Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (BID-Milton) was recently named Business of the Year by the Randolph Chamber of Commerce at the organization’s Annual Meeting held at Lombardo’s.

According to Linda Werman, chair of the chamber’s board of directors, the award recognizes a business that has consistently enhanced the local business community, supports the vision and mission of the Chamber and supports the greater Randolph community.

The hospital also provided a $1,500 mini grant to Interfaith Social Services of Quincy for a Memories  Workshop at Randolph Senior Center.
