Boston bombing suspect moves to federal prison hospital

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has been moved from a Boston medical center to a federal Bureau of Prisons hospital about 40 miles away.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been receiving treatment for a variety of wounds at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center since his capture nearly a week ago.

He is now at Federal Medical Center Devens, U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Drew Wade said Friday. The prison hospital, located on the grounds of the former Fort Devens military base, is designed to house prisoners requiring ongoing medical care, according to the facility's website.

Tsarnaev, 19, was captured April 19 after a nearly 24-hour manhunt. According to the criminal complaint accusing him in the bombing, he had what appeared to be gunshot wounds to his head, neck, legs and hand. His brother, Tamerlan, died after a gun battle with police last week. Authorities say the Tsarnaevs were responsible for twin blasts on April 15 that killed three people and injured more than 260, 14 of whom had limbs amputated.

As of Thursday evening, 34 of those wounded were still being treated at Boston hospitals, including one patient in critical condition.
