Meeting Notes

Workplan updates:


a) Schedule is on track.






a) Matthew Cox has requested the planning team provide priorities in reference to in flight "just do it" projects such as: Residency Clinics, Parking, Ambulatory Building, Ambulatory Surgery

Center, Hotel,etc.


b) Darryl emphasized the importance of enabling medical center projects, parking and Big Rapids clinic.


c) Gwen emphasized that "in-flight" projects must be well aligned with the master plan, as these are all critical to the organization's success. Butterworth is on diversion too often, and are concerned about capacity next flu season. Need to pioritize Meijer Heart 8th floor. Need space for the doctors. All of the hospitals all need to be able to generate revenue while changes occur.


d) Planning team is to properly evaluate right sizing of buildings to avoid unnecessary over-build and extraneous costs.


e) Financing is not an issue, however, there is concern regarding capacity of construction industry trades within the regional market to support build out of the master plan in addition to internal

capacity within the organization to manage multiple projects simultanously.




Medical Center


a) Need to have private beds in medical center because this is a major component of being a patient centric organization and delivering a great experience.


b) There is concern of surgeons pushing back on Ambulatory Surgery Center and inpatient surgery split. Need to further engage with the physicians if separate block time is expected.


c) There is concern about location and cost of NICU if West building is demolished. Planning team will provide a slide for talking points on this subject.


d) There is an opportunity for Urgent Care to offload the Emergency Department. Spectrum Health has a great new model for Urgent Care that is ready to be deployed. Further analysis will

make recommedations regarding locations. Navigant will provide a few models to consider for discussion.


e) Planning team is to evaluate proper right sizing of the Medical Education and Precision Medicine Building.


f) Operational issues regarding vehicular and pedestrian movement in addition to Ramp 6 expansion need to be studied. Alan will engage Kim Way, Nicolas Bracco and others within the

organization to review these prior to the community engagement event.


g) Master plan to include Real Estate Procurement requirements to make sure the Medical Center grows appropriately.
