A Transformative Gift

Supporting the BID Needham Revival Fund

The Revival Fund was established in 2020 to help the hospital return to financial strength and advance critical initiatives to meet the community’s evolving needs.

Continued Excellence

As part of BID Needham’s continuous efforts to offer state-of-the-art medical care in the community, it has established the Dr. Eyre Endowment Fund for the Division of Urology.

Building Pathways, Cultivating Expertise

Building and maintaining a high level of expertise and commitment among our employees is central to the hospital’s mission and ongoing success. Thanks to an array of donor-funded initiatives, BID Needham is finding new and innovative ways to recruit and retain staff.

A Day to Give

Michael Lombard recognizes that staff are essential to the hospital, now more than ever. That’s why he leveraged his gift of $125,000 to encourage and challenge other community members to support their local hospital.

Supporting a Key Need

Donors Michael Lombard and Valerie Trotman spearheaded a vital effort to bring about a new Emergency Department at BID Needham, which will further allow the hospital to support patients and families with outstanding, locally accessible healthcare.
