The MGH employs a well-trained security force to safeguard employees, patients, students, visitors, and property. For medical and security emergencies, call MGH Police and Security at 617-726-5400. For non-security related issues, contact on-site security at 617-726-0528.

A.L.E.R.T. - AWARENESS LETS EVERYONE REDUCE THEFT

The MGH Institute of Health Professions community and tenants of the Shouse Building participate in the A.L.E.R.T. Program—"Partners in Prevention" a program through Massachusetts General Hospital Police & Security Department.

The A.L.E.R.T. Program identifies vulnerable items or areas that are susceptible to theft. Stickers are placed on all items or doors found unattended or unsecured as a reminder to lock up and secure items of value. Unattended items of value will be removed for safety and held by MGH Police & Security, in the lobby, until retrieved by the owner. Please read the sticker for specific information.
