Our Mission


BU Medical School -1









Boston Medical Center is an extraordinary community of health care providers devoted to the proposition that every person, regardless of his or her social or economic circumstances, deserves the best health care. Our mission is to provide consistently excellent and accessible health services to all in need of care regardless of status or ability to pay – exceptional care without exception.

We serve the ever-changing needs of our urban and suburban populations, while honoring their ethnic, religious and cultural differences. We recognize that diversity is a multi-faceted issue, encompassing race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and disability.  We feel it is critical that our trainees reflect the diversity of the patients we serve.
