The 80,000-square-foot building in Woburn, Massachusetts, will be renovated to accommodate Winchester Hospital clinicians and other area medical providers. MPA is providing interior architecture and healthcare design services for the base building upgrade and 38,000-square-foot tenant fit-out for Winchester Hospital.
National Development, a real estate development and investment firm, selected MPA to retrofit the existing office building into a patient-focused medical office building.
The four-story building will receive upgrades to the lobby, common, and tenant areas, including new finishes, lighting, and electrical service. New mechanical systems will be specifically designed for medical use, and a stretcher-size elevator will be installed.
The ground floor will offer an entrance with sliding doors for easy access and a lobby concierge station to direct visitors. Winchester Hospital will occupy half of the renovated building.
Winchester Hospital is relocating the Breast Care Center and Community Health Institute from its Baldwin Park II facility to larger space in this new facility.
The Winchester Hospital Breast Care Center is a regional evaluation center offering breast health resources to women, including advanced imaging technology and digital mammography. The Community Health Institute offers wellness and prevention programs and services such as diabetes screenings, lactation consultations, massage, and acupuncture.
MPA was selected to design patient and clinical areas for the project, which is slated for completion in late 2012.
