WAYNE BERRY


Cancer doesn't define him. But his spirit defines us.

A cancer diagnosis is a life-altering experience, but Wayne is fighting for his recovery with a great attitude, his family and the BMC team on his side. From rides to appointments and support groups, to warm blankets during long chemo treatments—we’re with him every step of the way.

How BMC Helps

We don’t just treat our patients. We take the journey with them.

When Wayne was diagnosed with Stage 4 gastric cancer he needed more than a treatment plan, he needed a support team. We consider each of our patients as members of our family and treat them as our own by taking the extra steps to be there for them with patient navigation services, counseling, support groups and other programs designed to help them lead full lives. And with a vulnerable patient population dealing with challenging circumstances, our mission to provide full-service, comprehensive care is truly unique.

Ensuring no patient ever gets lost in the shuffle.

In a city full of leading cancer care institutions, Boston Medical Center’s services are unparalleled. We created our Oncology Patient Navigation Program in 2005 to help our patients, many facing socio-economic barriers, get the best care available.

In a city full of leading cancer care institutions, Boston Medical Center’s services are unparalleled. We created our Oncology Patient Navigation Program in 2005 to help our patients, many facing socio-economic barriers, get the best care available. Our patient navigators help arrange transportation services for patients unable to get to their appointments, and interpreter services for those whose first language is not English. They’re also there to assist and guide patients through the complex process of scheduling and coordinating rigorous treatment plans. Since its inception, the program has been recognized by the National Cancer Institute for its excellence in helping patients access the care they need, no matter their circumstance.

Dealing with a life-altering diagnosis takes more than medicine.

For Boston Medical Center, cancer care is about so much more than a prescription or chemotherapy appointment. We are committed to ensuring our patients thrive both at the hospital and at home, and do everything we can to make the treatment experience as comfortable and efficient as possible.

For Boston Medical Center, cancer care is about so much more than a prescription or chemotherapy appointment. We are committed to ensuring our patients thrive both at the hospital and at home, and do everything we can to make the treatment experience as comfortable and efficient as possible. We provide holistic, full service care that goes above and beyond basic cancer care, offering Cancer Support Services including alternative approaches to managing side effects, such as yoga and acupuncture. We also provide art therapy activities and cultural outings to help alleviate the stress of treatment. Because something as simple as an evening at the theater can help make one of life’s most difficult challenges a little more bearable.

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.
