Massachusetts General Hospital is planning to construct a $1 billion, 12-story building on its Boston campus by 2026. MGH announced to its employees in a letter it was launching the process to get approval for the hospital building aimed at addressing growing demands for care and services. Cancer and cardiology are expected to be the major centers of excellence in the new facility. The new building, expected to be about 1 million square feet for both inpatient and outpatient clinical care, will feature 450 single-bed patient rooms housed in the top six floors of the building in two parallel towers. Patient beds for thoracic surgery, vascular surgery and general medicine may also be incorporated within the structure. The building will also include operating/international rooms, a procedural suite, imaging facilities, exam rooms and infusion centers. It will also house dietary, pharmacy and clinical support services.
