BID Plymouth, formerly Jordan Hospital, has grown from a 12-bed rural hospital to a 170-bed, acute care community hospital, serving residents in Plymouth and Barnstable counties.

The hospital was named for its first benefactor, Eben D. Jordan, a summer resident of Plymouth who had generously offered to give the sum of $10,000, which he later doubled to $20,000. One of the first acts of the directors was the purchase of the land on Sandwich Street, where the hospital still stands. In December of 1903, Jordan Hospital opened its doors to the first patients and has remained a community hospital ever since.

BID Plymouth is committed to achieving high quality and safe care for the patients it serves and is accredited by:

  • The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer
  • The American College of Radiology
  • The Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists
  • The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations
  • Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth's Joint Commission Quality Report

The hospital has earned the top safety grade from The Leapfrog Group 14 times in a row for continued commitment to patient safety. BID Plymouth has also received the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines - Stroke Gold Plus quality achievement award for its commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, ultimately leading to more lives saved and reduced disability.

In recognition of its commitment to racial equity in hospital-based breastfeeding support, BID Plymouth has also been honored with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Breastfeeding Achievement Award.
