In a statement to WCVB, South Shore Health president and CEO Allen Smith confirmed Cook and Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of retail and people, visited South Shore Hospital on Friday to meet some of the people who were injured when an SUV drove through the Apple Store at Derby Street Shops.
"The genuine caring and kindness shown by Tim and his team on this visit did so much to lift the spirits of the patients and our colleagues," Smith said in his statement.
The crash claimed the live of 65-year-old Kevin Bradley, of New Jersey and injured twenty others. Bradley was moving a barrier outside the store with a co-worker and was struck before the vehicle crashed into the building.
Bradley Rein, 53, of Hingham, has been charged with reckless homicide. He claims that his right foot became stuck on the gas and that he used his left foot to try to brake but was unable to stop the vehicle.
South Shore Hospital received and treated a total of 18 patients on Monday and 10 patients were discharged by 11 a.m. Tuesday.
"We are also so appreciative of the wonderful care our entire team has provided to these patients, from our (emergency medical services) at the scene of the accident right through to the emergency room, the trauma and critical care teams and all the doctors, nurses and colleagues who have provided care and support in the hospital and at home with our (Visiting Nurse Association) team," said Smith.
Friday evening, Cook dined at ALBA Restaurant in Quincy. The next day he visited the Apple Store in Boston to meet with employees. It's unclear when the Hingham store will reopen.
