History and Mission
Since 1893, New England Baptist Hospital has been devoted to one mission: providing the highest-quality and most compassionate patient care available. We began our work over a century ago, in a single room located in a building adjacent to the Ruggles Street Baptist Church in Roxbury. There, Dr. and Mrs. Francis F. Whittier, along with Dr. H. Warren White and three other dedicated physicians, established a free dispensary to provide medical care for the community’s poor. Dr. Whittier prevailed upon Rev. Everett D. Burr, Pastor of the Ruggles Street Baptist Church, to present the problem to the Boston Baptist Social Union. His recommendation led to incorporation of the Boston Baptist Hospital that September.
NEBH transforms the lives of those we serve by promoting wellness, restoring function, lessening disability, alleviating pain, and advancing knowledge of musculoskeletal diseases and related disorders.
We are recognized as the premier and preferred destination for musculoskeletal care. NEBH leads the region as the most trusted source for care and education for patients with musculoskeletal disease and related disorders. Through clinical excellence, innovation, scholarship, efficiency, and legendary service to our patients, we’ve earned our leadership position among the nation’s top hospitals.
