After more than a century of treating sick children, Tufts Medical Center will close its 41-bed pediatric hospital in July and use those beds to treat more adult patients.

Many people might not remember that the hospital began onboard a ship sailing in Boston Harbor. A far cry from the sprawling hospitals that are seen across Boston today, the Floating Hospital for Children was established in 1894.
