Martha’s Vineyard Hospital embarked on a project to expand its healthcare services, providing island residents and visitors with continued state-of-the-art care. The new 90,000 sf replacement facility was constructed on the current 6-acre hospital property, replacing the sprawling former hospital building and saving the facility thousands in annual utility costs.
The compact, 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, patient rooms, laboratories, and an MRI suite. It was programmed, designed and constructed utilizing the Planetree Method of Care, a patient-centered approach, creating environments to enhance healing, health 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.
