According to the Lansing State Journal, officials with McLaren Greater Lansing and Michigan State University have officially broken ground on a new, $450 million hospital.

The project, planned to open to patients by early 2022, will be the largest capital investment in McLaren's history.

According to Greg Lane, chief administrative officer, "when it's all said and done, we will invest over $500 million on this site, for the replacement hospital, a wonderful modern medical services building, cancer center, research programs and a number of other things in the coming years."

McLaren's new campus adjacent to MSU, with a 240-bed hospital as its centerpiece, will mean the consolidation of McLaren's two south Lansing sites.  Please click on the above link for more information.
