Asian Community

Tufts Medical Center is uniquely located in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown, a culturally, historically and linguistically vibrant community. As an internationally-respected teaching hospital, we pride ourselves on the high-quality, compassionate care we provide here and at our full service children’s hospital, Floating Hospital for Children.

We have a long, rich history of serving the region’s neediest residents, dating back to the founding of the Boston Dispensary in 1796. We are committed and uniquely positioned to provide the culturally and linguistically appropriate services to best serve our diverse patient population, which includes patients of all ages and nationalities, hailing from locations near and far. Referring physicians, patients and family members are vital members of our multi-faceted team that addresses complex health issues and are intimately involved in care decisions.

We have enjoyed longstanding partnerships with a wide variety of community-based organizations and have created programs dedicated to meeting the health care needs of our neighbors in the Asian community, including the Asian Health Initiative, Asian Pediatric and Adolescent Clinical Services, and the Kidney and Blood Pressure Center. We also have established newer programs in the past decade, including the Asthma Prevention and Management Initiative, See, Test & Treat (an annual women’s health screening), OB/GYN Asian Access Clinic, and the Asian-Pacific Liver Wellness Program.

For appointment scheduling in Chinese, call 617-636-8833. Visit our Community Health Improvement Programs webpage for additional information about community programs and partnerships.
