Boston Medical Center’s 208,000-pound bridge was installed in one day. A milestone in the healthcare facility history, the bridge will be used to transport patients directly from hospital’s existing helipad to the redesigned Emergency Department.
Currently patients arriving at BMC via medical airlift need an ambulance to bring them across Albany Street to the emergency room.
The $184 million, single IPD contract agreement is with Tocci Building Companies, TRO JB and Suffolk Construction and BMC. BMC is the first academic medical center in Massachusetts to use IPD and the largest to employ collaborative project delivery in New England.
The project is part of BMC’s four year Clinical Campus Redesign and will be done while the hospital remains fully operational. As part of the IPD process, the team is incorporating Lean processes to ensure safety and efficiency, reduce project timelines, and eliminate waste and redundancies.
