Title
September 2014: What’s New at BID-Plymouth
Date
09/25/2014
Description
On January 1, 2014, Jordan Hospital joined the world-class, Harvard Medical School-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to enhance community healthcare. We’re still the friendly “hospital on the hill” serving more than 250,000 residents of the South Shore and Cape Cod.

Since becoming part of the BIDMC family of hospitals we’ve expanded and grown to better meet the needs of the community.

Since Becoming BID-Plymouth:

• BIDMC Associate Chief of Critical Care Medicine Alan Lisbon, MD, is the medical director of the Critical Care Center.

• BIDMC Neonatologists oversee and provide coverage to the Continuing Care Nursery at The BirthPlace. BIDMC’s Barbara Shephard, MD, is the medical director.

• BIDMC TeleNet Stroke Service provides 24/7 access to our ED physicians.

• The flagship BID HealthCare Medical Office Building opened on the hospital’s campus and serves as the primary location for our Primary Care, OB/GYN & Midwifery, and specialists.

• Three additional primary care physicians, Drs. Paula Kue, Lisa Taylor, and Joel Hass, joined our network. Eight new PCPs have joined with us.

• The hospital’s specialty services continue to expand with the addition of Neurosurgeon Dr. Kurtis Dafford, Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Walter Lech, and Orthopedic Spine Surgeon Dr. Steven Leckie. Two new urologists are joining us in the upcoming months, Dr. Lori Lerner and Dr. Evgeniy Kreydin.

• The BirthPlace, in conjunction with Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast, opened the only human milk bank depot in Eastern Massachusetts for premature and sick babies. Our maternity service is booming now with record numbers of deliveries and record patient satisfaction.

• Our Stroke Program received, for the sixth year, the Get With The Guidelines®--Stroke Gold Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

• The MySite Patient Portal was launched providing our patients with instant access to their health information.

• The Integrated Care Initiative (ICI) pilot program was launched in July to address the medical, behavioral, and substance abuse needs of those seeking help. We’ve applied for state funding to further expand the ICI to other primary care practices in the region, and will look to our community to help fund this critical effort.

What’s Coming?

• Construction of a new Interventional Cardiac Catheterization Lab has started and is expected to open in early 2015. Once open, we will be able to perform emergency stent procedures for those suffering from a stroke or heart attack that now must travel beyond the area for care.

• Enhanced medical records collaboration between BID-Plymouth and BIDMC.
