MetroWest Medical Center is a teaching hospital in Framingham and Natick, Massachusetts.

It is the largest health care provider in the MetroWest region between Boston and Worcester.[1] MWMC was formed by the 1992 merger of two hospitals in neighboring towns: Framingham Union Hospital and Natick's Leonard Morse Hospital; the two hospitals have a combined capacity of 302 beds. It was acquired by Columbia/HCA in 1996; Tenet Health Systems in 1999; Vanguard Health Systems in 2009; and once again Tenet Healthcare Corp. in 2013[2] when Tenet acquired Vanguard.[3] MWMC also operates an outpatient diagnostic and rehabilitation facility, MetroWest Wellness Center, in Framingham. MetroWest is affiliated with the Tufts Children's Hospital.
