Phase two of a three-year construction project at MidMichigan Health in Midland has begun, with the final demolition of the former Sugnet Building, also known as the original Midland Hospital. This phase involves construction of the new Heart and Vascular Center, slated to open in the fall of 2020. The more than 170,000 square foot center will consolidate all of Midland’s heart and vascular physician offices and specialty clinics. It will also house cardiac rehabilitation services and provide streamlined access to cardiovascular testing, as well as interventional and surgical heart and vascular services.

Phase one of the MidMichigan Health construction project wrapped up in June with the opening of the new Orchard Building, which houses imaging and laboratory services, an anticoagulation clinic, cardiovascular testing, the clinical research office as well as physician offices.

Mid Michigan Health said the $62.8 million two-part project has brought more than 125 jobs to the region, with more expected when the Heart and Vascular Center opens.
