MGH’s Bulfinch Building: highlights

Even as patient wards gradually moved elsewhere and numerous buildings have mushroomed around it, the Bulfinch Building remains the seat of the hospital’s soul, an object of awe for newcomers and enduring affection for those who spend time there.

Most of the building is inaccessible to the public. In this glimpse behind the scenes, you will meet just some of its extraordinary denizens, past and present.
