St. Elizabeth's Medical Center (SEMC) (more often called St. Elizabeth's Hospital, its former name) is a large medical facility and teaching hospital in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.

It is part of Steward Health Care System, the second largest health care system in New England which was founded in 2012, and is a major teaching affiliate of the Tufts University School of Medicine.

Besides advanced capabilities in inpatient and outpatient care, SEMC's research laboratories are active centers of investigation in such areas as cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, hematology and oncology.

SEMC's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is of particular note as its history predates many other areas of medicine in which the hospital is involved. Generations of people in the Boston area were born at St. Elizabeth's Hospital or more recently, at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center. Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg was born at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in 1942.
