Protecting our patients, their families and the many visitors who come to BIDMC every day is our top priority. A hospital is a place of healing, a place where every staff, patient or visitor should feel safe and secure.


Not only do our physicians have clinical protocols in place that help dictate the proper course of treatment for an illness, but we also have policies and procedures relating to everyday activities that make people healthier, or services available to help you deal with difficult medical decisions or other challenges or conflicts.

We are determined to do whatever it takes to make your visit or hospital stay with us a safe and healthy one.
