In addition to providing care and medical services to the Boston Celtics, New England Baptist Hospital works with the Celtics on joint community relations and outreach efforts. The two world class organizations partner on initiatives focused on physical fitness, health, and wellness, and host a variety of community-based events throughout the year.
New England Baptist Hospital is proud to sponsor the Future Celtics program, which challenges over 750 3rd-5th graders to develop their basketball game through skills, drills, and leadership training. Youth from local YMCAs and Boston Centers for Youth and Families participate in clinics coached by members of the Celtics, and are then challenged to improve their skills for a chance to come to a Celtics game as a Future Celtics All-Star.
In addition to presenting the Future Celtics program, NEBH is the presenting sponsor of the annual Future Celtics Leadership Achievement award, given to youth who create a community service project addressing a specific social issue in their community. The award is given out at New England Baptist night during a Celtics home game.

The Sr. Celtics program encourages elderly members of the Boston community to maintain an active lifestyle through participation in fitness and health education classes.
Celtics players, legends, and New England Baptist Hospital staff lead seniors from throughout the Mission Hill neighborhood in group workouts and discuss the benefits of physical exercise. The program encourages exercise, but also socialization, and is a critical part of keeping seniors active and helping with the elder isolation problem. It is the goal of New England Baptist Hospital to improve people’s lives and health through movement. With the Sr. Celtics program, NEBH and the Boston Celtics can help the Boston community, and especially the senior community, realize the importance of an active lifestyle, and the benefits and power of movement and motion.
