Building the Future of Health Care

Project Update -Summer 2020

Over the past several months, nearly every facet of our lives has been impacted by COVID-19. Much has changed at our hospital to keep our patients, staff, and the community safe. Thankfully,  our construction project continues, with only a brief pause in work.


Everything remains on schedule with the new Offield Family Pavilion opening in the spring of 2021—less than one year from now!

Many features of the new wing will enhance our ability to combat pandemics like COVID-19, such as moving to all private patient rooms. In fact, some technological advances planned for the new wing were accelerated to help manage the health crisis. 

The PROJECT page shows construction progress to date for the new wing. As you’ll see, the interior is beginning to take shape, while the exterior is getting closer to completion.

We are grateful for your support of this project, and as we’ve experienced recently, the impact of your giving will always be greater than we know.

We're Building the Future of Health Care for You

McLaren Northern Michigan provides excellent health care to thousands of people, but we need a new facility to continue our work at the highest level. We serve 22 counties and a population of more than 430,000 residents. We offer a full range of services representing nearly every medical and surgical specialty. We need contemporary, up-to-date facilities, with modern physical spaces and technology. The future of our northern Michigan community depends on it. 


The Building the Future of Health Care Project will make McLaren Northern Michigan the best place:

  • for physicians to practice

  • for employees to work

  • and most importantly, for patients to receive care

The expansion and renovation project will generate more than 170,000 square feet of additional space and encompasses four key components:

  • New private patient rooms – creating 92 private inpatient rooms.

  • Renovation of existing inpatient rooms. Shared inpatient rooms will be refreshed and converted to predominantly private rooms.

  • Expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU), growing from 18 to 24 private ICU beds; a new Cardiovascular Unit (CVU), creating 34 private CVU rooms; and 12 observation beds designed for short-stay patients needing less than 24 hours of clinical observation.

  • Integrated Surgical Program which includes a new suite of 10 Operating Rooms along with a complete renovation & reconfiguration of surgical services.
