Healthcare execs honor Boston first responders

Yesterday's United Way Healthcare Leadership Breakfast, which was originally scheduled for the day after the Boston Marathon bombings, honored healthcare workers as first responders, the Boston Business Journal reported. Healthcare executives from New England Baptist Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, among others, recognized the nurses, doctors, EMTs, hospital food service personnel and other healthcare workers who responded to the attacks and continued to serve victims for weeks on end. Healthcare leaders in Boston have been showing their support by pledging financial aid to bomb victims and offering free counseling to those coping with the tragedy. Article
