Trinity Health Michigan has presented plans for a new hospital that will improve patient access at its current medical centre in Brighton. Plans also involve establishing an integrated campus of medical and surgical care.
The new hospital will be located in Livingston County, which is a suburb of Detroit. The $238.2 million project will take three years to complete. The four storey, 174,000 square foot hospital will have eight licensed operating rooms. In addition, there are 18 short stay beds, and 56 acuity adapted beds. The current medical centre building will also get some updates.
The start of construction is anticipated for early 2023. Short-stay units are designed for patients who only need temporary hospitalization. Acuity adaptable rooms allow patients to stay in one central room for the duration of their stay. This is opposed to being moved to various units.

Further, the relocation of inpatient and outpatient services from the ageing Trinity Health Livingston hospital in Howell to the Trinity Health Medical Center-Brighton site is the result of a multi-year endeavour. Completion of the hospital is set for 2025.
Trinity Health’s Michigan medical campus to bring together healthcare professionals and services
The new hospital will bring together healthcare professionals and services to give Livingston County and neighbouring areas a continuum of care in one place. Primary care, general medicine, gynaecological surgery, urology, and cardiology are among the services offered at the hospital.
Furthermore, intensive cardiac rehab, orthopaedics, minimally invasive general surgery, bariatric surgery, and oncology are among the medical specialities that the new hospital will provide.
Trinity Health Michigan claims it is committed to making sure the area remains a thriving part of the Howell community. However, Trinity Health Livingston hospital’s future plans have not yet been made.
One of the biggest employers in the state is Trinity Health Michigan. The provider’s system consists of nine hospitals in Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Grand Haven, Grand Rapids, Howell, Livonia, Muskegon, Pontiac, and Shelby. Additionally, there are more than 24,000 full-time employees servicing 29 counties.
