"BOSTON  MEMORIAL  HOSPITAL"
In the book, "Boston Memorial Hospital" is a skanky run-down medical center located near North Station facing Boston harbor with a housing project on one side and railroad tracks on the other. Nashua and Causeway streets run nearby. In the film, it looks much nicer with the then Boston City Hospital being used for the exteriors. I visited the BCH in 1988 and took some pictures. Since then, the main building has been torn down and a lawn is now where the building that Susan walks into was. The BCH is now the Boston University medical center.
