Mission & Vision

At Mass General Brigham, our patients come first.


Doctor taking patient's pulse

Mass General Brigham is committed to serving the community. We are dedicated to enhancing patient care, to teaching and research, and to taking a leadership role as an integrated health care system. We recognize that increasing value and continuously improving quality are essential to maintaining excellence.

Patient care
From routine care to the most complex cases, we offer comprehensive, full-circle clinical care to our patients, starting and ending at home. 

Research and discovery 
Because we are built on a legacy of medical discovery, our researchers push the boundaries of knowledge and advance medicine in new and innovative ways. 

We have over 100 accredited physician residency and fellowship programs, and over 2,000 trainees preparing to be the healers of tomorrow. 

We have five licensed and 15 affiliated community health centers. In 2018, we invested $205 million in community benefits, which includes investments in our licensed health centers, programs to respond to needs identified in our community health needs assessments, and our system’s commitment to the Health Safety Net program. We have diverse community partnerships to support our local residents.
