Celebrating 200 Years

Honoring the past. Inventing the future.

As we celebrate our 200th year of serving patients locally and throughout the world, we can't help but stand in awe of where we've been, and all what our predecessors have accomplished. But our legacy is one that we'll never rest on. Instead, we're constantly in motion, working towards a future where we:

  • Continue to harness bold science and visionary minds to find life-changing and life-saving cures never before imagined
  • Heighten our commitment to training the next generation of trailblazing researchers and physicians—and the next after that
  • Never stop serving our community, remembering that before we were the world's preeminent resource for treating blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck, we started as a one-room clinic to treat those in the Boston community who needed eye care

Today, we are a vital part of the Mass General Brigham integrated health care system, determined to build on our significant history. So, as we celebrate this milestone, we do so with a promise that this is only the beginning. Our mission remains clear: more cures found, more transformations enacted, more lives improved, and more hope fulfilled.
