For over 150 years, we have served the people of Boston with top doctors, nurses, and staff dedicated to fulfilling our mission of providing accessible care for everyone. At Boston Medical Center, we bring our mix of innovative care, cutting-edge research, and inclusive programs to achieving this mission, at both our 514-bed hospital and in the communities where our patients live.

At BMC, we believe that everyone has the right to health and wellness. We'll always be here for you when you're sick – but we want to help you stay healthy too, and we know that staying healthy involves a lot more than occasional trips to the hospital. As part of BMC's commitment to making a healthier Boston, we have developed a number of programs and services that help address some of the root causes of medical issues – like economic mobility, housing, food, and transportation – with the goal of improving your health and overall wellbeing.

While we help keep you healthy today, BMC is also helping build the future of health and medicine. In 2022, BMC was the 18th largest recipient of funding from the National Institutes of Health among independent U.S. hospitals and received over $304 million in sponsored research funding. Our world-renowned researchers currently oversee 661 research projects, including both laboratory-based research and clinical research programs in areas such as substance use disorder, violence intervention, infectious disease, geriatrics, and hematology/oncology.

As the principal teaching affiliate of Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, BMC is devoted to training future generations of health care professionals. BMC operates 61 residency training programs with 729 resident and fellowship positions.

Clinical Care That's Here for You

At BMC's primary care practices, our expert physicians provide outstanding comprehensive health care, including urgent care for when you're sick and preventive medicine to keep you healthy. Learn more about General Internal Medicine and Family Medicine.

We also provide care in over 70 specialties and subspecialties, including six areas that have been named US News high performers and world-renowned clinics such as the Grayken Center for Addiction at BMC, Center of Excellence for Sickle Cell Disease, Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery, and Amyloidosis Center.

In addition, we offer world-class trauma and emergency services and operate the busiest center for these services in New England.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Drive Our Patient Care

As the largest safety net hospital in New England, our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is the basis of all BMC's work. Throughout the hospital, we leverage our strengths in clinical care, research, and community partnerships to address longstanding injustices and eliminate barriers to health, as well as focus our research programs on the inclusion of communities typically not included in medical research.

We're proud that our patients and staff come from all over the world and from diverse communities in the Boston area. More than 27 percent of our patients speak a primary language other than English, and so we offer all our medical care and services in over 263 languages, including Spanish, Haitian Creole, Cape Verdean Creole, and more.

Our work extends to advocating for and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion on a systemic level. The BMC Health Equity Accelerator is an ambitious approach that aims to eliminate the race-based health equity gap that exists throughout the health care industry in the U.S.

Because of our dedication to inclusion and breaking down barriers, BMC has been ranked as the #2 most racially inclusive hospital in the U.S. by the Lown Institute, as well as the #4 most socially responsible hospital in the U.S. (and #1 in Massachusetts). We have also been designated a LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Leader by the Human Rights Campaign.
