Mass General Hospital Names New Two-Tower Complex After Philanthropists
The two-tower complex that Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is building on Boston’s Charles Street will be named after InterSystems Corp. founder Phillip Ragon and his wife, Susan, the Boston Business Journal reported.
The building, which broke ground last year, will feature more than 1.5 million square feet of space and will house the Mass General Cancer Center and Corrigan Minehan Heart Center. It will include 482 single-bed inpatient rooms across two towers.
The nearly two-million-square-foot complex will be named the Phillip and Susan Ragon Building, MGH executives said in a letter, after the couple made a “monumental” contribution towards the project’s construction. The Ragons gave MGH a $200-million gift in 2019 that the hospital called the largest in its history.
The MGH complex is expected to open in two phases, between 2027 and 2030, according to the Business Journal.
