Emergency services will be just minutes away for communities in mid-Michigan


When someone has an emergency, it’s important to find health care, and fast. That’s why the new McLaren Greater Lansing health care campus includes expanded emergency services as well as a dedicated oncology convenient care centrally located in the Greater Lansing area minutes from East Lansing, Okemos, Haslett, and Mason.

“One of the many benefits of coming to our state-of-the-art emergency room is that if you need to be admitted to the hospital for care, you will be admitted to a brand new, beautiful facility that is minutes away from most communities that surround the Lansing area,” said Christine Perry, DO, Medical Director of the Emergency Department at McLaren Greater Lansing. “There is also easy access to the hospital from major highway systems including 96, 127, and 496.”

The emergency department at the new McLaren Greater Lansing health care campus will include an EMS garage for easier access to the hospital for EMS workers, specially designed trauma rooms and elevators, an observation unit for patients who need close monitoring, specially designed mental health rooms with features to keep patients and staff safe, and dedicated CT, X-ray, ultrasound and vascular imaging right in the emergency department with all private rooms.

The department will include additional patient rooms and a vertical express unit for quicker treatment of patients who need to be seen by a medical professional and then go home to recover.

“Our vertical express unit will be a great benefit for the community to access emergency services while getting through the department quickly,” said Dr. Perry. “We will have all new equipment, expand our services offered, and continue to recruit a broader spectrum of coverage so we are better able to meet the needs of the community so no one will have to travel to get the specialized care that they need.”

Along with the emergency department, McLaren Greater Lansing will include a dedicated oncology convenient care for patients undergoing cancer treatments when it opens in March 2022.

“The dedicated oncology convenient care was designed to be comfortable and convenient for our patients,” said Nick Erikson, ‎Regional Director of Cancer Services at ‎Karmanos Cancer Institute. “Our experienced staff will be able to help with issues such as dehydration, nausea, vomiting, or pain, serving the needs of oncology patients.”
