MEREDA’s Morning Menu Breakfast Event “148 Years in the Making… Maine Medical Center’s $512 Million Expansion Project”
This Spring, Maine’s largest hospital project ever, will commence at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Its purpose is to expand and modernize the hospital to provide the best possible patient care.
The Maine Medical Center Phase IIB Master Facilities Project is a $512 million investment in the care provided at Maine’s largest and most advanced medical center. The project will relieve a severe shortage of beds at the hospital, not by adding more beds, but by providing 128 new single patient rooms, allowing MMC to better meet the growing demands of acutely ill patients. It will also add 19 new procedure rooms, increasing capacity and replacing older operating rooms no longer able to accommodate the latest technology.
The project calls for the replacement of the existing employee parking garage with a larger parking facility that will alleviate an acute shortage of parking on the campus. It also creates a new main entrance for the hospital on Congress Street. A $50 million investment in ambulatory facilities in the Portland region is also planned. Construction is expected to get under way in early 2018 and be completed in 2022.
Join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) and Jeff Sanders for breakfast on April 26, 2018 from 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM at the Clarion Hotel in Portland to learn more about the rationale, scope, timing and challenges of this massive expansion project.
