Dear Friends,

Welcome to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham’s website. We have created this site to make it easier for you to navigate through the often complicated maze of medical information and to familiarize you with all of our services.

Many of our patients have also volunteered their own poignant stories to help you understand how our direct link to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) gives you the advantage of receiving world-class academic medical center care in the comfort of your own community.

As you explore this new site you will find in-depth information about our departments, services, and specialty centers, including our brand new state-of-the-art BreastCare Center, as well as the Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center and Surgical Pavilion.

We looking forward to meeting you.

Wishing you good health,


John M. Fogarty, FACHE
President and Chief Executive Officer
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham
