Lawsuit to block Boston Children’s Hospital tower dismissed

October 27, 2017

A Massachusetts Superior Court judge rejected the suit brought by a group fighting the demolition of a garden at Boston Children’s Hospital, according to an article on the Boston Globe website.

Supporters of Prouty Garden sued to block the hospital from building a new clinical tower on the green space.

Children’s received state approval to construct the new building and began the project late last year, but the legal challenges continued, the article said.

“The plaintiffs may disagree with how the Department (of Public Health) resolved those concerns, but that is not a basis to overturn its decision,” the judge wrote in her ruling.

Children’s is planning to add gardens and other green space to its refurbished Longwood campus. The hospital is also planning to expand outpatient medical services at a separate site in Brookline.
