Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a non-profit 639 licensed-bed medical center in Boston, Massachusetts. It was created by the formal merger of Boston City Hospital (BCH) which was the first municipal hospital in the United States and Boston University Medical Center Hospital (BUMCH) in July 1996 which was sponsored at founding by the Methodists and then by Boston University. BCH was founded in 1855, and BUMCH in 1864. It has the largest 24-hour Level I trauma center in New England, and the Emergency Department had more than 131,000 visits in 2009. BMC employs more than 1,200 in-house physicians — including 777 residents and fellows — and 1,600 nurses. BMC is the primary teaching affiliate of the Boston University School of Medicine. - Source: Wikipedia
