Brigham and Women’s Hospital: A Legacy of Providing Expert, Compassionate Patient Care

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a world-class academic medical center based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Brigham serves patients from New England, across the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. A major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, the Brigham has a legacy of clinical excellence that continues to grow year after year.

The Brigham network includes 1,200 doctors throughout New England working across 150 outpatient practices. An international leader in virtually every area of medicine, the Brigham has led numerous medical and scientific breakthroughs that have improved lives around the world.

U.S. News & World Report ranks the Brigham among the best hospitals in many specialty areas, including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, ear, nose and throat, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatric care, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pulmonology, rheumatology, and urology. In 2023, U.S. News ranked the Brigham #1 in obstetrics and gynecology for the second consecutive year.

The Brigham is part of Mass General Brigham, a single, integrated healthcare system of 16 member institutions that encompass a range of healthcare organizations. Mass General Brigham was formerly known as Partners HealthCare when it was founded in 1994 by the Brigham and Massachusetts General Hospital. With the recently adopted Mass General Brigham name, we aspire to more closely connect with patients and communities. Working together as one system, our healthcare organizations can leverage their collective expertise, resources, and compassion to better serve patients and the community.
