Lying-In Building

221 Longwood Avenue

The Boston Lying-In hospital building serves as research space for the Brigham but originally served as a community hospital. Its doors opened in 1832 as one of America’s first maternity hospitals, serving women unable to afford in-home medical care. In 1966, it merged with the Free Hospital for Women, which served the community’s poor and sick women, later becoming the Boston Hospital for Women and merged with the Brigham and Women's in 1966.
