DETROIT, Mich. — After two years, $77 million, 200,000 man hours, 1,085 tons of steel, 9,176 sheets of drywall and 1,200 gallons of paint, DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital opened the doors of its new emergency department.
As the largest construction project in northwest Detroit in more than a decade, the 59,000-square-foot space is more than double the size of the old ED. It features large, hard-walled, private treatment rooms, trauma rooms with advanced lifesaving equipment, a confidential psychiatric crisis center and special treatment areas for geriatric and pediatric patients.
“This is an exciting time for our beloved community in northwest Detroit, who this hospital has served for more than 100 years,” said Sinai-Grace President Reginald Eadie, M.D. “With this new emergency department, our patients will have a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing facility with state-of-the art equipment and the privacy they so deserve when receiving care from our incredible physicians and staff.”
Additional construction is underway at Sinai-Grace, with a new intensive care unit, radiology department and main hospital lobby expected to be completed in 2015.
