December 17, 2018

Gresham Smith announces that it is providing design and planning services for McLaren Health Care in Lansing, Michigan in support of their collaboration with Michigan State University (MSU) to create a new healthcare campus. In addition to the development of a campus master plan, the firm is providing planning, architecture and interior design services for the new $451 million McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital, a replacement teaching hospital, medical office building and cancer center. As these first components of the master plan are designed, the team is proud of how they will be a reflection of the high-quality, safe and efficient care provided to the community and how they’ll inspire continued learning and innovation.

“McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital is an important step in building a new community asset and enhanced relations with neighboring Michigan State University. Working with McLaren Health Care, this teaching hospital aims to become the destination of choice for the community and transform the experience for patients, families, and caregivers,” said Steve Stokes, AIA, LEED GA, CLGB, vice president, Gresham Smith. “We have a great opportunity to drive value for the community, the health system and the university by applying our creativity and focusing our design on LEAN principles, safety and the human experience.”

The 517,000 square-foot, 240-bed, nine-story greenfield facility will house medical/surgical units, orthopedics, general surgery, labor and delivery, inpatient psychiatric, an intensive care unit, an emergency department and radiology. The new hospital consolidates two Lansing-area hospitals and will be built along with the 250,000 square-foot medical office building, 32,000 square-foot cancer center, and parking structure on a 40-acre site. The team anticipates the project will complete by 2022.

Gresham Smith has teamed with Harley Ellis Devereaux who will be providing engineering services and is the architect-of-record for the new hospital.
