Milford, MA – Ground was broken on March 28th for a new 115,000sf addition, including lower level parking for 52, at Milford Regional Medical Center (MRMC). The two-story facility will include an emergency department, intensive care unit and private patient rooms.
The project will more than double the size of the current emergency department and include expanded diagnostic imaging space.
On the upper level, the ICU will include 16 new expanded patient rooms to accommodate the latest technology. A 24-bed telemetry unit will offer private rooms for patients and families with family sleeping space, private bathrooms, televisions and kitchen accommodations. The new addition includes reconfiguring the medical center so that eventually every room will be private.
“This is a transformational project that will result in a new, more modern, more efficient, more comfortable, and better healthcare facility,” said Francis M. Saba, CEO of MRMC.
Consigli Construction Co. of Milford was selected as construction manager to build the hospital’s major $54 million facility, which will accommodate 70,000 visits annually.
The project is slated for fall 2015 completion. Architect is TRO Jung/Brannen and owner’s project manager is Murphy McManus.
Participating in the groundbreaking ceremonies were Peter McManus, principal of Murphy McManus; Senator Richard T. Moore; Vascen J. Bogigian, MRMC board trustee and building committee chairman; Edward J. Kelly, MRMC president; Francis M. Saba, MRMC CEO; John J. Burns, MRMC board trustee chair; Tina M.
