The design team was charged with providing detailed analysis, architectural design, and medical planning services for a proposed three-story, 170,000 sq. ft. infill renovation of MidMichigan Medical Center’s Midland campus (Midland, Mich.). The goal of the project is to create a new Cardiovascular Center of Excellence while replacing the existing 1940s 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 of the emergency department as well as the 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 service area of MidMichigan Health. It is focused on improving the operations of a disjointed practice today, to support a holistic approach to patient care.
