Improving the lives of young children and adults with physical disabilities and other medical conditions requiring the need for hospital level care
Welcome to the Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation
Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children Visit
Pappas recently received a well-deserved shout out from Margaret R. Cooke, Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. She recently toured the hospital and had this to say:
“I recently had the pleasure of visiting staff at the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children (PRHC), one of our four public health hospitals. Located in Canton, PRHC specializes in serving children and young adults with physical and cognitive disabilities as well as chronic and medically complex conditions. Thank you to all of the dedicated staff at PRHC, including their new leadership team helmed by Dr. Fatima Watt, who do so much to support and assist the children they work with in achieving their optimal level of independence”.
Pappas is a truly remarkable place with an amazing, dedicated, and loving staff who positively impact the lives of its students every day! WAY TO GO, PAPPAS!
Since 1904, the Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation has been raising funds for the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children so that it can offer the students it serves with programs and services it would not otherwise have access to. While the state of Massachusetts ensures that the students medical and educational needs are met in a safe, healthy environment, it is only through these funds, privately raised, that students are provided with the tools and experiences they need to thrive and fully realize their potential.
It’s here you’ll find out all the ways the Foundation has helped improve the lives of young children and adults with physical disabilities and other medical conditions requiring the need for hospital level care.

As you know, the 2022 Canton Road Race was held on Sunday, September 25th at the Trillium Brewery in Canton, MA. It was a great success!
Your gift will provide students with:
- New equipment: To support the many recreational opportunities we offer the students
- Switch Devices: Many of our students have complex needs, are physically limited and rely on augmentative devices for communication. Switch devices help students to access a computer, play independently, communicate with their families and peers and access a wide range of educational opportunities
- Mobility Equipment: Our students benefit greatly from all terrain wheelchairs (to get out into the fresh air and visit our farm animals), adaptive tricycles, and individually designed mobility equipment
- Educational and Therapeutic Games: Our students love to play games with their friends and not only is it fun and engaging, but games are fundamental for the progression and stimulation of critical mind and body functions
