Tufts-New England Medical Center (Boston) said that it has changed its name to Tufts Medical Center, a shorter name that it said “better reflects” the hospital's close relationship with Tufts University. The Medical Center is the principal teaching hospital for Tufts University School of Medicine.

Floating Hospital for Children, the full-service children's hospital on the Tufts Medical Center campus, will retain its name and will have a new logo that highlights its status as a free-standing children’s hospital and its place in the Tufts Medical Center organization. The hospital will be referred to as Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.
