MGH West – ASC Building

MGHPO needed to expand their outpatient services to include additional OR’s in the MOB located in Waltham. 6 new OR’s with the capability of expansion for two more are the focus of the project. To assist the OR’s, 24 new PACU bays are included that are available for a 23 hour stay.

Due to the projects remote location and given the amount of supplies needed, an onsite, a stand-alone sterile processing facility is part of the project. Means for a future compounding pharmacy are in place. This work is part of an overall plan to repurpose an office building into a high-level medical office building.
