DANVERS, MA – Healthcare and community leaders gathered here last night to celebrate the completion of the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care. The project, a collaborative effort between Massachusetts General Hospital and North Shore Medical Center has created what North Shore president Robert Norton called the facility the “largest freestanding ambulatory medical center in Massachusetts”.
Located for easy access just off Route 128 north of Boston, the new Center emphasizes the delivery of state-of-the-art outpatient care with the patient in mind. It provides 12 operating suites, a breast health center, cardiology evaluation and diagnostic unit, and advanced diagnostic imaging services. Particular attention was paid to the North Shore Cancer Center, whose patients have a separate entrance and with treatment rooms that overlook the tranquil landscape of the Waters River.
The Center, which began construction in 2007, will open to patients on June 1.
