A grand opening and dedication ceremony has been held for the South Shore Medical Center’s new 85,000 square foot medical building at 143 Longwater Drive in Norwell.
The new facility consolidates South Shore Medical Center’s existing Norwell office and its Libbey Parkway-Weymouth facility into a single location. Care for most of South Shore Medical Center’s patients has been transferred to the new location, and all patients are expected to be cared for at the new facility by the end of November.
South Shore Medical Center’s new facility features 100 examination rooms and 70 medical offices, along with easier access, additional parking, comfortable waiting rooms and care areas, and more advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment for the Center’s team-based care of patients.
South Shore Medical Center, a division of Atrius Health, has been providing medical care for area residents and families since 1962, and currently operates facilities in Norwell and Kingston, as well as the Atrius Health Women’s Center in Weymouth. South Shore Medical Center is one of six medical groups that comprise Atrius Health, a not-for-profit alliance that services one million adult and pediatric patients at 50 practice locations in Eastern Massachusetts.
“This new facility will enable us to better serve our more than 65,000 patients, and to deliver the highest quality healthcare using our team-based approach,” said Thomas Carroll, chief executive officer of South Shore Medical Center. “This beautiful new building will help us continue our 51-year legacy of helping people stay healthy.”
The new South Shore Medical Center facility was jointly developed by South Shore Medical Center and FoxRock Properties of Quincy, MA. The construction manager for the project was Campanelli Construction, a construction management firm and division of Braintree-based Campanelli.
