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.

Reverse Discrimination


Perceived discrimination against the majority group, especially resulting from policies enacted to correct past discrimination. While such discrimination may be racially motivated, reverse discrimination is not the same as racism because the former is not institutionally enforced. 

Claims of reverse discrimination are often a reaction to attempts to correct policies and practices that have systemically oppressed populations (i.e., justice)
