History and Mission
BID Milton is committed to improving the health of our community by providing exceptional, personalized health care with dignity, compassion and respect.
For more than 100 years, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Milton (formerly Milton Hospital) has been committed to improving the health of the communities it serves by providing high-quality, personalized health care with compassion, dignity and respect. The roots of this tradition lie in a tiny convalescent home that was established in the late 19th century. In 1903, the Cunningham Foundation Trustees offered a portion of the Edward Cunningham Estate as a new site for the home, requiring that part of the building function as a hospital and paying for the necessary renovations. Milton Hospital was officially incorporated in 1903; it opened with just nine beds.
Today, BID Milton is a 100-bed leading regional community hospital with a complete complement of inpatient and outpatient health services and 24-hour emergency services. Learn more about our history.
