Mass General Brigham: An Integrated Health Care System
Brigham and Women’s Hospital is part of Mass General Brigham, a single, integrated health care system that consists of 16 member institutions that encompass a range of health care organizations. In addition to our academic medical centers, these include top-tier specialty hospitals, community hospitals, a rehabilitation network, a health insurance plan, a physician network, a teaching organization and many locations for urgent and community care.
Mass General Brigham was formerly known as Partners HealthCare when it was founded in 1994 by Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. With the recently adopted Mass General Brigham name, we aspire to more closely connect with patients and communities. Working together as one system, our health care organizations can leverage their collective expertise, resources and compassion to better serve patients and the community.
