DETROIT 1967: The 50th Anniversary of the Riots Detroit At Crossroads, Reflections, Recovery

Groundbreaking At Sinai Grace Hospital

DETROIT (WWJ) The Detroit Medical Center held a groundbreaking ceremony outside Sinai Grace Hospital on Friday, formally beginning work on a planned expansion project for the hospital.

The $77 million project, which features plans for a new emergency department, intensive care units and lobby, is expected to be completed in early 2015.

Sinai Grace Hospital President Reginald Eadie said that although they can handle the load of being one of the busiest emergency rooms in the nations, it never hurts to have more space.

“At times, we need more room, we need to expand. So this is it, this is a brighter day,” said Eadie. The planned expansion is expected to add a total of 45,000 square feet to the hospital.

Eadie added that the renovations are a welcoming sign for those residing in Northwest Detroit.

“We have some health disparities in the community that need to be addressed more strongly and this is the beginning of us getting our arms around the problems that exist.”

The announcement is just the latest in improvements that have taken place at the DMC. Just earlier this year, its parent company, Vanguard Health Systems, approved the construction of a new heart hospital in the Detroit Medical Center and an expansion at Receiving Hospital.
