If not cancelled at least 72 hours prior, there will be a cancellation charge enforced. Thank you.

Please call General Services at 617.414.5710 to reserve a meeting space and arranging for room set-up with tables and chairs. Please keep in mind that Boston Medical Center has limited supplies of tables and chairs. You may need to rent additional tables and chairs.
All functions will be served on disposable products. China, linen, silverware, glassware and floral arrangements are available at an additional cost. Larger functions or events that take place beyond normal business hours may require additional labor that is not included in the price indicated in our catering menu package. In addition, food and supplies are assembled based on the number of guests attending the event. We do not base the amounts on an all you can eat price. If an event needs additional food or supplies over and above the initial amount requested, the Food and Nutrition Services Department will be more than happy to replenish those supplies at an added cost.
Additional charges may be applied for late functions. There is a $25.00 minimum charge per function.
