Message From The Commissioner

Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children Visit 

Dear Friends,

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!


Improving the lives of young children and adults with physical disabilities and other medical conditions requiring the need for hospital level care.
