Originally built in the 1930s, Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Sinai-Grace had renovated several times to improve its emergency department and ICU. Still, a major overhaul was needed to support the large patient volumes that this urban hospital in northwest Detroit handles.

... the massive renovation and high-tech advances that are coming will add world-class facilities to [Sinai-Grace's] reputation for outstanding patient care.

Former DMC President and CEO Michael Duggan

Accommodating the growth and adding new technology and enhanced security, SmithGroup’s 135,000-square-foot addition delivers a new, expanded ED; a 40-bed ICU; expanded clinical laboratory and radiology space; and a new, distinctive main entrance.

Designed for 125,000 visits per year, the new ED reduces patient length of stay through innovative operational efficiencies for registration, results waiting, and express care, and a separate patient discharge area streamlines throughput. State-of-the-art technology is integral to its 42 hard-walled patient exam rooms, 94 treatment areas, and new trauma rooms. On the second floor of the addition, two 20-bed ICU units in a racetrack configuration bring natural light into the patient rooms while providing unit support services at the optimal location within the central core.
