Emphasizing community-based care, Boston Medical Center (BMC) is the largest safety-net hospital in New England and is committed to providing consistently high-quality and accessible health services to all, regardless of insurance status or any other considerations. The hospital is the primary teaching affiliate of the nationally ranked Boston University School of Medicine, which has 800 students in its MD and PA programs. Boston University is a world class research institution with more that $250 million in research grants each year.
BMC is more than a hospital. It is a network of support and care that touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in need each year.
