Plante Moran Realpoint helps hospital complete $14 million addition and renovation project under budget
Mercy Hospital Cadillac, a division of Trinity Health in Cadillac, Michigan, staffs 97 acute-care beds with 65 active physicians. Mercy Hospital Cadillac has on-staff specialists in urology, general and orthopedic surgery, podiatry, and cardiology.
When a new obstetric unit opened in 2001, patient traffic flow changed drastically. Mercy Hospital Cadillac realized that space renovation was demanded.
After determining that a new addition and renovation were necessary, Mercy Hospital Cadillac engaged Plante Moran Realpoint (PMR), formerly Plante Moran Cresa, to act as owner’s representative for its $14 million addition and renovation project.
PMR led the planning and design team in bringing the hospital’s concepts to life and improving the flow and floor plan. With PMR's oversight, surgery preparation, hold, and discharge were relocated to the first floor and the central sterile department was relocated to be adjacent to the operating rooms (OR). Soon six new ORs were built, featuring boom technology and two endoscopy rooms.
Throughout the renovation and construction, PMR's leveraged the wide range of aptitudes it has gained from extensive experience in the hospital and healthcare facilities environment. The 17,000-square-foot addition and 21,000-square-foot renovation were completed successfully and under budget.
