Thank you for joining me to support Boston Medical Center as part of Team BMC -- a phenomenal institution located in downtown Boston that serves as a community hub and massive safety net.
BMC is is a not-for-profit, 508-bed, academic medical center that emphasizes community-based care, with its mission to provide consistently accessible health services to all. BMC is the largest safety net hospital in New England, providing a full spectrum of pediatric and adult care services, from primary to family medicine to advanced specialty care. Our Emergency Department had 131,288 visits last year.
But BMC is so much more than a hospital. We provide a huge array of interdiscipinary services, community outreach, pre/post natal services, support groups, social work interventions, coat drives and more. My patients need our food pantry just as much as they need my cardiovascular care. We care for immigrants, refugees, and residents of the inner-city who experience tremendous social and economic deprivation.
Thank you for supporting Team BMC. It is a great place to work and I am excited to be a part of this team for the long haul.
