University of Michigan may convert old Mott Hospital into extension of adult hospital

University of Michigan may convert old Mott Hospital into extension of adult hospital | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

What do you do with a LOT of unused or under-utilized space in your medical complex?


"Although the [University of Michigan] Health System has spent about seven years planning for the new Mott [children's hospital], little has been said about the fate of the old complex, which opened in 1969 with 200 beds and was renovated in the 1980s.


The old Mott Hospital is physically connected to the University Hospital, making a conversion a natural way to expand the capacity of the adult hospital.
It was not immediately clear whether the U-M Health System envisions the proposal as a permanent solution to meet projected increases in patient volume or whether it would be a temporary solution.


'There’s been a lot of conversations about that looks like, how many beds, what kinds of services,' said Loree Collett, associate hospital administrator for Mott and Von Voigtlander and operational lead for the new Mott construction project.


Hospital executives were quick to say that the university had not made a formal decision to press ahead with the conversion project.
The new Mott Hospital has enjoyed a wave of publicity in recent months, but the University Hospital remains the university’s biggest health care operation.


The 11-story University Hospital, which opened in 1986, has 1.79 million square feet — which is 62.7 percent larger than the sparkling new Mott Hospital facility."

Cleveland Clinic's new master plan envisions bigger, greener campus with ample room to grow for decades

Cleveland Clinic's new master plan envisions bigger, greener campus with ample room to grow for decades | SCUP Links | Scoop.it
In all, the plan identifies sites for 14 major new buildings between Euclid and Chester avenues.


"A new master plan completed by Ohio’s second-biggest employer envisions a big, green future for the institution’s 160-acre main campus west of University Circle.

The plan, released to The Plain Dealer last month after several requests, shows that the Clinic has room for dramatic growth over the next 30 to 50 years — a prospect that could mean more jobs and economic activity for decades to come.


But while the plan offers a stirring glimpse of the Clinic’s future, it does not address how it could also reshape its outer edges, often dominated by surface parking lots, or help spur revitalization around it. The message is that now is not the time for the Clinic to reach out in a more substantial way."

Umich hospital growth continues with opening of $17.5M emergency room expansion

Umich hospital growth continues with opening of $17.5M emergency room expansion | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"More importantly, it provides additional sorely needed space, said Jennifer Gegenheimer Holmes, director of operations for the department. 'We were taking care of patients in the hall, she said.

That’s a literal statement. [SCUP staff have in fact been in that position!] A hallway in the existing emergency department was turned into a patient area. Starting today, hospital employees will again be able to use it as a hall.


The $17.7 million renovation project at the hospital has created 27 new patient rooms, bringing the department’s total to 90. The rooms opening today mark the final stage of the renovation, which also expanded and improved the triage, arrival and waiting areas and created a new space for psychiatric emergency services. Officials say the new space will also help them deliver care more efficiently and reduce patient wait times."
