What is Human First?

At the heart of everything we do at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a fervent belief that before patients are patients, they are people. We don’t see MRI number 137. We don’t see a label on a test tube. We don’t see a case of the flu. We see a mother who’s planning her son’s graduation party, a teacher with a classroom full of kids waiting for her return, a grandpa who never misses his granddaughter’s piano recitals.

What we do every day at BIDMC makes a difference in people’s lives. That’s why we are passionate about caring for our patients like they are family, finding new cures, using the finest and the latest technologies, and teaching and inspiring caregivers of tomorrow.

We put people at the center of everything we do, because we believe in medicine that puts people first.
