REVISED AND REMINDER: BMC Ambulance Bay Move - October 22 6a- October 24 6a

From Boston Medical Center: "Colleagues,


We are excited to report that BMC is making great progress on our new building and campus redesign.  We are preparing for the next phase in the project which includes delivery of large Radiology equipment on 10/22.  To accommodate this delivery, we will be required to move our emergent ambulance traffic that weekend from our ED Ambulance Bay on Albany Street to Shapiro Drive.


From Friday, 10/21 at 8:00pm until Monday, 10/24 at 6:00am:

·         Emergency ambulances will park on Shapiro Drive.

·         Non-Emergent and patient transfers will park in front of the Menino Pavilion on Harrison Avenue

·         No employee or patient drop offs will be allowed on Shapiro Drive. 

·         Additional BPD and Public Safety details will be placed along Albany Street  and Mass Ave to direct traffic.


We will follow the same procedures as past moves—additional staff at triage, additional public safety details, signs and fencing to guide traffic."
