legs were amputated at the knee.
  • The Boston Globe hailed local hospitals as “world class,” praising them for their “heroic response” and for providing “some of the most accurate information available in the first hours after the explosions.”
