We pride ourselves on the exceptional care we provide to every patient, without exception.
As an academic teaching hospital and trauma center, BMC’s resources and state-of-the-art facilities, together with the expertise and research capabilities of our multidisciplinary staff, enable us to meet the constantly evolving, complex needs of our patients and their families.

Bilingual Open-Access Concussion Clinics
Boston Medical Center has recently established multiple clinics dedicated to expediting the treatment of head injuries, concussions, and other pediatric neurological conditions. Treating patients from infancy through age 21, BMC offers specifically bilingual clinics at its East Boston Neighborhood Health Center and clinics serving the Lawrence-Lowell and Fitchburg regions.
Headed by internationally distinguished BMC pediatric neurologist and native Spanish speaker, Dr. Alcy Torres of Ecuador, the clinics offer an alternative for those who aren’t necessarily comfortable in the English speaking medical care system.
Additionally, BMC’s first open-access concussion clinic in the new, state-of-the-art Shapiro Center will enable more children with concussion, head trauma or who have other problems that require immediate attention, to be seen quickly. Open-access concussion clinic is held Fridays from 9-12pm with Dr. Torres. Please call 617.414.0465 for more information.
