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.

About the CRN

The Clinical Research Network (CRN), one of two Center for Clinical Research Advancement (CCRA) teams, supports BMC's goal of providing innovative, equitable health care and CCRA's goal of advancing it through cutting-edge research that is both responsive to cultural and linguistic differences and inclusive in research participation and study design. To those ends, the CRN plays three roles: promoting community-engaged research values; offering staffing services for institutionally prioritized or under-resourced clinical trials; and nurturing research infrastructure development.

Promote community engagement | Provide CR services | Incubate infrastructure evolution
