New hospital’s design revealed

MARQUETTE — The look of an upcoming Upper Peninsula hospital has been revealed.

UP Health System – Marquette released an architectural rendering Thursday of the design for the future 265–bed hospital and medical complex that will be located at the Roundhouse property on Baraga Avenue. The Marquette City Commission approved the land purchase agreement for that property on August 3rd.

Officials plan to break ground on the new facility in May of 2016. The next step toward groundbreaking is the approval of the hospital’s Certificate of Need, which is expected to occur in October. Approval of construction plans and development and approval of a Brownfield Work Plan and Due Care Plan will happen after that.

The new hospital is expected to be up and running in the fall of 2018. Click here for a link to construction updates and developments.
