Wish List

Our Wish List includes items that are currently necessary to host events or meet the needs expressed by patients at the hospital. This list is not an exhaustive list of items that are needed by BMC’s patients, but simply a starting point for ways we can improve the health outcomes of women who receive their care here.

To underwrite any of these items please contact Alix Carey in the BMC Office of Development by email at alix.carey@bmc.org.
