Gresham, Smith and Partners has been chosen as the architect of the new Marquette General Hospital facility in Michigan.
“We are excited to have Gresham, Smith and Partners on board as we begin this vital project for the Marquette community,” said Ed Banos, CEO of Marquette General Hospital. “Working with GS&P provides us an opportunity to custom design and build a hospital that not only fits our needs, but will help us deliver healthcare in the most innovative and effective ways possible. We look forward to beginning the design process in the weeks to come.”
GS&P has dedicated a team of senior design leaders to this project, as well as healthcare planners, researchers and a healthcare strategist who specialize in strategically planning for the future operations and clinical goals of a hospital.
“For more than 45 years, Gresham, Smith and Partners has designed quality healthcare buildings that enhance patient experience, staff satisfaction and overall delivery of care,” said Greg Gore, principal of GS&P. “We are delighted to partner with the Marquette General team and Duke LifePoint Healthcare to create a hospital campus and medical office building uniquely suited to meet the needs of the Upper Peninsula.”
Through its specialized expertise in creating cost-effective healthcare solutions with environmentally sensitive design, GS&P also will work with engineers to infuse energy-saving technologies into the design for Marquette General Hospital.
“This is an exciting time for Marquette General, our staff, patients and communities,” said Judy Watson-Olson, chair of the Marquette General Board of Trustees. “Through our partnership with Duke LifePoint, we have the opportunity to provide the Upper Peninsula with a new state-of-the-art hospital that offers a comprehensive array of quality healthcare services. We look forward to working with Gresham, Smith and Partners to design a hospital that meets Marquette’s needs now and into the future.”
A site for the new Marquette General Hospital campus is expected to be chosen this spring. Once this is complete, a design and construction schedule will be determined, and contractors will be selected.
