MMED Clinical Inpatient Tower

The adult inpatient hospitals of Michigan Medicine have consistently experienced high demand for inpatient rooms and surgical suites which has led to capacity constraints affecting access for high-acuity patients with complex care needs. As one component of its clinical and facilities strategy, Michigan Medicine is exploring the idea of constructing an adult inpatient tower on the main medical campus. The clinical program would include up to 264 beds and 23 surgical/interventional radiology suites. This added capacity would help Michigan Medicine address patient access, care concerns, and allow for a transition of existing patient care services now located in University Hospital. Due to the complexity of the project, the Board of Regents have authorized commissioning the architectural firm HOK Group, Inc., to complete the schematic design of the hospital and full design of utility, infrastructure, and site work.
