    Bring snacks you really like! I'm SO grateful for this hospital, but patient's food is not my favorite - & it's very scheduled. Bring delicious things & eat when you want. (Cafeteria's good, though.) Read more

    Very efficient. Wait times were not very bad. Boston is luck to have such a world class facility.

    This hospital is half of the namesake of the Charles/MGH Red Line station. Although, if it's fairly serious, you may want to call an ambulance rather than rely on the MBTA.

    If you're being admitted, try to get sent to Phillips House 22. Amazing views of the city, gorgeous rooms and Direct TV movie channels. I could live here.

    Did you know most hospitals have a hair salon? MGHs is in level one next to the gift shop, in case you're spending a lot of one here or with a loved one.
