MGH Announces $1 Billion Expansion
Massachusetts General Hospital has announced it will spend more than $1 billion to expand its Boston campus to accommodate growing capacity needs.
MGH president Peter Slavin announced MGH plans to build a 12-story building for 450 single-bed rooms housed in a pair of connected towers. The new building will be a “much-needed, vital structure that will enable the MGH to deliver 21st-century care in a 21st-century environment,” Slavin said.
The new additions will be located entirely within MGH’s current campus, with a facade along Cambridge Street, extending from North Grove Street (the main hospital entrance) to Blossom Street and going back to Parkman Street.
Single-bed rooms are the national standard of care for new hospital construction as they offer privacy, space for families, and a quiet environment for patients to recover. Currently, 38 percent of MGH’s beds are in single rooms, which Slavin said is “far less than most other hospitals in Boston and lagging well behind national peer institutions.”
MGH, which is owned by Partners Healthcare, will file a letter of intent with city planners at the Boston Planning & Development Agency today. The hospital’s major development project is slated to start in 2020 and completed by 2026, Slavin wrote in his email.
“It’s important that our hospitals are making the improvements needed to keep Boston at the global forefront of health care,” Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said in a statement to the Herald. “We look forward to closely reviewing Mass General Hospital’s proposal once it is filed and beginning the comprehensive public process with input from the community.”
Below the building will be six levels of underground parking that can accommodate more than 1,000 vehicles, Slavin said, replacing the spaces from the hospital’s Parkman Garage. Several MGH buildings will be demolished and redeveloped.
