Melrose-Wakefield Hospital dedicates new surgical waiting area

Melrose-Wakefield Hospital recently opened a new surgical waiting area dedicated in the name of Joseph Abate, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and longtime member of the hospital’s medical staff. The new waiting area, which includes a flat screen TV, computer stations, comforting colors and furniture, was made possible through a very generous donation from Cummings Foundation, Inc., founded by Bill and Joyce Cummings of Winchester.

Dr. Abate graduated from Tufts Medical School in 1962 and has spent his 50-plus year career in the greater Boston area. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and holds memberships in several professional societies including the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery, American Medical Association, Massachusetts Medical Society and Massachusetts Orthopedic Association. Dr. Abate has served on the Massachusetts Orthopedic Association and Tufts University Medical School Alumni boards of directors for more than 20 years.
