Patient-Centered Flow and Access are Key In New Health Care Campus

As our new state-of-the-art hospital continues to move closer to opening, the future of care at McLaren Greater Lansing is taking shape in the cutting-edge Medical Services Building (MSB) and Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Greater Lansing. We are now getting our first look at the updated plans for the combined health care campus.

The Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Greater Lansing team of staff, providers, and leaders have worked together over the last year to create a best-in-class cancer center. Key design elements being planned are multi-disciplinary clinical “pods” that include large collaboration and consultation rooms, a flexible infusion space offering patients the choice of community or privacy, space to grow to two linear accelerator vaults, a specialty urgent care center, and multi-use rooms for services like massage therapy, support groups, exercise, and community events. 

The MSB will be home to many ambulatory care services along with cardiovascular and endoscopy along with a women’s resource center that will serve as a single access point for mammography, ultrasound, and bone density testing.

“We’ve focused on patient-centric flow within every aspect of the campus,” said Austin Holcomb, McLaren Greater Lansing director of facilities. “Our vision is to bring care to the patient rather than having to move them, which fits perfectly with McLaren’s multidisciplinary approach to care.” Our new health care campus has evolved thanks to our physicians, nurses, caregivers, and staff helping to shape a space that will redesign health care for generations to come.
