The Beth Israel Deaconess Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine provides world-class clinical care, training, research, and leadership in an environment of collaboration and collegiality. Since July 2011, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Anesthesia has been providing anesthesia services in Needham. This is the same staff that provides services at BIDMC allowing patients to receive the expertise of a major medical center in their community.

There are well-developed post-operative care pathways facilitating early mobilization and discharge from the hospital after major joint replacement surgery. Pediatric fellowship trained anesthesiologists care for our youngest patients. Board certified pain physicians are available three days a week for specialized evaluations and procedures.

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham is set to open a brand new surgical pavilion which will add two new technologically-advanced operating rooms with the existing three operating rooms and one minor procedure room. Currently, we provide approximately 3,000 anesthetics per year. The surgical volume has grown by 20% in the last two years.

At BID–Needham, we have provided new services and facilitated the introduction of two high throughput Harvard Medical Faculty Physician (HMFP) surgical practices, which has contributed greatly to the increase in surgical volume, significantly contributed to the lean design of two new minimally invasive operating suites. A new state of the art peri-operative facility to keep up with the growth in surgical volume is part of the new surgical pavilion.
