Memorial Regional Medical Center
The Master Plan depicts the ultimate build-out of the MRMC 68-acre parcel. The expansion of the hospital core occurs primarily towards Meadowbridge utilizing the existing surface parking areas. A new entry plaza is created with two access points to Meadowbridge, formalizing its role as the principal approach to the facility. A Main Street with a mixed-use village character extends eastward, paralleling Pleasant Grove and offering a more direct campus entry from I-295. Surrounding the core expansion on the other sides, new office buildings, parking structures and other proposed infill uses complete the existing campus fabric.
The west campus expands the MOB I complex with lined parking structures and a residential component. Adjacent to Rainbow Station, two transitional care houses frame a new street of rowhouses and live-work units that connects to the adjacent retail.
The central campus is focused around a new entrance plaza marked by the signature tower and a tall bed wing. Both the new Memorial Main Street and a more direct entry from Meadowbridge Road access the elongated arrival plaza, flanked by water features. The emergency entrance has a dedicated narrower drive just to the west. The overall roofscape is completed by a network of new office buildings and lined parking structures. Following the charrette, a new medical office building for an orthopedic physicians group was proposed on the cell tower site opposite the new main entrance.
The east campus is the mixed-use, village entry from the I-295 interchange, marked prominently by a proposed hotel tall enough to have highway visibility. The entrance at Meadowbridge Road opens to a street of shops, cafes, signature medical office buildings and specialty pavilions. This thoroughfare, Memorial Main Street, connects the hotel to the new MRMC main entrance.
