In response to increasing consumer demand, in fast growing Macomb County, Michigan, Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center launched the first phase of an aggressive Facility Re-Development Master Plan with a 145,000 SF, four level Surgery Center. The $38 million dollar facility features eight state-of-the-art operating suites, complete with the latest robotic technology. Focusing primarily on the Hospital’s rapidly expanding elective surgery programs, the center emphasizes patient and family comfort and amenities as well as surgical support staff spaces and services designed to increase efficiency and staff satisfaction. Collaborative value engineering efforts during the preconstruction phase of this project between Roncelli, Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center and the design team resulted in savings of over 7.5% of projected costs. The new center opened for business ahead of time and well within budget.
