Boston Area

Ok, so we drop our ‘Rs’

There’s a lot more to Boston than our funny accent. Did you know Boston is an epicenter for health, science, and medical research? It’s where visions are born and discoveries are made. In fact, it’s one of the best places in the world to get treatment for a health issue.

If you come to Tufts Medical Center in Boston, you can trust our doctors are using the latest research and therapies available. Not only are we advancing that research, we’re also working with doctors, researchers, and other scientists all over the city.

If you’re new to Boston, us Bostonians are a lot of fun too. We take our sports seriously, but not much else. The spring and summer, bring festivals, outdoor concerts, and cultural gatherings. Plus, many neighborhoods boom with art, restaurants, and music.
