Welcome to MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care
MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care, part of Massachusetts General Hospital, consists of physicians and nurse practitioners who tailor care to each patient’s individual needs. We use leading-edge technology, such as Partners HealthCare Patient Gateway and MGH Virtual Visits, to improve the quality of patient care.
In addition to comprehensive primary care, MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care offers:
- Preventive medicine
- Group visits focused on wellness
- Electrocardiography (EKG)
- Laboratory services
A Team Approach to Care
We provide health care as a team, with a focus on the individual patient. This model is often called a “patient-centered medical home.”
Each dedicated health care team includes:
- A physician
- A nurse practitioner
- Administrative staff
Together, the patient and health care team will create a health care plan that is personalized and coordinated to help them stay healthy and to provide care when they need it, often with shorter wait times. The team can help patients better understand their health care needs, maintain an accurate medication list or connect them with specialists if necessary. Patients will be encouraged to play an active part in their health care by asking questions, communicating with their care team and collaborating to reach healthy goals.
If you have any questions about the patient-centered medical home model or would like more information, please speak with any member of your care team or call 617-726-4900.
MGH Virtual Visits: Connecting Patients with Physicians
Our patients have the option to participate in virtual visits. A virtual visit is a follow-up appointment with your primary care physician or practice designee conducted through our secure online portal to evaluate and manage care. This innovative technology fosters communication, builds relationships, improves access and convenience, and enhances patient care.
A virtual visit is not a substitute for all office visits, but can augment the traditional ways medical care is delivered, saving patients time and money.

Educating the Next Generation of Health Care Leaders
As part of Mass General, the largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, we are proud to participate in educating the next generation of health care professionals and have several Mass General residents at our practice. These physicians received their medical degrees from top-ranked medical schools and are specializing in internal medicine. They are supervised by our attending physicians. Patients who see a resident as their primary care provider will find the attending physician’s name on their insurance card.
