Mercy Health System of Maine Builds New Medical Campus
The first phase of Francis Cauffman Architects’ master plan puts a hospital and a medical office building on a new campus and rehabilitates a former industrial site
With the completion of the first phase of its new hospital, Mercy Health System of Maine—the fourth largest health system in the state—builds the first new acute care hospital in the City of Portland, Maine, in more than 25 years. Francis Cauffman Architects created the master plan for the 42-acre greenfield site along the Fore River, which ultimately will accommodate a 50% increase in the hospital’s clinic space. Francis Cauffman also designed the first two buildings—a $49.5 million, 151,000-square-foot short-stay hospital and a $16 million, 80,000-square-foot medical office building.
