MMC Campus Replacement & Modernization Project
Maine Medical Center is excited to begin work on the largest modernization and replacement project in its history – a patient-focused initiative that will enable the state’s largest hospital to meet the most urgent healthcare needs well into the future.
Altogether, the $534 million project will create 128 new private patient rooms, add 19 procedure rooms for surgeries and other complex treatments, provide an additional 225 spaces for patient and visitor parking, and consolidate MMC employee parking into one nearby garage that will meet current demand and future growth. The project will also open Maine Medical Center to Congress Street with a new building and entrance that is expected to dramatically enhance a major gateway to the city and provide for expanded ambulatory practice facilities. It will create modern, state-of-the-art practice space allowing MMC and Maine Medical Partners to further develop its ambulatory care practices in Scarborough, convenient and easily accessible for patients and their families.
Work on the first of three project phases began in Spring 2018, beginning with construction of two patient care floors with 64 new oncology patient rooms on top of the Coulombe Family Tower (expected completion date of Fall 2019) and adding three levels to its visitor parking garage for an additional 225 parking spaces (expected completion date of October 2018).
