Our Commitment to a Healthier Community

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham plays a vital role in the lives of people who reside in the communities we serve. We are committed to improving the health and well-being residents throughout our Community Benefits Service Area.

Unmet health needs and priorities for the hospital are identified through the hospital’s Community Health Needs Assessment, done every three years. BID Needham then works in collaboration with area organizations, key stakeholders, and residents to address the needs identified through financial and clinical support.

Community Health Mini-Grants

BID Needham offers mini-grants to community organizations who are working to address unmet health needs for underserved populations. One grant cycle is available for FY22, with applications in March. For more information or to receive an application, please email us.
