About Shattuck Hospital

Rich in history and named after the architect of American Public Health, Lemuel Shattuck Hospital is a fully Joint Commission accredited teaching facility that provides acute, subacute, and ambulatory care to patients referred by public agencies and private sector providers. Shattuck Hospital’s services help economically and socially disadvantaged patients to get high quality, cost-effective care from a staff that respects their dignity.

Located in the heart of Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood, the Shattuck Hospital includes 260 inpatient beds including 115 Psychiatric beds and 28 Correctional Health beds. In addition, the Shattuck has a full outpatient clinic with many specialties that offers treatment to patients of the Department of Mental Health as well as Department of Correction inmates and community patients. The Shattuck hospital is on the forefront of substance use disorder treatment including a Suboxone clinic serving 200 patients. In addition to direct medical services LSH hosts and supports an array of services located on the campus, serving patients struggling with addictions and homelessness.

We offer a carefully structured network of services designed to treat the complex and intricate physical, emotional and social needs of our patients. We take pride in being able to treat patients who are struggling with a combination of medical illness and complex psycho-social challenges.

The Shattuck has always responded to the public health challenges facing our community. In our early years, our focus was to treat chronic diseases such as polio and Tuberculosis. Later the hospital expanded its expertise and public health response to the treatment of HIV. While Tuberculosis and HIV continue to be public health challenges that are included in the Shattuck’s array of treatment, we also specialize in mental health and medical conditions complicated by substance use disorders.

Our employees are our greatest asset – we say it often and with good reason. It is only with the determination and dedication of our staff that we can serve our patients, generate long-term value for our stakeholders and contribute to the public health care needs of the Commonwealth.

Shattuck Hospital is part of a system of multi-specialty health care facilities operated by the Department of Public Health (DPH) and is governed by a multi-member board empowered by the agency to serve as the governing body for its public health hospitals.

Please note: In 2021, plans to relocate all medical and psychiatric services at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital will move to the Newton Pavilion in Boston’s south end located at 88 East Newton Street. See more relocation details.
