Martha’s Vineyard Hospital embarked on a project to expand its healthcare services, providing residents and visitors with state-of-the-art care. The new 90,000 square foot replacement facility was constructed on the current 6-acre hospital property, replacing the former hospital building and saving the hospital thousands in annual utility costs.
The two-story building includes a medical/surgical unit, a labor and delivery suite, an intensive care unit, physical therapy department, an emergency department with recovery suite, inpatient rooms, laboratories, and a MRI suite. It was programmed, designed and constructed utilizing the Planetree Method of Care, a patient-centered approach to creating environments to enhance healing and well-being.
This project was the first healthcare facility to earn a LEED Gold rating in Massachusetts. Sustainable features include a storm water retention pond, a roof garden, and solar panels
