BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Boston Medical Center no longer requires masks in either administrative areas or most clinical settings.

Of course, patients, visitors, and hospital staff may still wear masks if they prefer. Masks will be available in the lobbies, all clinics, inpatient floors, and the Emergency Department.
If you are COVID-positive, you (and any visitors) will be required to wear a mask, and the staff will wear N95 masks during your care.

If you have a cough or other symptoms of an upper respiratory infection (such as the flu or a cold) and your COVID status is either negative or pending, you will be required to wear a mask.
