Critical Care/Pratt 6 Construction Project

Our Critical Care Unit and Pratt 6 construction projects will be underway Summer 2016.  This project is designed to help us continue to meet the growing, and increasingly complex, health care needs of people choosing South Shore Hospital for care. 

The proposed project involves building a new, 24-bed critical care unit above the existing Messina Building, where it will be in close proximity to the hospital’s emergency and surgical departments. The new critical care unit will feature comfortable, private rooms that are designed to meet the needs of patients, families and caregivers; providing dignified space for sensitive and confidential conversations that match the hospital’s commitment to patient and family-centered care, and providing increased capacity to better accommodate the advanced technology required to save and sustain lives.

The project also involves renovating the existing critical care area on Pratt 6 into a 24-bed intermediate – or “step down” – patient care unit for the treatment of patients who are discharged from the critical care unit, but who require a higher level of care than is available on a traditional medical-surgical unit. The Pratt 6 project will begin once the new critical care space is finished.

The new construction, central to the provision of trauma and advanced surgical services, will further improve the patient and family experience at South Shore Hospital and allow us to continue providing world-leading clinical resources unavailable elsewhere in our region well into the future.
