MSU Health Care and McLaren expand partnership 

MSU Health Care is expanding their partnership with McLaren Greater Lansing to increase access to patients seeking care and healing in mid-Michigan. Over the next few weeks, services will open at the new McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital campus, inside the MSU Health Park.  

This partnership includes the creation of hospital-based clinics for breast imaging, cancer care, and mental health for seniors. The Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Greater Lansing will see its first patients on Monday, February 28, 2022. MSU Health Care Women’s Imaging Center will become the Breast Imaging Center at the same time and will be located on the floor above Karmanos Cancer Institute. The new McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital will open to patients March 6, 2022. 

“This partnership brings together our commitment to provide continuous improvement and quality care,” said Kirk Ray, President and CEO, McLaren Greater Lansing.  

McLaren Greater Lansing and MSU Health Care share a rich history of collaborating to care for the surrounding communities at the clinical level. MSU Health Care will provide medical oncology, imaging services, and psychiatry care for seniors alongside the gynecologic oncology, vascular surgery, urology, and. podiatry services we have historically provided.

“This project is a result of many years of collaboration,” said Seth Ciabotti, CEO of MSU Health Care. “Together, MSU Health Care and McLaren will combine the latest technology and equipment with the clinical expertise of talented providers, expand teaching programs to train future physicians and connect our community to additional clinical trials. We will provide quicker and more accurate diagnosis, shorter wait times, and research, to meet the growing need in our community.”  

MSU Health Care will also be providing physicians and psychiatry expertise in the Geropsychiatric Evaluation and Management Service unit. This will allow the unit to care for more patients afflicted with memory disorders and conditions, enhance the specialized care provided, and improve teaching and learning opportunities to train the next generation of physicians focused on addressing the mental health crisis. 

Back in December, MSU Health Care and McLaren Greater Lansing broke ground on the Medical Services building that will be located on the McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital campus. The center includes a full suite of imaging capabilities featuring all-new equipment in the more than 20,000-square-foot space. All four innovative wide-bore MRI systems will have new Siemens technology to allow for faster scanning times. Additional services include a new digital PET/CT scanner and CT scanners offering faster scanning times and lower doses of isotope. This center is focused on patient comfort and convenience including on-site parking and evening and weekend hours. The Medical Services Building is slated to open in Summer 2023. 

This partnership will also include initiatives in collaboration with MSU to advance the university’s academic, research, and clinical care missions.
