Today's Globe: Caritas talks, vaccination rates, Janet Marzilli
The Archdiocese of Boston is in talks with Catholic Health Initiatives, a Catholic hospital chain based in Denver, to have it take over the church's ailing Caritas Christi Health Care system, according to three healthcare industry officials with knowledge of the discussions.
Massachusetts led all states, and Boston topped all major cities nationwide in the percentage of young children who received disease-fighting vaccinations last year, according to figures released yesterday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Janet Marzilli (left) and her husband, recognizing a need for seminars to help people with multiple sclerosis accomplish daily tasks others take for granted, joined with others around 1970 to form the Association to Overcome Multiple Sclerosis. Mrs. Marzilli, who had lived in Arlington for decades, died Aug. 22 in Cape Cod Hospital of complications from multiple sclerosis. She was 74 and had lived the past several years in Marstons Mills.
