Boston Medical Center Launches First Comprehensive Transgender Medical Center In Northeast | CommonHealth:

“Boston Medical Center CEO Kate Walsh was in a meeting a few years ago when something about gender identity and health came up. She turned to Dr. Joshua Safer, who was treating many of the hospital’s transgender patients.

‘I said, ‘So you really believe patients are born in the wrong bodies?’ ’ Walsh recalls, looking at Safer across a conference room table as she tells the story. ‘You said, ‘Yes,’ and that’s how we started on this journey to help people live the lives they were meant to live.’”
