Mass General OB/GYN
2022 Annual Report
Caring for the community in Boston and beyond
We provide obstetrical, fertility, and gynecological care for patients on the main Mass General campus in Boston and in the communities of suburban Boston, including Danvers and Waltham.
This year we welcomed 3,600 babies, expanded our locations to offer you more convenient care, reaffirmed our commitment to offering a complete range of reproductive health options, and more.
While our real rewards are caring for patients, having a breakthrough in our research, and more, it is also meaningful when our work is recognized by our peers and colleagues.
