Our New, State-of-the-Art Building

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is at the forefront of innovation in health care – for our patients, our communities and our region.


BIDMC's New Inpatient BuildingAs part of our mission to provide extraordinary care supported by world-class research and education, work has begun on a new inpatient building.

BIDMC's first new building in 20 years has been designed to enable BIDMC to meet the needs of our patients and communities in a rapidly changing health care environment.

Features of the New Inpatient Building

BIDMC's new inpatient building will provide a modern, state-of-the-art environment where patients will receive a new level of health care.

The new inpatient building will include:

  • Single-bedded, family-friendly patient rooms, including:
    • Up to 128 medical-surgical patient rooms, many of which will replace double-bedded rooms elsewhere on BIDMC's West Campus
    • 30 intensive care unit (ICU) rooms
  • Leading-edge surgical suites large enough to accommodate the most advanced surgical procedures and imaging technology
  • Versatile diagnostic and procedural suites with state-of-the-art equipment to handle the most acute patient needs
  • A medical helicopter landing pad — relocated from its current location on the roof of the adjacent Rosenberg Building — to support BIDMC's important role as a major Level 1 Trauma Center for our region
  • An accessible, rooftop green space and healing garden for patients, families and caregivers
  • Energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable designs
  • Conference space with technology that fosters the sharing of innovative scientific and medical knowledge, modern teaching methods, and multidisciplinary teamwork

Our Commitment to the Community

In accordance with Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MADPH) guidelines and MADPH's identified priorities, BIDMC will be allocating funds to the Community-based Health Initiative (CHI).
