In the City of Boston, when one of our officers is injured in the line of duty, they are transported by our partners at Boston EMS to some of the very best hospitals in the world where they are cared for by the finest nurses the medical community has to offer. On this #NationalNursesDay, we thank all of the hard-working nurses and all those on the medical frontlines ensuring patient care here within our large hospital community and those helping to save lives every day in cities across the county.

From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, your courage, compassion and selfless service has been nothing short of extraordinary. You have stood strong, bearing the brunt of an unprecedented battle while knowingly putting your lives on the line while treating patients in the fight for theirs.

When people talk about heroes, especially the ones who choose not to wear capes, we immediately think of all those who don the hospital blues as we wish you a very happy National Nurses Day.
