Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain has told the BPDA it will file plans for a 45% increase in the number of its in-patient medical-surgical beds, from the current 171 to 249, by building a new five-story wing.
The hospital will also seek city approval to add a total of 332 new parking spaces, in part by replacing one of the current parking garages with a larger one, and wants to add a new driveway onto Allendale Street, according to a letter of intent submitted today, which cites the "growing demand" for services at the hospital.
Faulkner, which opened in 1903, last added beds in 1976, the letter says.
