The institutional merger of Beth Israel and Deaconess Hospitals in 1996 created one of the top academic medical centers in the country. However, two separate physical spaces still remained - the original Beth Israel campus, now called the East Campus, and the original Deaconess campus, now called the West Campus.
Just across the street from one another, the East and West campuses house specific services at each location. In the event that a patient needs to travel between the two campuses, a shuttle bus is available at the Feldberg Lobby entrance of the East campus and the Clinical Center Lobby of the West campus, and runs every 20 minutes.
