Boston Children's Hospital, Berthiaume Family South Clinical Building

Boston, MA | 2005

A major addition to the Children?s Hospital Boston campus, the award-winning 11-story Berthiaume Family South Building contains the most advanced medical technology available, including the MROR, the nation?s first mobile, intraoperative imaging system of its kind. This complements a healing environment designed to support young patients and their families while enhancing communication and staff productivity. The addition laterally expands the functions of the Berthiaume Family Building, unifying new and existing facilities so they function with minimal separation. It includes two family-centered intensive care units: a cardiac ICU and medical surgical ICU.

The Berthiaume Family South Building is a landmark in the hospital?s 100-year partnership with the firm. Project challenges included building on a tight urban site that required the relocation of underground utilities and a street. The project implemented a core component of Shepley Bulfinch's master plan for the medical campus.
