New Building Construction

MarinHealth Medical Center is at a crucial turning point in our history. Since we first opened our doors as Marin General Hospital back in 1952 we have seen a five-fold population increase. That means our community counts on us, now more than ever. When California issued a mandate for hospitals to put in place rigorous new regulations in healthcare and seismic safety by 2030, we saw this as an opportunity to provide a state-of-the-art hospital.

Formerly called MGH 2.0, the new MarinHealth Medical Center will be a best-practices environment that will enable our medical teams to do their best work and improve patient outcomes. Plans for the new hospital include:

  • A four-story, 260,000-square-foot hospital replacement building
  • A five-story, 100,000-square-foot ambulatory services building
  • A new staff parking structure—already built and in use

The new hospital building is slated to open in 2020. Every aspect of the hospital will meet or exceed the latest state-mandated standards for earthquake safety.

Our Vision for the New Hospital

Designed by Perkins Eastman Architects in collaboration with hospital administrators, physicians, and staff, the new hospital plan follows four guiding principles:
