Tufts partners with local hotels to secure rooms for employees during blizzard

Boston-based Tufts Medical Center is working to give employees safe and convenient access to the hospital during the major snowstorm affecting the Northeast, according to the Boston Herald.

The medical center confirmed it has made available 60 private rooms that can be used for employee lodging, if needed. It also partnered with local hotels to secure discounted rooms for employees during the snowstorm, according to the report.

"It's the first snowstorm of the year, so I think everyone is a little anxious about that," Nicholas Duncan, director of emergency management at Tufts, told the Boston Herald. "But I think living in New England, we're all well-versed in snowstorms."

He added, "We're just dotting our i's and crossing our t's."

Tufts spokesperson Jeremy Lechan said the hospital typically takes these measures for employees whenever there are particularly adverse weather conditions. He could not say if other local hospitals take similar measures for employees.
