Hord Coplan Macht’s healthcare team provided detailed analysis, architectural design, landscape architecture, interior design, and medical planning services for a proposed three-story, 170,000 sf infill addition to MidMichigan Medical Center’s Midland campus. The goal of the project is to create a new Cardiovascular Center of Excellence while replacing the existing 1940’s hospital that has reached the end of its useful life.
In addition, the project includes a phased redevelopment of the center of the ambulatory portion of the campus, and consolidates clinical departments, including a cardiac diagnostic suite, multiple cardiac clinics, patient outreach laboratory, radiology, and vascular clinic; while also providing future space for the expansion for the emergency department, pathology laboratory, and medical offices.
The design solution creates a landmark building to serve as the new home for this integrated service line that serves the 23-county area of MidMichigan Health. It is focused on improving the operations of a disjointed practice today, to support a holistic approach to patient care.
The building stands out as a marker on the campus – a modern building with soaring roofs and a three-story glass atrium that beckons to patients as they arrive. Natural materials, such as brick and stone, in a contemporary cooler palette, create a contrast with the red brick construction of the previous 40 years without alienating the patient population. Functionally the building integrates 6 different outpatient clinics, including a cardiac research program, on a single floor. Physicians and staff have connected off-stage workspace that encourages collaboration within and between different specialties. Directly above, integrated testing services allow for multiple same-day appointments. Including Cardiac Rehab and Community Outreach spaces allows the center to focus on the entire patient continuum including wellness and prevention programs.
Construction began in June of 2017 and is slated to be completed in 2020.
