“Boston is widely recognized as being the medical capital of the world ...”
I apologize in advance if offensive, but although Boston clearly has some great hospitals and docs, the idea that it is the medical capital of the world is just not accurate anymore. Actually, the idea that there is a medical capital of the world is not accurate anymore. I’ve seen some very marginal medical care and decision making at some of the ‘best’ hospitals with name recognition, and some great care and outstanding decision making by docs working at private hospitals with no name recognition.
The other fact that many people aren’t aware of is that medical school rankings are in large measure based on NIH research dollars - not some estimation of patient care.
That said, there are most definitely some of the best hospitals in the world in Boston.
Wasn't the compound pharmacy in Springfield?
Never mind, I see it is Framingham.
