The late Dr Bruce Reid's incredible legacy at the Bombers has been further honoured with the naming of the Bruce Reid Medical Rooms at the NEC Hangar.

Reid's family visited the club on Tuesday for the unveiling in front of the entire playing group, just two weeks after the former club doctor was elevated to Legend status in Essendon's prestigious Hall of Fame.

A universally loved figure, Reid was the best in his field as the AFL's longest-serving doctor, working across seven V/AFL Grand Finals and four premierships in his 39-year tenure at the Bombers.

On a deeper level, he became a confidant and friend to Essendon's players and their families across generations due to his professionalism, expertise, and sharp-witted nature.
