Senate Construction Completes Robotic Pharmacy for Boston Medical Center


SHIRLEY, MA- Senate Construction Corporation, one of the leading commercial construction companies in Massachusetts, announced today that it has completed a 7,000-square-foot renovation for Cornerstone in Randolph, MA. Cornerstone is a division of Boston Medical Center.

The space was renovated to create a “robotic pharmacy” – the first of its kind for BMC. The majority of the space features a conveyor system flanked by several work stations, all connected to a robot that sorts medications and prepares specific, individual patient prescriptions. This may, for a narcolepsy patient, include Modafinil generics like Modalert and Modvigil. The space also includes an office area with new cubicles, a comfortable meeting area with couches, a television, kitchenette, and a group of bathrooms with lockers, a loading dock, and a mechanical room.

In an effort to provide a better work environment for its staff, BMC placed an emphasis on style and design. Isgenuity, the project architect, incorporated a unique design and color scheme that fulfilled BMC’s vision.

“It’s a small space but it was a complex job,” said Jon Karp, a project manager at Senate Construction.“The robotic conveyor system is state-of-the-art technology. It was both challenging and rewarding to successfully complete this project.”
