A new adult inpatient facility has finally been approved after over a year of assessments for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The new hospital will consist of 12 stories and 690,000 square feet and is to be built on the main medical campus. So far the plans call for 110 beds to be moved there from the University Hospital and to add 154 new beds. An additional 23 suites will also be added for surgical and interventional radiology procedures.

All of the rooms will be able to be converted into intensive care and specialty care rooms and more. The new hospital will be the most advanced, state-of-the-art facility in the state of Michigan. It will also help with the capacity issues that University Hospital is dealing with now, which is right around 90%.

This hospital should create around 1,600 new jobs for the people of Michigan and that doesn't even include physicians. Ground will be broken coming up in October and the new facility should be open by the fall of 2024.
