Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is one of the nation's preeminent academic medical centers. We are committed to excellence in clinical care, biomedical research and education, and to the health and wellness of our patients and our communities.
A major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School (HMS), BIDMC is a fully integrated medical center, providing adult care, with over 1,250 full-time staff, virtually all of whom are faculty at HMS. Our focus on safe and quality patient care has helped establish us as a national leader in health care quality, safety and transparency.
BIDMC is home to a renowned academic research program where scientific discoveries are helping to transform medical care. We rank third in the country for National Institutes of Health funding among independent hospitals. With revolutionary advances and therapies happening right here within our walls, BIDMC is a national leader in "bench to bedside" research.
BIDMC is also training the next generation of physicians. We have raised medical education to a higher level, with a uniquely strong and deep program that enhances our ability to attract top faculty and residents. All of our physicians are on the staff of Harvard Medical School and our education programs are highly sought after.
Our nurses have a longstanding reputation of leadership in patient care and compassion. Our quality and safety initiatives are second to none and are often held up as a model for other institutions. As a "Most Wired" - and a "Most Wireless" - Hospital, we also lead the way in understanding the importance of health information technology: our systems are state-of-the-art, and all BIDMC clinicians use centrally hosted, certified electronic medical records.
