In 1994, our health system was founded by Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, two of the nation’s leading academic medical centers, with histories that date back to 1832 and 1811, respectively.
In 2019, we changed our name from Partners HealthCare to Mass General Brigham, a name that captures a sense of pride, a spirit of excellence, and aligned commitment to those we serve. With the Mass General Brigham name, we aspire to more closely connect with our 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.
Today, we are 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.
Building on two decades, we’ve most recently seen the power of collaboration with the coordinated response to COVID-19. Together, we will leverage our people, research, and technology to find new and better ways to serve.
