Marin General Hospital

Greenbrae, California
The Marin General Hospital Replacement Project comprises three separate buildings necessary to replace the required acute care programs, provide adequate parking, and provide necessary outpatient support for the community. These buildings include a 294,000 sf Acute Care Building, an 80,000 sf Ambulatory Services Building, and a 415-space Parking Structure.

The acute care hospital replacement, entitled MGH 2.0, is four-stories plus a basement and houses most of the key diagnostic and treatment functions of the facility including Emergency, Diagnostic Imaging, and the Interventional Platform (Surgery). Also included are private rooms which include 18 ICU beds, 7 NICU beds, and 91 surgery beds. The patient rooms, waiting areas, and staff lounges are all organized around the exterior gardens and views to maximize the patient and staff experience. Patient interaction zones, referred to as “lanterns,” are provided on every nursing unit facing Mt. Tamalpias. These lanterns include indoor/outdoor patios for patient, visitor, and staff use.

MGH 2.0 is designed to support staff flexibility and efficiency. Adequate support space, staff areas and storage have all been right-sided to ensure maximum operational efficiency. These features will also have a positive impact on a goal of the hospital — patient safety. Waiting zones are designed as indoor/outdoor spaces views to the site gardens to take advantage of the Hospital’s hillside location.
