Red Sox & BIDMC
At the heart of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's (BIDMC) relationship with Boston's beloved Red Sox is the skill, enthusiasm and commitment to service that a team of BIDMC staff brings to every home game. By running the First Aid Stations at Fenway Park, BIDMC staff care for thousands of patrons each year who become hurt or ill.
In addition to taking such excellent care of the fans, BIDMC and the Red Sox work together to sponsor community programs such as the 9/11 Blood Drive with the American Red Cross and the Red Sox Scholars program.
As the official hospital of the Boston Red Sox, our newborns are all Red Sox babies! BIDMC's name is displayed throughout Fenway Park while photos of babies born at BIDMC are featured on the jumbotron, wearing the official baby hat of the Red Sox.
Shuttle buses for patients, visitors and staff proudly display the Red Sox affiliation. Banners about the relationship periodically adorn the medical center and Fenway area.
As the Official Hospital of the Boston Red Sox and Red Sox Nation, BIDMC provides educational reports explaining the cause, treatment and prevention of sports-related injuries on the Red Sox website. Written by veteran Boston sports journalist Gary Gillis, the articles feature interviews with BIDMC experts.
BIDMC can often be found on the field at Fenway several times a year when our all-star physicians are honored as "Medical All-Stars" and throw out the first pitch. In addition, each year 40 members of the BIDMC staff get to play softball on the Red Sox outfield as they fulfill their Fenway Fantasy.
