Surgical Pavilion and MOB, Heywood Hospital

Expanding access to care.
A building modernization to match recent service expansion.
Idyllic overlook
Nestled at the top of the second largest hill in Gardner, MA, overlooking the beautiful Crystal Lake, Heywood Hospital is the flagship of a two-hospital system providing emergency, critical care, surgical care, and a wide range of primary and specialty care services to the residents of rural North Central Massachusetts and the larger service area extending North to the border of South Central New Hampshire. The hospital has been experiencing a continuous period of growth in services delivered to meet the needs of the region.

As a result of this expansion of services over the past five years, Heywood Hospital is now at a critical juncture where it needs to modernize and expand its surgical services delivery platform, as well as expand outpatient services capacity, and significantly upgrade physical plant infrastructure.

Working with HED, Heywood Hospital will be able to utilize a unique model of financing to expand and renovate the existing OR's and successfully position a 44,000 SF addition and 300 spaces of additional parking on their challenging hilltop site, which is surrounded by special permit environmental areas.
