Miriam Hospital’s “amended” institutional master plan will be considered by the City Plan Commission at their next meeting on Wednesday, June 16th at 4:30pm at the Public Safety Complex. See our new section with the “Latest Miriam News” for more about this important meeting.
The Miriam Hospital plans to submit its Institutional Master Plan on Oct. 20 to the Providence City Plan Commission. In advance of that presentation, the hospital encourages its neighbors to attend a community forum to discuss plans for the main campus. The forum will be Thursday, Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Hurvitz Board Room (located next to the gift shop) in the main hospital building. In general, the hospital isn't submitting anything new for 2015, but the IMP requires that its plans be submitted every five years. As the previous two submissions have indicated, the hospital hopes to create single-patient hospital rooms in Building A some time within the next five years. Director of Community Relations Monica Anderson has indicated that the plan does not have any designs or rendering to date, nor is there current funding for the project. Kindly RSVP for the discussion meeting by calling the Neighborhood Hotline at (401) 793-4040. Refreshments will be served.
