McLaren, MSU Health Care, MSU Foundation, and Gillespie Group announce
new development at a groundbreaking event
LANSING, Mich. – The new McLaren health care campus opening Spring 2022 is already growing with the addition of another medical services building, officials announced at a groundbreaking event today. The new 60,200 square foot building will be developed by Lansing-based Gillespie Group.
“In developing the new health care campus for Greater Lansing, we have maintained a focus on adding new ways for patients to access care and strengthen the partnership between McLaren and MSU Health Care,” said Kirk Ray, President and CEO, McLaren Greater Lansing. “The new facility will launch an innovative model for diagnostic imaging care between McLaren and MSU Health Care and make it easier for patients to receive radiologic exams.”
The development of the facility is will have 100-150 construction workers on the job. The Christman Company based in Lansing, is the construction manager for the development. The construction is expected to take 16 months with a target completion date of Summer 2023.
“We are not developing just a typical medical office building. This building creates a destination for outpatient care to meet the needs of the residents in this region and beyond,” said Pat Gillespie, President, Gillespie Group. “It is inspiring to know that this is development will impact our community and health for generations to come.”
The largest component of the facility will be a new outpatient imaging center that McLaren and MSU Health Care are partnering on to improve access to the latest screening and advanced diagnostic technology, for quicker diagnoses. The partnership will include imaging modalities including MRI, CT, x-ray, and ultrasound. With a variety of diagnostic options combined with expertise, patients will receive customized imaging, resulting in less time waiting for treatment options. In addition, McLaren and MSU Health Care are also working to expand programs to train the next generation of physicians and staff in diagnostic imaging services.
“This project is a result of many years of collaboration,” said Seth Ciabotti, CEO, MSU Health Care. “Together MSU Health Care and McLaren will combine the latest imaging technology with the clinical and research expertise of talented physicians, technicians, and researchers. We will provide quicker and more accurate diagnosis, shorter wait times, and research, to meet the growing need in our community.”
When McLaren announced the new health care campus and expanded partnerships with Michigan State University in 2017, it was the beginning of reshaping the University Health Park, part of the MSU Innovation Network (formerly known as the University Corporate Research Park).
“We are thrilled to see additional facilities being developed to support the mission University Health Park,” said David Washburn, CEO, Michigan State University Foundation. “This very ground and surrounding area anchored by McLaren will become a premier destination for medical research and education and will be a beacon for medical innovation.”
