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
As an award-winning health equity leader, our diverse clinicians and staff interrogate racial disparities in care and partner with our community to dismantle systemic inequities.
Boston Medical Center was named one of the "World's Best Hospitals 2023" by Newsweek
#1 in the nation

"One of the things that stood out was how BMC wasn't just trying to identify social inequities, they were trying to address them and eliminate them."
