Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (BID-Milton) recently opened a new Center for Specialty Care in order to provide patients with convenient access to specialty care physicians and services such as spine surgery and colon and rectal surgery.
The Center provides outpatient appointments, including initial evaluations and follow-up visits, with several specialist physicians. Many of the Center’s physicians are surgeons on staff at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, are members of Harvard Medical Faculty Practice at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and perform surgery at BID-Milton.
Medical specialties currently offered at the Center include podiatry, spine surgery, colon and rectal surgery, and thoracic surgery.
“There is a growing need in the region for specialized healthcare services being provided in a convenient, low-cost community-hospital setting,” said Cynthia Page, vice president of clinical services for BID-Milton. “The new Center for Specialty Care and these new service offerings, along with the increased availability of physician specialists, allows the hospital to provide many patients with the care they need without having to leave the community.”
The hospital anticipates adding more specialty healthcare services to the Center in the future, explained Page.
The Center for Specialty Care is located on the ground floor of the hospital, next to the Reedsdale Road entrance. The Center’s telephone number is 617-313-1445.
