  • Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) is located at 75 Francis Street.
  • The two hospitals are connected by a bridge that allows patients easy access to services at both institutions.


Family and friends are important to our patients.

Please note that fresh flowers and living plants are not allowed in our inpatient hospital. This is because of the special air filter systems installed there to help protect patients from infection. Also, to protect latex-sensitive patients and staff, latex balloons are not allowed.

For visiting outpatients, please see our Outpatient Visitor Policy.

Admitting and Registration

On the day of your scheduled admission, please contact Bed Planning at 617-732-7472 to find out when to come in and where to go for your admission.


Nutrition is especially important for patients with cancer. A diet technician will discuss meal options with you when you arrive, and a diet technician or dietitian will continue to visit you daily. Inpatient units provide a variety of snacks between meals and throughout the night to accommodate your needs. If you have questions about your diet or individual food needs, please call the dietitian on the floor to discuss them.
