Plante Moran Cresa led the planning and design team in bringing the hospital’s concepts to life and improving the flow and floor plan.

The challenge

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.

The solution

After determining that a new addition and renovation were necessary, Mercy Hospital Cadillac engaged Plante Moran Cresa (PMC) to act as owner’s representative for its $14 million addition and renovation project.  

PMC led the planning and design team in bringing the hospital’s concepts to life and improving the flow and floor plan. With PMC’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.

The benefit

Throughout the renovation and construction, PMC 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.
