Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) broke ground on a multi-year construction project for a new clinical care facility, enabling MGH to address ongoing growth of services and the need for increased capacity. The facility will be home to the Mass General Cancer Center and the Corrigan Minehan Heart Center. Two inpatient towers will house 482 single-bed inpatient rooms. 

Containing more than 1.5 million square feet, the new facility will be located within the MGH campus. It also will feature larger operating, interventional and procedural rooms, imaging facilities, infusion rooms, exam rooms, and support space for pharmacy and dietary services. Six levels of underground parking accommodating 864 vehicles for patients and families will replace the outdated Parkman Garage. Parking spaces for 566 bicycles and green roof terraces are also included. 

The sustainable structure will be powered largely using renewable electricity, reflecting a commitment to significantly reduce the hospital’s carbon footprint. Built to withstand major flooding and high winds, the building will be MGH’s most resilient facility, providing its own energy and systems for up to 96 hours during natural or manmade disasters. 

Construction is anticipated to last seven years, with the new facility opening in phases between 2027 and 2030.
