Boston is home to one of the world’s most incredible hospitals. Brigham and Women’s Hospital is the center for some of the country’s most complex medical cases in all fields of medicine.
In 2014, the hospital ranked in the top 10 specialty areas of cancer, cardiology, heart surgery, gynecology, nephrology and rheumatology- not to mention being a top 10 hospital overall year after year.
In 1980, the prestigious hospital was formed when three of Boston’s Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals, Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Robert Breck Brigham Hospital and the Boston Hospital for Women all merged together.
Over the years the hospital has expanded and grown to a large campus with a host of architectural buildings. At the hospital’s main campus, is the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Main Entrance and Emergency Department, the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center, the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Hospital, One Brigham Circle, Longwood Avenue and the Brigham Urogynecology Group.
A number of different architectural firms have designed and completed the additions to the hospital since it first started treating patients. NNRJ, TK&A Architecture, Cannon Design, KMD Architecture and Suffolk Construction are a few of the firms that have contributed to the huge success of the hospital. Each firm designed the building for optimal lighting for the patients’ best interest and comfort.
With completion planned for 2016, the hospital has designed a new state of the art 11-story Brigham Building for the Future that will house 8 floors of research units, 2 floors of clinics, an imaging facility, conference and teaching center and a 400 car garage. The design, which will achieve LEED Gold certification, will provide extensive daylight to the building for the well being of patients and staff. Special sunshades on the exterior well give patients the ability to control the light to their needs.
As one of the nations premier academic medical centers, BirdMaster has developed an important partnership with Brigham and Women’s Hospital to preserve the architecture of their ever-growing hospital campus from pest bird infestations. BirdMaster is proud to help keep the hospital up and running so patients can receive the best possible care long into the future.
