Our Commitment to the Health of Our Community
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton's community benefits mission is to provide free or low-cost programs that address unmet health and wellness needs of the diverse communities of Milton, Randolph and Quincy, in a manner shaped by community input, aligned with hospital resources, and guided by our objective to delivery high quality care with compassion, dignity and respect. This mission is achieved by identifying existing and future health needs in the community and addressing them through health initiatives, including education, prevention and screening programs and grant funding.
Research was conducted by way of individual interviews with key members of community organizations throughout the greater Milton area, distribution of a public health survey and community focus groups. The findings of this important study will provide valuable direction to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton and many community organizations in the months ahead.
BID-Milton will focus its Fiscal Year 2020-2022 programs to assist the following populations:
- Older adults
- Low-to-moderate income individuals and families
- Individuals with chronic/complex conditions
- Racial/ethnic minorities and non-English speakers
Programs developed will aim to address and improve upon the following priority areas:
- Mental health and substance abuse
- Chronic/complex conditions and their risk factors

Our dedicated physicians, staff and volunteers, offer services and resources to the BID Milton community through the use of free screenings, community events and more. We invite you to join us on our journey to continually improve the health of our community by participating in our upcoming programs.
