Thanks to Boston’s many prestigious universities, the city is a centre of medical research and is home to some of the best hospitals in the country. These mostly huddle together in the Longwood Medical Area, adjacent to the Fenway district. Some hospitals in Boston are excellent teaching hospitals affiliated directly with specific academic institutions.

Healthcare in Boston is overseen by the Boston Public Health Commission, the oldest health department in the US. The organisation is an independent public agency that provides a wide range of healthcare programmes and services.

Pharmacies are widely available in Boston, from large chain stores to smaller local outlets; some of which are open 24/7. 

Expats moving to Boston should ensure that they have a comprehensive health insurance plan to have access to the top medical facilities in the city.

Below is a list of some of Boston's most respected hospitals.
