Brigham and Women’s Hospital Opens New Building for Transformative Medicine
On October 3, 2016, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a part of NEC member Partners Healthcare, opened its new $475 million Building for Transformative Medicine.
Located on the Longwood campus in Boston, the new 383,000 square foot building houses new outpatient clinics for orthopedics, rheumatology, and neurology. It also features five new MRI machines, including a new state-of-the-art MRI scanner that is the first of its kind in a clinical setting in North America. The building was designed to bring together researchers and healthcare providers who traditionally worked in separate spaces.
“We’re extremely proud to be opening this building, one of the most technologically sophisticated patient care and research facilities in the country,” said Paul Anderson, MD, PhD, chief academic officer and senior vice president of Research at Brigham and Women’s Health Care. “The building is designed to provide as much access to natural light as possible, and an open floor plan for collaboration will provide scientists with research spaces that foster creativity, productivity and a robust exchange of ideas.”
