About Patient Care Services

Critical thinkers and strong decision-makers collaborating to achieve positive clinical outcomes. Patients and families are our primary focus.


At MGH we recognize that meeting spiritual and religious needs is an important part of caring for you as a whole person. To respond to these needs, the hospital offers the services of our Chaplaincy. Ministry is available to people of all faiths and to those of no religious affiliation. Visit the Chaplaincy website.


The essence of nursing practice at Massachusetts General Hospital is caring. Our every action is guided by knowledge, enabled by skill, and motivated by compassion. Patients are our primary focus and the way we deliver care reflects that focus every day. We have a practice environment that has no barriers, is built on a spirit of inquiry, and reflects a culturally competent workforce supportive of the patient-focused values of this institution. Evidence-based standards of practice guide the decision-making and activities of the Department of Nursing.
