Greater Lansing Replacement Hospital, McLaren Health
Lansing, MI
Redefining a region.
Patient care centered around caregiver efficiency.
In a league of its own
McLaren Greater Lansing (MGL) is a complete replacement campus. Previously landlocked in a residential area within Lansing, the new hospital is located on a Michigan State University (MSU) research property just off the highway, allowing for easier access and a boost in visibility. The campus contains the nine-story hospital and an outpatient facility with cancer center.

A unique aspect to this project is the utilization of design assist engineering. With the design assist partners co-located in the local HED office, there were daily conversations regarding value in systems to balance first costs with long term value. The resulting savings to the owner meant more opportunities for program development and overall amenities for the patient, in addition to better coordination and overall understanding of the building systems that came from the process.

Performance improvements in operations are primarily focused on the emergency department, interventional platform and patient care units. The emergency department utilizes split flow operations, while the interventional platform that spans two floors takes advantage of shared spaces, flexible prep/recovery zones and standardization. Patient care units have been designed largely around caregiver efficiency.
Results
The hospital campus will have physical and operational connections to the MSU medical school and other clinical teaching programs associated with the College of Human Medicine.
The scale of the development makes this project the largest medical campus creation in the state and will become a major employer through synergies with MSU and other regional hospitals connected to McLaren Health.
