The Official Hospital of the Boston Celtics for 30 Years
When you’re looking for nationally recognized expertise in orthopedic surgery for yourself and your family, consider the experts the World Champion Boston Celtics have chosen to keep their team healthy for over 30 years. As the official and exclusive Celtics hospital, New England Baptist Hospital provides comprehensive medical services to the team and participates in various community relations and outreach efforts.
Take it from Paul Pierce, the six-time NBA All Star, Champion and Finals MVP. As former Captain of the Celtics, Pierce understood the importance of teamwork and told players that, no matter how great the player, no one person can win the game, that it's a team effort every time.
New England Baptist Hospital adheres to the same philosophy. With a team of medical staff on-site during games at the TD Garden, and around-the-clock care available through the Hospital, NEBH staff are experts at delivering everything the Celtics need. Pierce spent 14 years with the Boston Celtics, and is well acquainted with the quality of care provided by NEBH. "The Baptist staff takes care of the players like we're family. We get top-notch care, scheduled as quickly as possible and delivered with warmth. I know that they are dedicated to getting us back onto the court as quickly and safely as possible and I appreciate that."
In addition to the Celtics, New England Baptist Hospital's ties to sports medicine go back several decades. In the late 1950's Red Sox slugger Ted Williams came to the Baptist for treatment of a cervical disk problem. In the years since, world class and amateur athletes from a variety of sports have sought care from our sports medicine experts, including PGA legend Jack Nicklaus, who had his hip replaced at the Baptist in 1999.
