Square Feet: 97,559 Lease Expiration: 08/2017

Tufts-New England Medical Center (Tufts-NEMC). The property’s sole tenant, Tufts-NEMC, is a 451-bed academic medical center. The origins of this nonprofit hospital date back to 1796 when the Boston Dispensary was founded as New England’s first permanent medical institution. The generosity of Revolutionary War luminaries such as Paul Revere and Sam Adams enabled the hospital to provide free medical care to the poor. In the 1960s, the Boston Dispensary merged with the Floating Hospital for Children and the Pratt Diagnostic Clinic. Medical breakthroughs at Tufts-NEMC have included the formulation of Similac, the discovery of the definitive test for syphilis and pioneering work in immunology that paved the way for organ transplants.

As the principal hospital for Tufts University Medical School, Tufts-NEMC offers residency programs in virtually all medical specialties. Tufts-NEMC oversees approximately $50,000,000 of active research and ranks in the top ten of the nation’s institutions that receive federal research funds.

The funding that Tufts-NEMC receives is utilized by research groups throughout the campus. The hospital’s Molecular Cardiology Research Institute, located in The Tupper Building, is a world leader in molecular cardiology and cardiovascular research. The MCRI areas of focus include vascular biology, cardiomyocyte biology, electrophysiology, human genetics and genomics, molecular pharmacology, and signal transduction. They are a major recipient of the grants that Tufts-NEMC receives from the U.S. Government and have recently been awarded a $11.3 million program project grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. The grant is titled “Molecular Mechanisms of Vascular Relaxation” and its long-term objective is to understand the complex underlying molecular mechanisms that regulate vascular tone and blood pressure in health and disease.
