In 2013, Boston Medical Center (BMC) launched a clinical campus redesign project to prepare the hospital to thrive well into the future. This overall effort transformed a busy urban thoroughfare and created a welcoming front door for BMC. With the completion of the Menino Additions and Renovation project earlier this year, all inpatient operations have been consolidated to the Menino side of the campus. The consolidated hospital design is expected to save BMC more than $25 million in annual operating costs and has dramatically increased the number of private rooms. This presentation will explore how patient-centered care remained the primary focus throughout the transformation. We will address how BMC’s mission: “exceptional care without exception” was integrated into the transition process and informed all design decisions. And discover how, the integrated project team ensured the redesign is tailored for the needs of the surrounding inner-city, Boston community.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Summarize the real estate positioning efforts for Boston Medical Center’s hospital campus
  2. Observe the pivotal role BMC’s mission: “exceptional care without exception” plays in the hospital campus redesign
  3. Integrate tactics for rapid and responsive design during an IPD renovation effort
  4. Understand lessons learned through 3 diverse project team perspectives
