Proposed new MMC entrance on Congress Street

Maine Medical Center is planning an expansion to transform the hospital along Congress Street and build new private patient rooms. Currently some empty beds in semi-private rooms cannot be utilized due to gender or disease, which inhibits the hospital's ability to provide care to all patients in a timely manner. The plans will likely be reviewed under a new Institutional Overlay Zone that is under development by the City of Portland Planning Staff. Information on Maine Medical Center's draft Institutional Development Plan and the city's draft framework for the new zoning is available at the links below.
