McLaren Greater Lansing Broke Ground on a New $450 million Health Care Campus

The future of health care in our region is one step closer thanks to your help. McLaren Greater Lansing broke ground on a new $450 million health care campus in collaboration with Michigan State University on Monday, December 18, 2018. The event marked the beginning of construction on the acute care hospital portion of the project.

The Lansing replacement hospital project offers us a unique opportunity to partner with a Big Ten university and transform our relationship into the foreseeable future. This is a significant investment by the McLaren Health Care system, and one that required the work of many people throughout the system to become reality.

"It's taken at least a decade of time that many of us put into this project to get us to this point, and we're excited about the investment," said Phil Incarnati, President and CEO of McLaren Health Care. "We believe we're helping to train some of the finest physicians in the country, and this platform is only going to make that better." 

We're working with our physicians, staff, patients and community to redesign health care from the ground up, starting with direct input in our design lab from the doctors and care teams that will be using some of the 240 beds in our new hospital every day.

"In three years we'll have an opportunity to deliver a product that you're not going to find anywhere else," said Kirk Ray, President and CEO of McLaren Greater Lansing. "This is the culmination of months spent with physicians, staff and community members to pull together a design unlike any other."

Design and construction on the campus's medical services building and cancer center will begin within the next year. The current estimated timeline to open the facilities is early 2022.

"By enhancing the opportunities for our current practitioners, educators, researchers, and staff, we will be the employer of choice for those who seek to make a difference in a world that struggles," said Norman Beauchamp, MSU Associate Provost for Human Health Affairs. "We will bring health and we will bring hope."
