Institutional Master Plan

Please bookmark this page to stay updated on our campus redesign.

In 2014, Boston Medical Center began the clinical campus redesign project. The final outcome of this project is to combine the clinical programs currently housed on both the Menino and East Newton Campus, to one convenient side of campus. Once complete, our hospital more sustainable and efficient, ultimately providing a better patient experience, for you and your family. We anticipate construction to be completed in late 2018.

Several clinics and patient services have moved as a result of the project and we have opened some fabulous new spaces such as:

  • A new Women and Infants Center – Located in our Yawkey Building, 4th floor. Rooms feature family accommodations.
  • New Radiology Suite adjacent to the Emergency Department.
  • The Yawkey cafeteria offering five different cuisines and a teaching kitchen. Free classes are held daily in The Teaching Kitchen
  • A new gift shop opened in the Menino lobby.
  • A rooftop farm opened summer 2017, providing our patients and employees fresh vegetables. Foods are featured in the cafeterias, Preventive Food Pantry and The Teaching Kitchen.
  • Ultrasound and Genetic testing moved from Yawkey Center’s fifth floor to Menino fifth floor, early November 2017.
  • Winter 2017, Family Medicine clinic located in Yawkey Canter moved to the Melina Cass building on Massachusetts Ave.

What to expect in 2018

  • Winter 2018, the walk-in ED entrance moved from Menino Pavilion on Harrison Avenue to a new and permanent Shapiro Drive location, off of Albany Street.
  • Expanded Emergency and Pediatric Departments will open 2018.
  • The new transport bridge over Albany Street will begin to be used to transport trauma patients from the helipad to the Emergency Department.
