New Expansion Coming to Ingham County Medical Care Facility

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - It's a busy sight at the Ingham County Medical Care Facility, on Dobie Road, as the construction of a new 61,000 square foot addition is well under way.

"So the expansion will benefit the facility by allowing the capabilities to provide more acute care services to the community," Strategy, Communications and Business Development Director Kristen Campbell said.

The expansion will offer short-term rehabilitation and complex care services.

"We will have state-of-the-art capabilities to treat the higher acuity patients and give them a better experience, so they can get out of the hospital faster and onto recovery and back to home," said Assessment Director Michelle Darnold.

Costing an estimated of $20 million, the addition will include 48 private sleeping and bathing suites, a community room, spa, therapy gym, an outpatient clinic and a 24-hour gym that will be open to the public.

It will even include a new bistro.

"Patients, patients loved ones and staff will be able to experience the taste of Dobie in a whole new way," Director of Dining Services Desiree Morris said. "With the capabilities to offer on-dining cooking, it will feel more like a restaurant than a facility."

It has taken two years of planning the expansion and the construction for it began in early May. It still has another year of work before it is completed and ready to be used.

"We are looking forward to the new facility opening and we will have a lot more space and provide the best care to our patients," Darnold said.

The new expansion of the Ingham County Medical Care Facility is set to open summer 2018.
