About the Outpatient Clinical Center
The new Outpatient Clinical Center at BID–Needham represents a significant advancement for BID–Needham; the four-story, 37,000-square-foot facility significantly broadens the scope and depth of services patients can receive in a convenient setting. The new building brings together ambulatory services, including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, orthopaedics, rheumatology and surgical specialties, under one roof in an easy-to-access Needham location.
