Ten Taxpayer Group Announces Lawsuit Against Boston Children's Hospital; Calls on State to Halt Construction
A Ten Taxpayer Group, consisting of members of the Friends of the Prouty Garden, intervened today in the Department of Public Health’s (DPH) process to determine the need for a more than $1 billion expansion at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH). The Ten Taxpayer Group filed a lawsuit against the hospital, alleging that BCH has violated state law and regulation by proceeding with construction of and fundraising for the 12-story facility without obtaining necessary state approval.
The suit names the Department of Public Health as a necessary party to the suit, and calls on the state to halt all construction activity until the project -- the most expensive in state history -- receives all official approvals.
Gregor McGregor of McGregor & Legere, PC, attorney for the Ten Taxpayer Group, will be holding a press conference today at 2pm in Pemberton Square outside Suffolk Superior Court.
