Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is one of the nation's preeminent academic medical centers. We are committed to excellence in clinical care, biomedical research and education and to the health and wellness of our patients and our communities. Excellence In Clinical Care Beth Israel Deaconess, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is a fully integrated medical center providing adult services from cardiology to obstetrics, gastrointestinal disorders to cancer care. Each year U.S. News & World Report ranks BIDMC as a "Best Hospital" in multiple specialties. As national leaders in patient care quality, safety and transparency, we are setting standards in the way health data can be used to improve care and services. We were the first hospital in the country to achieve meaningful use of electronic medical records, meeting a key set of new federal government standards. BIDMC attracts leading clinicians in all medical fields. Our experts not only provide gold standard treatments to help a patient get better, they also help educate the public on disease prevention. BIDMC clinicians feel a responsibility to do more than make patients better when they are sick-they want to help the community stay healthy. Excellence In Research BIDMC is home to a renowned academic research program, where scientific discoveries help to transform medical care. We rank third in the country for National Institutes of Health funding among independent hospitals. With revolutionary advances and therapies happening within our walls, we are a national and international leader in "bench-to-bedside" research. Our patients benefit directly from our dedication to research. At any given moment, more than 300 clinical trials are offered throughout the medical center for those difficult to treat cases, in areas such as cancer, neurology, cardiology and other medical specialties. Excellence In Education BIDMCs 1,250 full-time physicians constitute almost a quarter of Harvard Medical School's faculty. Because of our roots, we are committed to training the next generation of doctors, and have raised medical education to a higher level with a uniquely strong and deep program that enhances our ability to attract top faculty and residents. Learning flourishes within our hallways, as students learn from the best of the best in an open environment that produces leaders of tomorrow. Advancing Care in Communities In pursuit of clinical and research excellence, we have formed partnerships with outstanding community hospitals, specialty care centers and physician practice groups in eastern Massachusetts to give you and your family the convenience of high quality care, close to home. With BIDMC at the core of this network, access to specialty care downtown is always available when appropriate. We are dedicated to providing the right care, at the right time, in the right place. Blending Warmth and Innovation Compassionate nursing is central to your experience here. Our nurses are highly regarded for superb care, kindness and proficiency. Our quality and safety initiatives, second to none, are often held up as a model for other institutions. As a hospital deemed "Most Wired," and "Most Wireless," we are reengineering how to gather, safeguard and utilize health information. Our systems are state-of-the-art and all BIDMC clinicians use centrally hosted electronic medical records. The Heart of Caring You expect excellence in clinical care, research, education and community outreach from a prominent academic medical center. But we believe what makes BIDMC even more remarkable is our spirit. We treat our patients with the utmost respect and compassion, as we would our own family members and friends.
