MyMichigan Medical Center Clare has recently chosen Hord Coplan Macht as the designer and architect for the expansion and revitalization of its existing facility. This project, estimated to cost around $52 million, is set to commence in 2025 pending necessary approvals.
Marita Hattem-Schiffman, the president of MyMichigan Medical Centers in Clare, Alma, and Mount Pleasant, emphasized the significance of this project for the community. “Selecting the right firm to partner with and provide just what we envision for our community and the future of healthcare was critical,” she said.
Hord Coplan Macht’s track record includes notable healthcare projects such as MyMichigan’s Heart and Vascular Center in Midland, the patient tower at MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena, and the soon-to-open James T. and Elsa U. Pardee Cancer Wellness Center in Midland.
Jim Albert, the principal and healthcare market sector leader at Hord Coplan Macht, expressed excitement about working on this important project and continuing their successful collaboration with MyMichigan Health. “Maintaining a robust rural health network is critical, and HCM is excited to collaborate with the MyMichigan team to create innovative healthcare spaces that enhance patient care services and positively impact the community,” Albert said.
The expansion and revitalization of MyMichigan Medical Center Clare will be carried out in up to four phases, starting with the Emergency Department. The project’s detailed design work has already commenced and is expected to take approximately 12 months. Once the design is complete, approvals from both the Medical Center’s Board of Directors and the health system’s board will be obtained to secure project funding.
