Boston Medical Center announces $189 million building project
Boston Business Journal - by Mark Hollmer
Tuesday, May 20, 2008


Boston Medical Center has announced plans to build a new ambulatory care building that will be paid for, in part, through a federally funded tax credit program.

The hospital expects $33 million in New Markets Tax Credits from the Massachusetts Health and Educational Facilities Authority, a public state authority that will administer the federal tax credit program.

New Markets Tax Credits are designed to encourage economic development in low income communities.

Overall, BMC expects to receive about $70 million in tax credits for the project. The rest of the $189 million project will be funded through tax-exempt bonds to be issued through HEFA later this year.

Once complete, the nine-story project at East Concord and Albany streets in Boston's South End will give BMC 245,000 square feet of additional space including outpatient services to be consolidated from other locations.

The project is expected to take about 30 months to complete.

New Ambulatory Building project underway
Work will soon begin on two major BMC clinical services building projects on
Albany Street.

The first is a two-story-plus-basement addition
to the Menino Pavilion that will allow expansion of
BMC?s Emergency Department (ED). The second
project is a state-of-the-art ambulatory center
at 725 Albany St. that will be a replacement for
the Doctors Office Building and other clinical
space. The building at 91 East Concord St. will be
demolished to accommodate the New Ambulatory
Building (NAB).

In addition to improving and expanding ambulatory
space, the new building projects will allow further
consolidation of services and accommodate growth
in volume.

?Consolidating clinical practices on campus
ensures one standard of care practice and
facilitates more efficient use of physician and
staff time,? said Gregory Grillone, MD, BMC?s
acting chief officer, and associate professor of
otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at BUSM.
According to Grillone, physicians will be involved
in all space-programming discussions and in the
design of the clinical floors in the new building.
The Menino addition, scheduled for completion in
fall 2009, will increase the space by 21,966 square
feet. The basement level includes mechanical
and storage space. The Menino ED will expand by
11 beds (a 44 percent increase in adult medical/
surgical ED beds), and the Radiology Department
will gain a second magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI) suite. The second floor will be shell space for
future expansion of the Menino operating rooms
and post-anesthesia care unit.
The NAB will have over 245,000 square feet of
space and be nine stories high. The basement
level will house radiology and phlebotomy
services, IMPAC (Internal Medicine Preoperative
Assessment Clinic), and support space. The first
floor will house patient reception, financial services
and retail space, while the second floor is designed
for a caf? for patients and staff. Floors three
through eight will hold ambulatory clinical services
and the ninth floor will contain a new hospital
clinical laboratory. The building is expected to be
completed in December 2010.
Vehicular access and drop-off to the building will
be via a covered two-story entrance off Albany
Street. Parking will be available across the street at
the 710 Albany St. garage.

Google Streetview of what's there now:


I gave this project its own thread, rather than keeping it lumped in with the general S. End thread.

Re: BMC Ambulatory Building

I used to work at BU Med. Ctr. I know that this beautiful old brick building was scheduled for demolition. An old Board of Trustee member fought very hard to save it and restore it. Thanks to him this building was saved.

Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation donates $15 million to Boston Medical Center



(BOSTON) ? The Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation has given $15 million to Boston Medical Center (BMC), as part of its Building the New BMC facilities expansion plan, it was announced today. In recognition of their generous support of BMC, the hospital will name the new 245,000-square-foot ambulatory care center the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Ambulatory Care Center.

Building the New BMC will be a major multi-year capital expansion project that will create approximately 500,000 square feet of new clinical space to consolidate services, upgrade and expand services and improve access to care. To support and fund the effort, the hospital anticipates launching a major capital campaign.

The nine-story Ambulatory Care Center that will bear the Shapiro?s name will be located at the corner of East Concord and Albany streets and will provide outpatient care. Experiencing consistent annual growth in patient volume, existing facilities are no longer adequate to meet the increasing demand for services. Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, BMC Board Chair Marshall Carter and BMC Board Vice Chair Alan Solomont joined BMC President and CEO Elaine Ullian and hundreds of BMC physicians, nurses, staff and supporters for the announcement of the donation. ?We are deeply grateful to the Shapiro Family for their generosity,? Ullian said. ?This gift will have a lasting impact on our patients and the care they receive and will ensure that we continue to provide exceptional care without exception.? ?Our family is very pleased to be making this investment in Boston Medical Center and the people of our city,? said Ronny Zinner, President of the Shapiro Family Foundation. ?Over the years we have come to know much more about the critical role that BMC plays in caring for the underserved and underprivileged in our community.

?In our estimation BMC is doing an extraordinary job fulfilling its mission of providing ?exceptional care without exception? for so many Bostonians, Zinner said. Mr. Shapiro is the founder and former chairman of Kay Windsor Inc., a New Bedford, Mass.-based manufacturer and importer of women's apparel. He founded Kay Windsor in 1939 and built it into one of the largest companies of its kind in the country before it was acquired by VF Corporation in 1971. The Shapiros, who live in Palm Beach and Boston, are widely known for their extensive support of both regions? major medical, cultural and educational institutions. In Boston, along with their support of BMC, they have given to Brandeis University, Brigham and Women?s Hospital, Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Dana Farber Cancer Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Wellesley College, Hebrew SeniorLife, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Museum of Fine Arts. In Florida, they are active in the Norton Art Museum, the Kravis Center for Performing Arts and the Palm Beach Opera. In addition, through several community-based initiatives, the Shapiro Family Foundation supports close to 75 Boston nonprofits focused on improving the lives of the disabled, disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Boston Medical Center is a private, not-for-profit, 582-bed, academic medical center affiliated with Boston University School of Medicine. Committed to providing high-quality health care to all, the hospital offers a full spectrum of pediatric and adult care services including primary and family medicine and advanced specialty care with an emphasis on community-based care. Boston Medical Center offers specialized care for complex health problems and is a leading research institution. Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine are partners in the Boston HealthNet ? 15 community health centers focused on providing exceptional health care to residents of Boston.

Re: BMC Ambulatory Building

The Shapiros are mega-donors. Their names are all over the place, esp. at the Museum of Fine Arts. Inspiring.

Ah that yellow sky tunnel! What is it! I remember seeing that when I was probably 7 and thinking it was some secret passage for the doctors or something.

Re: BMC Ambulatory Building

That's actually pretty nice imo...especially if the colors are that deep in the real life.

It might be a tad too large but I still like the rendering. This city needs more color...
