Burlington Police and Fire to Honor Lahey Employees with Special Event on Monday


Burlington first responders are going to give a big salute to the healthcare workers at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. 


Fire Chief Michael Patterson and Police Chief Michael Kent said in a release they are pleased to announce that the Burlington Police and Fire Departments will be among several first responder agencies throughout the region paying a special visit to Lahey Hospital & Medical Center of Burlington next week to show their appreciation to the hospital’s employees.


At 1 p.m. on Monday, The Burlington Police and Fire Departments, which are organizing the event, will be among several neighboring police and fire departments, EMS and EMA departments and organizations throughout the region to drive a parade around the hospital. Boston MedFlight will also be participating.


The timing of the rally is designed to cater to multiple shifts as well as the administrative staff of the hospital. 


As a special treat, Boston Bruins National Anthem singer Todd Angilly will be singing the National Anthem at the hospital's east lobby entrance at 1 p.m.


Public safety vehicles will be passing the main hospital entrance following the National Anthem, and will then drive by the east lobby entrance and then continue around the outer ring road. Smaller vehicles will then drive by the Emergency Department entrance and then continue back out to the outer ring road.


Vehicles will conclude by driving past the rear loading dock of the hospital, which is in view of the ICU, before exiting onto Burlington Mall Road. 


“Hospital workers, whether doctors, nurses, technicians or other staff, have been working tirelessly to take care of our communities since the beginning of this pandemic,” Chief Patterson said. “This event will be a great opportunity for first responders to show their support for them, and we look forward to a strong turnout.”
