AJ Quetta transported to spinal cord specialist in Georgia

NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- AJ Quetta was transported from Massachusetts General Hospital to Shepard Center in Atlanta on Tuesday.

Quetta injured his spinal cord while playing hockey for his high school, Bishop Feehan.

As he was leaving Mass. General on Tuesday, his teammates all gathered outside to give him a send off.

Quetta arrived at Shepherd Center on Tuesday afternoon and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to be evaluated.

He will be transferred to the hospital’s Spinal Cord Rehabilitation Program sometime soon. Upon arrival he will begin therapy with the guidance of a full team of medical and rehabilitation specialists.

Quetta’s family says that they are grateful for the excellent care he received at Mass. General as well as all of the support he’s gotten from the community.
