The Boston Medical Center mission

Boston Medical Center is dedicated to improving the health of the people of Boston — and beyond. That means focusing on all aspects of health, from preventive care, to care for chronic conditions, to programs that address root causes of medical issues and longstanding inequities, such as our innovative in-hospital food pantry and rooftop garden.

At BMC, we have the privilege of caring for a vibrant, diverse patient base.

  • Approximately 57% of our patients come from underserved populations
  • More than 50% are from ethnic and racial minority populations
  • 32% speak a language other than English as their primary language

Clinical excellence

We combine world-class clinicians and cutting-edge treatments with compassionate, quality care, that extends beyond our walls.
