Mass General Taps Walsh Brothers
BOSTON, MA, January 31, 2017 – Walsh Brothers, Incorporated has been selected by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to build a new Outpatient Rheumatology Clinic and Medical Infusion Center on the hospital's West campus. Building on our 50+ year relationship of working with MGH, Walsh Brothers looks forward to renovating a portion of the Massachusetts General West facility at 52 Second Avenue in Waltham, Massachusetts.
The new Department of Public Health (DPH) licensed Rheumatology Clinic and Medical Infusion Center will include a reception/waiting area, a phlebotomy and vitals area, six exam rooms, nine semi-private infusion treatment areas, administrative areas including offices, nurse stations, a nourishment area, a medication dispensing room, equipment storage, clean supply room, a soiled utility room, and other support spaces. Work also includes associated mechanical and architectural scope elsewhere in the building, careful removal and replacement of finishes in adjoining spaces, as well as accessing vertical shafts for installation of services.
"We trusted Walsh Brothers with this work because of the very special conditions this project requires," said Jonathan Hayward, Senior Project Manager in the Planning and Construction Office at Massachusetts General Hospital. "Walsh Brothers understands our business -- both the need to get this new clinic built quickly so we can deliver first class care to our patients as well as the need to ensure that construction contamination of any kind, including dust, debris or noise, will never interfere with on-going medical care around the campus."
In collaboration with the MGH West, Related Beal and Steffian Bradley Architects construction is expected to be complete by the end of April 2017.
"Having worked on multiple Partners HealthCare/MGH campuses, our team at Walsh Brothers is very familiar with the particular requirements demanded by healthcare facilities," said Marc Fishman, Senior Project Manager, Walsh Brothers, Incorporated. "This is our first visit to MGH West and we look forward to leveraging our expertise gained from years of work on other Partners/MGH campuses."
