A new 270,000 square-foot, glass-paneled building would face Congress Street, where a new main entrance is planned. The new entry would replace the main entrance currently off of Bramhall Street that is accessed by winding through a West End neighborhood.

The new building would be the cornerstone of the expansion, featuring 20 new operating rooms and 64 inpatient beds, and would be a commanding presence on Congress Street, Portland’s main thoroughfare.
