Maine Medical Center Scarborough Campus

Scarborough, Maine

This health care facility not only represents the trend to deliver many services at one location, it is also an example of how a defunct retail plaza can be recycled and reshaped.

The facility consolidates outpatient oncology services and related programs previously in several locations. And it also contains a highly sophisticated diagnostic laboratory used by many health care providers.

Pavilions and covered walkways eliminate the boxy plaza look and provide shelter and convenience to patients entering and leaving the building. Inside, a corridor system is designed as an interior “streetscape” with a series of connected spaces and skylights, creating a warm, reassuring environment.
