Michigan Medicine announced today plans to build a new adult hospital that will increase patient access and transform medical and surgical care at the academic medical center of the University of Michigan.

Today, U-M’s Board of Regents unanimously approved the five-year project, with a projected cost of $920 million. This vote follows two previous Board of Regents decisions in 2018 to explore the feasibility of the project.

The new 690,000 gross-square-foot hospital will provide more access to care for adult patients at Michigan Medicine, where current hospital facilities often operate at more than 90% capacity.
