I survived. I’m here. I’m standing. I’m walking.”

JEFF BAUMAN


HE DEFIED TRAGEDY TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

In the immediate aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, a photo of a badly bloodied and critically injured victim became one of the most recognizable images from that day. The victim was Jeff Bauman, and while the photo came to represent the survivors of this senseless tragedy, it was only the beginning of his story. In the days and months following the bombing, another image of Jeff emerged: one of sheer strength.

How BMC Helps

There when every second matters.

Every year, BMC physicians and nurses are among the health care professionals staffing the medical tents at the finish line of The Boston Marathon. Yet when Boston experienced one of its darkest hours in 2013, BMC stepped up with steady hands and laser focus to care for Jeff and 27 other people who’d been critically injured in the blasts. It was a day unlike any other, but we are no strangers to treating the seriously wounded. Our Emergency Room (ER) sees more than 10,000 patients every month, and we operate New England’s busiest Level 1 trauma center. Our doctors, nurses and staff aren’t just deeply committed to providing world-class care, they’re passionate about providing hope when it’s needed most.

CRITICAL CARE FOR THE CITY WE LOVE

The 2013 Boston Marathon was a singular tragedy, and the memory of it still lingers in BMC’s hallways for the caregivers who were here that day. But the life threatening nature of the cases we continue to handle on a daily basis, whether the result of accidents or community violence, make us a critical lifeline for our city.

But the life threatening nature of the cases we continue to handle on a daily basis, whether the result of accidents or community violence, make us a critical lifeline for our city. From the privately insured to the homeless, our Emergency Room and Level I Trauma Center offer outstanding care to patients from all walks of life. For many of our patients, our ER not only addresses acute medical issues, it serves as their primary care clinic where they seek treatment for everything from sore throats to sickle-cell disease.

TEAM BMC RUNS TO MAKE BOSTON STRONGER

The Boston Marathon is a tradition that defines our city and everything it stands for. Team BMC has proudly participated in the marathon for 13 years, recruiting hundreds of committed athletes of every level to run, raise money and increase awareness of our mission to provide exceptional care to every patient.

The Boston Marathon is a tradition that defines our city and everything it stands for. Team BMC has proudly participated in the marathon for 13 years, recruiting hundreds of committed athletes of every level to run, raise money and increase awareness of our mission to provide exceptional care to every patient. The funds raised by this year’s marathon team—led by honorary co-captains Jeff Bauman and actor Jake Gyllenhaal—will go directly toward expanding and updating BMC’s Emergency Department, so the hospital and its staff can continue to provide world-class care at critical moments.

Our Capital Campaigns

Exceptional care begins with an extraordinary effort.

  • EMERGENCY

  • MATERNITY/NICU

  • PEDIATRICS

Expanding and modernizing our Emergency Room (ER) isn’t just an important piece of unfinished business—it’s mission critical. BMC operates New England’s busiest Level 1 trauma center, and our ER was built to service only 70,000 visits a year, but sees more than 10,000 patients every month. Our new adult and pediatric emergency facility will be expanded to accommodate 130,000 visits per year, greatly improving both operational efficiency and the standard of care.

Our Maternity department is busier than ever, and our high-risk patient population makes obstetric care, labor and delivery and neonatal care especially challenging. BMC is creating brand new, fully updated inpatient and outpatient OB/GYN and maternity facilities. The end result will be a state-of-the-art facility focused on welcoming families and maximizing privacy and comfort.

With more than 50,000 patients per year, our Pediatrics waiting room is filled well beyond capacity and is not conducive to privacy or meeting the unique challenges our families face. With more examination rooms to increase traffic flow, meeting spaces for interdisciplinary teams to review cases, office space for coordinators and social workers, and improved waiting areas so children can link to important resources—the new design will ensure our patients’ needs are met.
