Regional and community leaders joined DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital officials at a March 1 ceremonial groundbreaking for the construction of new private orthopedic/neurosurgery rooms at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital in Commerce Township.
The DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital private room renovation, funded by Vanguard Health Systems of Nashville, is designed to add a private bed floor in the space vacated when the new Sinai Guild Medical Office Building was occupied in 2010. The new floor will contain 21 new private beds and allow Huron Valley-Sinai to decompress another 21 semi-private rooms to privates. The project includes all incremental equipment and furnishings to support the 21 beds and will total around $7 million in costs once completed.
“Twenty-five years ago a few citizens with a vision created DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital,” said Lynn Torossian, DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital’s president. “Today we embark on another construction project aimed at providing this community with the best possible care while allowing us to showcase our outstanding orthopedic and neurosurgery services. These new rooms have been specifically designed to incorporate pre- and post-surgical care needs for our patients including placing physical therapy directly on the unit. We are all very excited about the project.”
Construction is anticipated to be completed for the new rooms in late 2011.
