Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is an international leader in virtually every area of medicine and has been the site of pioneering breakthroughs that have improved lives around the world.... more A major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, BWH has a legacy of excellence that continues to grow year after year.
Phenomenal hospital....anyone complaining about " waiting" is just dumb. #1 you don't want a medical team rushing to conclusions and making a quick decision about your health...not a good idea. #2 You... more are one of many people with medical concerns....relax and let them do their jobs. Its a top notch hospital not a dunkin drive through.
Our daughter was born at Brigham and Women's, a wonderful hospital, filled with smart, careful staff. Plus, the steak dinner we were served in our room afterwards--in the quiet of post-delivery joy--hit... more the spot!
If you have the option to go to Brigham and Women's and have the best healthcare at your finger tips take advantage of it. Many states are lacking good health insurance options let alone good hospital... more standings and doctors. I've discovered this on a recent move out of the Boston area.
Brigham and Women's ER staff always provided me with respect from when I entered from when I left no matter what the reason I was in for. All the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I've seen more departments then I've ever wanted but I've never been disappointed in the care I've received at BWH if anything they've exceeded my expectations.
If you need a PCP I recommend Brigham Circle Medical Associates. It's right across the street from the main hospital. Easy access to public transit, taxis, valet or the parking garage.
MRI, Cat Scan I recommend 850 Boylston Street in Chestnut Hill instead of the main campus if you have to go in just for the MRI or cat scan. It's easy in and out, free valet parking or free parking lot.
If you are going to valet park and not use the garage 45 Francis Street isn't as busy as 75 and you can usually get your car faster. But 75 Francis Street valet is 24 hours and 45 Francis is not. So if you go during the day check out 45 and see if you get your car faster. You can get to the same areas of the hospital using that entrance too.
Rate of readmission after discharge from hospital (hospital-wide)
Rate - 17.2% (1.2% above the national rate)
