Needham, MA BOND celebrated the grand opening of the new Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham (BID-Needham) Outpatient Clinical Center on May 3rd. BID-Needham president John Fogarty, CFO and support services officer Nancy Hoffman, and CEO and president of Beth Israel Lahey Health Kevin Tabb, MD were all on-hand for the ribbon cutting. In addition, 200 community members and Lahey staff attended along with the BOND project team and design partners including JACA Architects.
BOND provided preconstruction and construction management services for the 37,000 s/f, four-story building, located at 148 Chestnut St. The center will bring expanded outpatient services to the community in the areas of cardiology/vascular surgery, endocrinology/endocrine surgery and neurology as well as an array of medical/surgical specialties and support services. The center will support an increased number of medical professionals with technology-rich services designed to lower hospital stays and improve the patient experience.
“BOND is proud to be part of this momentous occasion,” said Michael Walsh, BOND’s vice president, healthcare and life sciences. “This is an important addition to the Needham campus. Our long-standing relationship with BID-Needham has given us the opportunity to work with Beth Israel’s administrative team on this modern new building that will improve patient access and meet the rising demand for care in the community. “
The new Outpatient Clinical Center is the third project delivered by BOND and JACA Architects within the last ten years. Other recent BOND/JACA projects on the BIDH–Needham campus include the Cancer Center and Surgical Building in 2014 and the BreastCare Center in 2016. These projects are part of the hospital’s overall strategy to redevelop and transform the Needham campus, bringing care to Boston’s western suburbs.
