The BMC Immigrant & Refugee Health Center connects all of Boston Medical Center’s existing programs and expertise in immigrant and refugee health care into one central point of entry where any immigrant patient can be connected with all of BMC’s medical, mental health and social services that they need in order to heal, rebuild and thrive.
We all know the challenge of navigating a complex health care system. By aligning BMC’s immigrant and refugee programs under one medical home model, we can ensure that all of our patients are connected with BMC’s full menu of comprehensive care, can access these services in an efficient way, and are supported by knowledgeable, caring staff in navigating our healthcare system.
"The BMC Immigrant & Refugee Health Center is a place where patients know they can come to have their needs met—all of which we consider to be fundamental— in the most efficient way possible, especially when they first arrive and are learning our health care system. And we want them to feel safe every step of the way."
- Sarah Kimball, MD. Co-Director of the BMC Immigrant Health Center
