Ground broken for Health Park addition

11-27-15 MidMichigan Health Park MtGround has been broken on an expansion to MidMichigan Health Park – Mt. Pleasant, located at 4851 E. Pickard Street. The 94,000-square-foot project will add a two-story addition to the existing 25,000-square-foot Health Park. The $34 million expansion is slated to be completed by spring 2017.

“The expansion of MidMichigan Health Park – Mt. Pleasant is an exciting development for MidMichigan Health,” said Mark Santamaria, president of MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot. “The project allows us the opportunity to meet the health care needs of a growing Isabella County. We will consolidate our many services in the area under one roof, with new and expanded services for patient care available 24-7. This project is going to allow us to give our patients greater access to care locally.”

The expansion includes the addition of an Ambulatory Surgery Center featuring one operating room, two procedure rooms, and 12 pre-op and recovery beds. The center is a joint venture with local surgeons, MidMichigan Health and Regent Surgical Health.

The Health Park in Mt. Pleasant will also feature a free-standing Emergency Department. Open 24-hours, seven days a week, the 12-bed department will offer comprehensive emergency care for adult and pediatric patients by board-certified emergency medicine physicians. Ambulance patients will be accepted and the expansion will also include a helipad. A Short Stay Unit also will be added adjacent to the Emergency Department. Featuring five beds, this unit supports Emergency Department patients requiring less than 24 hour observation, ambulatory surgery patients requiring longer recovery and infusion patients.

Additional clinical features to the expansion include additional physician offices and specialty clinics, a new laboratory and retail pharmacy, CT scanner, mammography, physical therapy, as well as an enlargement of the current Infusion Center. MidMichigan has contracted with Three Rivers Corporation for the design, architectural plans and construction management for the project.

“This enlargement to our campus in Mt. Pleasant is forward thinking for the health care industry,” said Santamaria. “It’s pre-emptive of the next generation of medical center concepts and MidMichigan Health is a leader in the delivery of state-of-the-art health care.”
