Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

A growing clinical affiliation between Anna Jaques Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) allows Women’s Health Care to offer more advanced services to patients with more complex health care needs. Many patients can now be treated locally, when clinically appropriate, and have access to physicians and technology at a world-class Boston academic medical center.

This partnership reflects our commitment to providing the best care for women, close to home.
