Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a non-profit 496-bed medical center in Boston, Massachusetts. Boston Medical Center emphasizes community-based care, with its mission to provide consistently accessible health services to all. The largest safety net hospital in New England, Boston Medical Center provides a full spectrum of pediatric and adult care services, from primary care and family medicine to advanced specialty care. BMC is the largest and busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in New England. The Emergency Department had 130,000 visits last year.
Unwavering in its commitment to serve the community, Boston Medical Center is dedicated to providing accessible health care. Approximately 73% of BMC’s patient visits come from underserved populations, the low-income and elderly, who rely on government payors such as Medicaid, the Health Safety Net and Medicare for their coverage. More than 50 percent of BMC patients make less than $22,000 per year (for a family of four), many are new to the U.S. and the majority reside in Boston’s low-income, minority neighborhoods. As a result, BMC has become the glue to the city of Boston, offering nationally-recognized social services that tackle these obstacles and provide so much more than standard medicine. The care at BMC makes the seemingly impossible, possible for its patients—offering food, clothing and transportation assistance, addressing language and cultural barriers and providing access to chronic disease and cancer treatment support services to name a few.
