Brigham and Women's Hospital (pronunciation: BRIH-gəm ənd WIM-inz HOS-pi-təl) is a teaching hospital located in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It is affiliated with Harvard Medical School and is a part of the larger Partners HealthCare system.

The hospital has since grown to become one of the largest in the United States and is consistently ranked among the best hospitals in the country.


Brigham and Women's Hospital offers a wide range of medical services, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology. The hospital is also known for its research in various fields, particularly in genetics, immunology, and biomedical engineering.
