Pappas DedicationBy Canton Citizen
Dozens of students, staff, and dignitaries gathered on Randolph Street last Wednesday for the official dedication of the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children, formerly known as the Massachusetts Hospital School. The state-run school, which educates students with severe disabilities, was renamed in June in honor of the late Dr. Arthur Pappas, the longtime chairman of the MHS board of trustees, a pioneering orthopedic surgeon and pillar of UMass Medical School, and former medical director for the Boston Red Sox. Participants at the October 26 dedication ceremony included Dr. Pappas’ wife, Martha; state Representative Bill Galvin, who filed the legislation to change the name of the school; Monica Bharel, commissioner of the Department of Public Health; and Pappas CEO Brian Devin, along with several other state officials and members of the Pappas community.
