Team BMC Tool Kit
Boston Medical Center is a private, not-for-profit, 496-bed, academic medical center located in Boston’s historic South End. The hospital is the primary teaching affiliate for Boston University School of Medicine. 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. Boston Medical Center is the largest and busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in New England. The Emergency Department had 128,840 visits last year.
What makes BMC Special?
For decades, Boston Medical Center has stood as the city’s caretaker, providing care, without question and without prejudice, to every patient who walks through its doors.
With 75 percent of the hospital’s patients representing underserved populations, BMC sees hundreds of individuals with tragic life stories every day. Imagine the stress of a life-threatening health problem. Now, imagine that health problem in combination with seemingly hopeless life circumstances. The future would feel bleak—like an impossible mountain to climb—yet BMC’s patients, with the hospital by their side, never give up.
In addition to exceptional medical care, the hospital provides hope: hope for a child removed from a dangerous home situation and brought to BMC’s Pediatric Emergency Department; hope for a survivor of torture fleeing her home country in need of political asylum and health care; hope for a homeless veteran ill from spending winter nights sleeping on a park bench; and hope for an innocent teenage boy caught in the middle of street violence on his way home from school.
Boston Medical Center stands as Boston’s indispensable hospital and a national model for excellence in caring for the urban and working poor. It exists principally to care for any and every person who walks through its doors, and they do so with innovative treatments—many built right at BMC—and unwavering compassion provided by physicians who are leaders in their fields and highly-skilled nursing and professional staff. Striving to achieve the best possible outcome for every patient isn’t ancillary to BMC's mission—it is the mission.
The funds raised by this year’s marathon team will support the programs and services BMC patients rely—and thrive—on, so the hospital and its staff can continue to provide exceptional care, without exception.
Thank you for your support—you are truly making a difference in the lives of our patients.
