Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth to Open Multispecialty Ambulatory Site in Middleborough

January 10, 2024

Middleborough, Mass. – Today, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (BID Plymouth), part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, announced plans to open a new multispecialty ambulatory site in Middleborough. The site, located at 8 Commerce Boulevard, will include primary care and grow to include urgent care and several specialty services. These services will be provided by clinicians from Beth Israel Lahey Health Primary Care and BID Plymouth.

“BID Plymouth is committed to expanding access to our model of delivering compassionate care in the community, and this is an exciting opportunity to serve Middleborough and the surrounding towns,” said Kevin Coughlin, President of BID Plymouth. “We look forward to opening our doors to serve patients later this spring.”

The site’s primary care practice is anticipated to be open for patients on March 1, 2024. Additional services, including specialty services, will be available later this year.

Primary care and urgent care services will be provided by clinicians from BILH Primary Care, and the specialty services will be provided by clinicians from BID Plymouth.

BILH has set a goal to deliver 70% of the care it delivers in the community by 2030.

“I am extremely pleased new healthcare services will be coming to the Town of Middleborough. Following the abrupt closure of Compass Medical this past summer, Beth Israel Lahey Health has announced they will be opening a new practice at the location previously operated by Compass. Ensuring my constituents in the Third Bristol & Plymouth district have access to high-quality medical services has long been a top priority for me throughout my tenure as State Senator. Many thanks and congratulations Beth Israel Lahey Health and all those at the local level working hard to facilitate the establishment of this new healthcare resource for our region,” said Dean of the MA Senate Marc R. Pacheco (D-Taunton).

"We are pleased to welcome Beth Israel Lahey Health to Middleborough,” said Middleborough Town Manager James McGrail. “Many people in Middleborough and nearby communities were affected by the Compass Medical closure and we are grateful that a healthcare practice will provide a new and important resource for residents."

BID Plymouth has made several recent investments to expand access to care in the region. Last month, it opened its new 25-bed clinical decision unit, which will help to improve throughput in the Emergency Department and make more inpatient beds available to those who need them the most. BID Plymouth also plans to expand its emergency department, doubling in size, and relocate hematology/oncology and infusion services to a new, expanded location in the coming years.
