SAN RAFAEL, CALIF. — Marin County officials have broken ground on MGH 2.0, the $535 million replacement for Marin General Hospital in the Greenbrae submarket of San Rafael, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco.
The original hospital opened in 1952. It will continue to operate throughout the construction process.
Phase I of MGH 2.0 will include two new towers that house 114 private rooms, an expanded emergency department and six new operating/procedural suites. The buildings will feature rooftop gardens, balconies and natural light in every patient room to support a healing environment for patients and families.
The new facilities are scheduled to open to patients in mid-2020. Once Phase I is complete, work will commence on a five-story, 100,000-square-foot ambulatory services building and a second parking structure.
The project team has already completed MGH 2.0’s first parking facility, a five-level structure with rooftop solar panels that will be functional for both the current and future hospitals.
McCarthy Building Cos. is building the hospital, which Perkins Eastman designed. The hospital is represented by Vertran Associates, which specializes in healthcare capital projects and provides project management.
