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.

White Privilege


The unquestioned and unearned set of advantages, entitlements, benefits and choices bestowed on people solely because they are White, separate from one’s level of income or effort. Generally White people who experience such privilege do so without being conscious of it. White privilege does not mean that White people do not face challenges or struggles; it does mean that those struggles are not due to being White.
