Delayed Hospital Project Restarts

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down so many events and projects in and around healthcare facilities for the last year. Now, slowly, many construction projects that went dormant in 2020 are starting up again.

For example, Ann Arbor-based Michigan Medicine will start construction on its $920 million hospital in the coming months, after delaying the project last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Becker’s Hospital Review.

Michigan Medicine said its planning team has resumed design work on the facility.

The 12-story, 690,000-square-foot hospital is expected to house 264 private rooms, 20 operating rooms and three interventional radiology suites.

Citing a financial loss exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the academic health system delayed the project in May 2020. With the delay, the new hospital is slated to open in the fall of 2025.
