Since 1811, Massachusetts General Hospital has been committed to delivering standard-setting medical care. Throughout the decades, the hospital has had a consistent commitment to advancing that care through... more pioneering research and educating future health care professionals.
MGH had been a great hospital to me. It is one of the leading hospitals in the country.
The staff are all amazing and make sure that every patient is treated well.
The campus... more covers a few blocks, and there are enough signs to point you in the right direction. Then they have specific desks set up in the buildings just to answer questions and direct you to wherever you need to go.
There are cafes inside, along with lots of options right in the area like a CVS, Whole Foods and other restaurants.
There are a lot of quality hospitals in Boston and MGH always ranks in the top places.
A 15 USD fee to get an electronic copy of my x-ray or MRI is not something I enjoy. Data should belong to patients. Do you still live in the 19th century?
Also, just a warning for anyone going... more there for a surgery: some MGH surgeons practice concurrent surgeries (this means that your surgeon may operate several patients at once). Google "Concurrent surgeries at Mass General caught in crosshairs of new lawsuit" for more information. MGH claims that "Data from the MGH as well as national studies have demonstrated no difference in complication rates for overlapping and non-overlapping cases." but that's false, e.g. see the study "Ravi, Bheeshma, Daniel Pincus, David Wasserstein, Anand Govindarajan, Anjie Huang, Peter C. Austin, Richard Jenkinson, Patrick DG Henry, J. Michael Paterson, and Hans J. Kreder. "Association of overlapping surgery with increased risk for complications following hip surgery: a population-based, matched cohort study." JAMA Internal Medicine (2017)."
Worst hospital ever! I’m actually here now been here for 2 hours in a corner inside of pediatrics.. 20 doctors and 10 nurses passed by me and no one helped.. mind you I’m in the ER so yes there’s... more a wait. But when you start to
Skip me and put me in a corner that’s when it start to get annoyed. I asked the nurse who placed us “in the corner” when was the doctor coming by. She seemed surprised and said they didn’t come by yet. And I said. Nope. Now here it is 3 hours later my daughter still coughing and the waiting room is getting full and guess what still no doctor. This is a horrible horrible hospital please don’t send your kids. Take the trip to children’s.
