Michigan Healthcare Facility Design, Construction, and Architecture


Michigan healthcare construction is booming as medical and healthcare facility projects are popping up all over the Great Lakes state. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) reports that existing businesses are expanding their operations and thriving in a business-friendly environment that attracts new businesses daily to the Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Sterling Heights, Lansing, and Ann Arbor areas. According to a report published by the Michigan Health and Hospital Association, the $65 billion per year economic impact of Michigan’s health care industry is greater than that of any other industry in the state. The report states ‘Approximately 929,400 jobs, or 17% of all Michigan workers, are directly or indirectly related to, or induced by, the health care industry.’

Health care jobs contribute $58 billion in wages and benefits to the state’s economy. In certain areas of the state, the growing economy due to the healthcare industry potential can be seen clearly. In Grand Rapids, for instance, just 35 miles from Lake Michigan, Spectrum Health was named among the top five large health systems for system-wide clinical and administrative performance, making it an attractive employer for a wide range of health care workers in Western Michigan.

Hospitals are responsible for hundreds of thousands of jobs for Michigan residents, from Detroit to Ann Arbor, the largest amount of jobs in any sector. In March 2018 Crain’s Detroit Business reported that health care businesses account for a major portion of Michigan’s economy, estimated to be about $490.2 billion in 2016, according to U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis figures. A Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA) Economic Impact Report notes that the healthcare industry in the state provided more than 602,000 direct jobs in 2017, illustrating the undeniably significant role the industry plays in the economic welfare of Michigan’s economy.

MHA CEO Brian Peters stated, ‘In addition to protecting Michiganders’ health and wellbeing, hospitals and health systems provide jobs representing nearly 40 percent of health care’s economic activity in Michigan, making them essential to the state’s financial welfare’.
