MMED Clinical Pathology Relocation and Renovations

The goals of the project are to enhance the clinical laboratory functions necessary to meet present and future growth in test volumes, improve operational efficiency, and reduce the expense of having laboratories in multiple locations. Pathology laboratories currently located within University Hospital, University Hospital South, Medical Science Unit I, North Ingalls Building, and leased space will be relocated to NCRC Buildings 30, 35, 36 and 60. The Michigan Medical Genetics Laboratory of the Department of Pediatrics will also be relocated to NCRC. The relocation will also provide faculty offices and space for resident training, and laboratories will be designed to provide flexibility to meet future education, research, and technology requirements. After the NCRC construction work is complete, laboratories at University Hospital and University Hospital South will be renovated to allow for increased throughput and the expansion of capacity for automated sample processing. In total, approximately 186,000 gross square feet of space will be renovated at NCRC, University Hospital and University Hospital South.
