Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Spectrum Health hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the reopening of its 426 Michigan Avenue building. The renovation was completed by Granger Construction.
This strategic, integrated campus is located on Michigan Avenue’s Medical Mile, just a few blocks from Spectrum Health’s downtown hospital campus. Integrated care campuses are designed to offer “one-stop” medical care for patients by grouping doctors with diagnostic and treatment services and equipment in one location.
“We are pleased to be able to offer primary health services to people who live and work downtown,” said Tina Freese Decker, Spectrum Health’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. “This facility will offer convenient, coordinated care.”
Started in August 2016, the 426 Michigan Avenue project comprised the complete renovation of a three-story, 35,500 square-feet, state-of-the-art medical office building including construction of a new canopy at the main entrance.
Granger crews cleared the interior of the 30-year-old building, removing all mechanical, electrical and architectural materials to return the building back to a core and shell configuration.
The first floor contains a new main lobby/reception area and waiting room, one radiology/X-ray room, two future radiology rooms to be built out at a later date, four blood draw rooms and a lab processing room, 12 exam rooms and one alcohol screening room. The second and third floors consist of 28 exam rooms and two large team work rooms each, with the third floor specifically serving pediatric patients.
Other work on the $6 million project included staining the brick façade to reflect Spectrum Health branding, installing all new exterior glass, new sidewalks with snowmelt systems, a new brick patio and landscaping, all new MEP systems, a new roof and new asphalt for the parking lot. The newly constructed canopy and vestibule entrance includes a decorative metal panel ceiling with a wood grained finish.
“The 426 Michigan project is part of the continued expansion of the healthcare corridor along Michigan Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids, and we are proud to have played a role in that,” said Jon Upton, project director and healthcare market segment leader at Granger Construction. “This newly remodeled facility will offer greater access to health care and allow Spectrum Health to further advance their goal of creating healthier communities in West Michigan.”
Besides Pediatric Medicine, the newly remodeled building will also house Spectrum Health’s Internal Medicine, Quick Care, Laboratory Services, Occupational and Employee Health Services and Radiology Services. Spectrum Health plans to reopen the facility to the public on June 5.
