Baystate Medical Center (BMC) in Springfield, MA is Baystate Health’s 716-bed flagship hospital and a training site for the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School – Baystate. As a major referral care center and the only Level 1 trauma center and pediatric trauma center for western Massachusetts with one of New England’s busiest emergency departments, BMC plays a critical role in meeting the healthcare needs of residents throughout western New England. 

In 2015, Baystate Health established a new partnership with the UMass Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Amherst to develop a new regional clinical campus of the UMass Chan Medical School (UMMS) in Springfield, known as UMMS Chan-Baystate. UMMS Chan- Baystate is now home to UMMS’ four-year Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) track, which welcomed its inaugural class of 22 medical students in Autumn 2017. Through this innovative program, the three institutions are partnering to strengthen the pipeline of new primary care physicians for the future in Western Massachusetts. These three institutions have also collaborated to create the Institute for Healthcare Delivery & Population Science, to generate and apply new knowledge to transform health care delivery and population health in support of Baystate Health’s strategic goals. The Institute conducts health services research projects in partnership with local, regional, and national stakeholders.
