After two years, $77 million, 200,000 man hours, 1,085 tons of steel, 9,176 sheets of dry wall and 1,200 gallons of paint, DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital is set to open the doors of its new Emergency Department.
The public is invited to attend a Community Open House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1. The first 200 families to attend will receive a special gift. Children are encouraged to join their parents and bring along their favorite toy or stuffed animal, as among the many activities taking place, the Radio Disney Junior Doc McStuffins Toy Clinic will be on hand giving check-ups. Free health screenings will also be offered.
As the largest construction project in northwest Detroit in more than a decade, the 59,000 square-foot space is more than double the size of the old ED. It features large, hard-walled, private treatment rooms, trauma rooms with advanced lifesaving equipment, a confidential Psychiatric Crisis Center and special treatment areas for geriatric and pediatric patients.
"This is an exciting time for our beloved community in northwest Detroit, who this hospital has served for more than 100 years," said Sinai-Grace President Reginald Eadie, M.D. "With this new Emergency Department, our patients will have a more comfortable, aesthetically-pleasing facility with state-of-the art equipment and the privacy they so deserve when receiving care from our incredible physicians and staff."
Additional construction is underway at Sinai-Grace, with a new intensive care unit, radiology department and main hospital lobby expected to be completed in 2015.
