Asian Community

Tufts Medical Center is located in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown – a culturally, historically and linguistically vibrant community. As an internationally respected teaching hospital, we pride ourselves on the high-quality, compassionate and patient-centered care we provide.
Tufts Medical Center's Jenny Ruan, MD, OBGYN doctor, sits in a cafe in Boston's Chinatown neighborhood.

We have a long, rich history of serving the region’s neediest residents, dating back to the founding of the Boston Dispensary in 1796. We are committed and uniquely positioned to provide the culturally and linguistically appropriate services to best serve our diverse patient population, which includes patients of all ages and nationalities, hailing from locations near and far. Referring physicians, patients and family members are vital members of our multi-faceted team that addresses complex health issues and are intimately involved in care decisions.

We have enjoyed longstanding partnerships with a wide variety of community-based organizations through the Asian Health Initiative and have established programs dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of our neighbors in the Asian community, including primary care, perinatal care, psychiatry and other services.
