Boston Medical Center Clinical Campus Redesign 2014 - 2018
Please bookmark this page to stay updated on our campus redesign.
Boston Medical Center (BMC) was created by the merger of two separate hospitals in 1996, each with its own full service campus two blocks apart. This has resulted in the "split" campus configuration that still exists, with costly operational inefficiencies like two sets of operating rooms, two radiology departments, and the need to shuttle patients back and forth via ambulance depending on treatment needs.
BMC has made the decision to invest in a campus redesign over the next four years, which includes necessary upgrades that are needed with or without the redesign, as well as expanding the Emergency Department and upgrades to existing structures. Once completed, the redesign will provide a clinical workspace with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to solve BMC's most pressing care delivery needs. The project will yield at least $25m/year in savings and consolidate the overall campus footprint while maintaining patient services at current levels.
Our goal at BMC is to enhance our patient experience by consolidating our services and ensuring patients alike can get to their appointments. Every hospital's infrastructure must reflect the new reality of mandated cost controls and changes in care delivery models. For example, in recent years the clinical emphasis has increasingly shifted from inpatient to outpatient care; and new technology means reconfiguring hospital rooms and surgical suites to accommodate them efficiently. This redesign plan meets those goals and prepares BMC for the future.
