<strong>We are rooted in our nation’s history</strong>
Tufts Medical Center’s founding institution was the Boston Dispensary, established in 1796 by early American patriots including Paul Revere and Samuel Adams. This makes us the oldest permanent medical facility in New England and the third oldest in the country. Floating Hospital for Children, our onsite pediatric hospital, began its life as a hospital ship in the Boston Harbor in 1894 before coming onshore permanently in 1931.
<strong>We treat the whole family</strong>
Tufts Medical Center provides everything from routine and emergency care to the members of our Boston neighborhood to treating the most complex diseases and injuries affecting adults and children throughout New England.
Our full-service children’s hospital, Floating Hospital for Children, offers advanced pediatric care to children of all ages, from babies born significantly before their due dates to maturing adolescents. We perform heart, kidney and bone marrow transplants, are a certified level I trauma center for adults and children, provide comprehensive neurological and neurosurgical care, and offer cutting-edge cancer treatments.
Even with this breadth of expertise, our physicians are able to work easily as a team for patients with multiple complex health issues. Referring physicians, patients, and family members are vital members of this multi-faceted team at Tufts Medical Center and are intimately involved in care decisions.
