What's Next?

Patient tower is only the first phase.

New Main Entrance

to be completed in Phase II of the project.

Mary Greeley’s new tower is the first part of the largest capital project in
the medical center’s nearly 100-year history.

Phase II of the project, which is slated to start this spring, consists of three sub phases. Sub Phase One will provide a stunning new main entrance and an enclosed skywalk that will connect the second level of the parking garage to the second level of the hospital, near the cafeteria.

The skywalk will provide a canopied walkway for the ground level main entrance area. The new main lobby will feature stairway from the second floor, and a beautiful wall of windows to allow in a stream of natural light. The revitalized main lobby will provide a more casual, comfortable space for patients and visitors. The hospital gift shop and coffee shop will remain in the main entrance, but in different locations.

New Front Lobby

The revitalized main lobby will provide a more
casual, comfortable space for patients and visitors.

During this sub phase, which should be completed in spring 2015, the exterior of the existing building will be refaced to match the exterior of the new patient tower and vertical addition. This will involve careful removal of the current façade.

Sub Phase Two will focus on an expanded and modernized Emergency Department on the southeast side of Mary Greeley Medical Center. This phase is tentatively scheduled to be completed in fall 2015. 

The final phase, Sub Phase Three, will be complete in winter 2015 – spring 2016 and will equip Mary Greeley Medical Center with a new drive-thru ambulance bay. 

The second phase and all of its sub phases will require temporary changes to the street entrances to the hospital. These plans will be announced well in advance of the work.
