Michigan Medicine is devoted to excellent patient care. That’s why we’re resuming construction of a new facility that will modernize and transform inpatient and surgical care and increase patient access on the Ann Arbor medical campus.
The new 12-story hospital will house 264 private rooms capable of converting to intensive care, a state-of-the-art neurosciences center, high-level, specialty care services for cardiovascular and thoracic patients, along with advanced imaging. Locating these services together will enable healthcare providers to quickly respond to complex cases and deliver state-of-the-art treatments.
At 690,000-gross-square-feet, the building will provide more access to care for adult patients at Michigan Medicine. The new adult inpatient hospital will also allow the relocation of 110 beds currently in semi-private rooms at University Hospital to the new hospital, which will improve patient safety, quality and experience, while creating space for family members to participate in their loved one’s care, healing and recovery. In total, the project will add 154 new beds to the medical campus.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of innovation with a new hospital that will support the extraordinary work of our faculty, nurses and other providers and our research community,” said Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., the executive vice president of medical affairs for U-M, CEO of Michigan Medicine and dean of the Medical School.
“Michigan Medicine is eager to resume construction on this transformative new hospital. We know this new facility will allow more patients to access our care, and this is a crucial investment in our mission to advance health to serve Michigan and the world,” said David Miller, M.D., president of the University of Michigan Health System. “We are often running at nearly 90 percent capacity in our current hospitals, so we are looking forward to 2025 when we expect this new building will provide us with additional state-of-the art and patient-centered care facilities.”
The building will be constructed adjacent to the Frankel Cardiovascular Center, with plans for bridge and tunnel connections to existing inpatient care facilities.
The new hospital was designed with lean principles for efficiency of flow and responsiveness to user needs. It will include:
- Family spaces throughout and space for loved ones to visit in each patient room.
- Centralized collaboration spaces in each patient area to enhance continuity of care.
- Two floors with 20 operating rooms built with the latest technology, many larger than Michigan Medicine’s current ORs and three interventional radiology suites
- Patient rooms that allow for more complex care, including capability for all spaces to support intensive care.
