The new 37,000 square-foot facility located on the BID–Needham campus will open its doors in 2019 and will house outpatient clinics such as cardiology, gastroenterology and orthopaedics.
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham (BID–Needham) yesterday hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new, 37,000 square foot state-of-the-art Outpatient Clinical Center. Nearly 100 community members and leaders, physicians, nurses and staff celebrated the occasion together, led by BID-Needham President and CEO John Fogarty, Chair of the Board of Trustees Stephen E. Vanourny, and State Representative Denise Garlick. The new four-story center will bring expanded outpatient services to the community in the areas of cardiology, gastroenterology and orthopaedics.

‘‘This groundbreaking marks a step into the future, one that will have a substantial benefit to our patients, staff and our whole community,” said Fogarty. “The hospital is building on our existing strengths in extraordinary outpatient care, while creating appropriate space to meet the rising demand for care in the community. This new center has been designed to offer the most convenient and efficient layout for our patients and a collaborative space for clinicians to deliver receive the highest level of care they are known for. We are excited to start this next phase of growth for our hospital.”

‘‘The new Outpatient Clinical Center has the potential to be truly transformative for the hospital and the town of Needham,’’ said Vanourny. ‘‘It means we can significantly broaden the scope and depth of services people can receive in a convenient setting. This is a momentous occasion for the hospital and one that shows BID–Needham’s commitment to bringing excellent care to the community, close to home.”

With the new center, the hospital aims to bring even more patient-centered care to the community for critical outpatient services for cardiology, gastroenterology and orthopaedics. The new building will help BID–Needham continue responding to rapid changes in health care and increasing outpatient volume, while better accommodating growth for inpatient activity in the hospital.

The design of the building incorporates natural light for healing, a collaborative work space for physicians and staff and a conference center. The architecture features a nod to the local neighborhood adjacent to the hospital, with a residential style façade on one side, and a modern, sleek facility on the other. Construction of the new Outpatient Clinical Center began after the ceremony and will conclude in 2018, with doors opening in early 2019.
