For decades, Boston Medical Center has stood as the city’s caretaker, providing exceptional care, without exception, to every patient who walks through its doors.

This unique role in caring for the city’s most vulnerable and underserved is more important than ever as Boston Medical Center stands at the frontline of the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency. BMC’s patient population—particularly the poor, homeless and marginalized—is at heightened risk during the COVID-19 crisis.

BMC’s role is truly critical to the entire Boston community during the life of this pandemic. Being the largest and busiest provider of trauma and medical services in New England and a national model of excellence in emergency medicine, BMC will be instrumental for thousands of patients who turn to the hospital for its exceptional medical care in the challenging weeks and months ahead.

Boston Medical Center needs your help. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency is rapidly evolving, Boston Medical Center’s commitment to the health and safety of our patients and staff remains the highest priority. Patients will desperately need the excellence, ingenuity and commitment BMC is known for. With your support, BMC will remain a source of world-class care, resources and aid for all patients that walk through our doors.

With the help of our partners Columbia Threadneedle Investments, our goal is to raise vital funds to address a broad range of needs in our community during these especially challenging times. These funds will have an immediate and substantial impact on the hospital’s relief efforts as well as provide a range of critical social supports and services to help our most vulnerable patients, whose lives have been upended by this crisis now and into the foreseeable future. These are just some of the ways your gift will make an impact:

  • Food cards for grocery stores as well as home-delivered meals and necessities to families
  • Housing stabilization
  • Transportation to the hospital or health center for patients and their families
  • Temporary screening facilities, additional staffing, equipment and supplies
  • Temporary lodging for homeless patients upon hospital discharge or clinic visit

Your support is truly critical during these challenging times. By donating to Team BMC you are showing your commitment to the entire city of Boston.
