Broadcasting after Boston Marathon Bombings

Need

In the intense and chaotic hours and days after the Boston Marathon bombings, a national cable news network sought a clinical setting from which to broadcast its medical reporting on the progress of caring for the patients injured in the blasts.

Intervention

STRATUS became “homebase” for the network’s medical reporter after the bombings occurred. While STRATUS was not functioning as an actual clinical environment, the background gave the broadcast a realistic clinical appearance.

Impact

The network was able to set up shop at STRATUS for several days providing coverage in a realistic clinical setting without disturbing the hospital during a time of crisis.
