From Isaac Schiff, MD

The mission of the Mass General Vincent Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is to provide and make accessible the best health care possible to all women, irrespective of their socio-economic status. Each year, with a curiosity that produces groundbreaking research, a passion for teaching that inspires the next generation, and the skills that enable clinical excellence, our team works to bring to our patients the best and most advanced practices and treatments available.

The team includes the Trustees, Board of Managers and many other supporters of the Vincent Memorial Hospital.  This website helps to explain the Vincent and the important role it continues to play in the life of the department.  I hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to the Vincent Memorial Hospital!  Through this website, we invite you to learn more about of our distinctive heritage and our longstanding relationship with the Massachusetts General Hospital.

For more than a century, from its beginnings as a free-standing hospital for women in Boston’s West End, to the present day as a charitable corporation whose sole purpose is the support of Mass General’s Vincent Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Vincent Memorial Hospital has stood for compassion and the courage to embrace innovation.

On behalf of the entire Vincent family, we thank you for your interest in the Vincent Memorial Hospital.
