Tufts Medical Center, formerly Tufts-New England Medical Center (NEMC), is an academic medical center like no other. We offer the highest level of academic medicine and research, but we also do not forget that at the heart of every treatment, every research discovery and every visit is a patient and family needing support and care.

Convenient Boston Location
Located in downtown Boston in Chinatown and the Theatre District, Tufts Medical Center is the oldest permanent medical facility in the country and was founded by early American patriots including Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.
Multidisciplinary Approach to Patient Care
Today, Tufts Medical Center is a 415-bed robust organization, providing comprehensive care from routine medical care to treating the most complex diseases affecting adults and children. Tufts Medical Center is also home to Floating Hospital for Children, a full-service children's hospital dedicated exclusively to all levels of pediatric care from the tiniest of newborns to maturing adolescents. From birth through adulthood, we are here for every member of the family.
Our focus is tertiary and quaternary care, providing the most advanced treatments for the most complex and serious illnesses and injuries. We provide heart, kidney and bone marrow transplants, are a level I trauma center for adults and children, provide comprehensive neurological and neurosurgical care, and offer cutting-edge cancer treatments.
Tufts Medical Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to the care of our patients. Due to our intimate size, physicians from one department easily communicate with members of other departments and divisions to bring in perspectives from all groups to determine the right treatment plan for each patient. Referring physicians, the patient and family members are vital members of the multidisciplinary team at Tufts Medical Center and are instrumental in the decision-making process.
Robust Research Program
Another vital component of Tufts Medical Center is our robust research program that includes groundbreaking bench research, clinical trials and developments in health policy. Our research activities are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), private foundations, industry and private individuals. Tufts Medical Center ranks among the top 10 percent of the nation's independent hospitals to receive federal research funds. Our dual mission of advancing knowledge and training our experts to become future investigators drives forward with one goal in mind - quickly turning innovative research into pioneering care.
Partnering with Community Hospitals
Tufts Medical Center works closely with community hospital affiliates to ensure that advanced care is offered in a location that is convenient for patients. Our affiliate relationships include Brockton Hospital, Jordan Hospital in Plymouth and MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham and Natick. Floating Hospital for Children has affiliations with Brockton Hospital, Lowell General Hospital, Lawrence General Hospital, MetroWest Medical Center and Morton Hospital in Taunton. We also provide services at numerous other hospitals throughout the region.
At Tufts Medical Center, our goal is to treat each patient and family as we would want our own families to be treated. We believe that the best medicine should be dispensed with the greatest compassion. Patients deserve nothing less. That is our philosophy. That's our commitment. That's what guides our doctors, nurses, researchers and staff every day.
