Campus Expansion

at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital

BWFH's Campus Expansion

Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital received approval for the Determination of Need (DoN) submission in May 2022 to begin working on a campus expansion program to better support care in our communities. Construction began in May of 2023.

Construction Update: May 20 to 31, 2024

Third-Floor Hillside Garage

Work continues on underground plumbing and utilities. Framing of a curtain wall has also begun, requiring intermittent use of the Whitcomb Avenue entrance for the next 12 weeks.  

Inpatient Addition

Work is progressing for the inpatient addition with interior work and exterior wall installation ongoing. Staff and patients should expect intermittent disruptions to the loop road during this time.

Street Enhancements

Work for the new signaling system is beginning in late May. In preparation, Centre Street sidewalk repair will take place from May 28 to 31. This work will require the closure of one lane of traffic between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm. Utility connections on Allandale Road will also begin on May 28 and continue through June. This work will require the closure of one lane of traffic from 8 am to 3 pm. Road markings, including a new bicycle lane on Centre Street, will be completed after installation of the signaling systems. The Blue Bike station is expected to be fully in place later in the summer.

Interior and Roof

Work is also underway inside the hospital and on the roof to accommodate the new inpatient addition. Please expect that there will be increased noise and possible disturbances within the hospital while construction activity continues. Individual departments within the hospital that will be directly impacted will be notified of any possible disruptions to operations ahead of time in order to properly prepare and mitigate impacts to patients, visitors and staff.
