Boston hospitals largely shut down as manhunt goes on

(CNN) -- Friday is not a good day to get sick in Boston.

The manhunt for the suspect in Monday's marathon bombings has led hospital officials to order widespread cuts in access and service throughout the city and its suburbs.

Here is a partial list:

Massachusetts General Hospital was on lockdown, with just one entrance open, said Kory Zhao with the press office. Access was limited to doctors and staff members with identification; patients ready for discharge were being advised to stay put.

Brigham and Women's Hospital was on total lockdown, said Jess Maki of corporate communications.

So, too, was Boston Medical Center, said Gina DiGravio, the media relations manager.

At Beth Israel, "business is proceeding as usual" within the confines of the city, which itself was on lockdown, said Bonnie Prescott of the communication office.

At Tufts Medical Center, Julie Jette, director of media relations and publications, said "minimum entrances" were remaining open. "Services are available for patients who need them."

At St. Elizabeth's Medical Center and Steward Hospital Services, operations were on lockdown, meaning that elective surgeries and visitor access were canceled, but emergencies were being treated, said marketing director Jennifer Kovalich.

Boston Children's Hospital's main campus in the Longwood Medical Area was locked down, meaning that patient appointments were canceled and patients would not be discharged, said Rob Graham, director of media relations and national strategy.

Boston Children Hospital's Waltham facility and its Martha Eliot Health Center in Jamaica Plain were closed.

But six miles south of the focus of police activity, operations were continuing as normal at Lemuel Shattuck Hospital, an operations manager told CNN.
