Michigan Medicine to build $920M hospital

University of Michigan in Ann Arbor plans to spend $920 million to build a new hospital, which is expected to take five years to complete.

University of Michigan's board of regents unanimously approved the project Sept. 19, more than a year after voting to explore the feasibility of building the new hospital.

The new 12-story hospital will have 264 private rooms. David Spahlinger, MD, president of the University of Michigan Health System, the clinical arm of Michigan Medicine, said 110 beds will be relocated from University Hospital in Ann Arbor.

"The new adult inpatient hospital will allow the relocation of 110 beds currently in semi-private rooms at University Hospital to the new hospital," he said in a news release. "As a result, all Michigan Medicine inpatient beds will be single private rooms."

The new 690,000 gross-square-foot hospital will also house 20 operating rooms and three interventional radiology suites.
