MidMichigan Health to Renovate Former Sears Building at the Midland Mall
MidMichigan Health has purchased the former Sears Building, located in the Midland Mall complex on Joe Mann Boulevard. The building will be renovated into office space, as well as flexible co-working space, a large conference space for retreats or department meetings and hoteling offices for employees who work remotely or at another MidMichigan subsidiary.
When renovations are complete, the building will include space for about 250 employees, including several departments who were displaced in the flooding in Midland in 2020, such as the information technology, coding, billing and purchasing departments. Other departments with offices currently in the Towsley Building, located on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland, will also be moving to the new space in order for construction to begin on MidMichigan’s new Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“As MidMichigan Health continues to grow, we recognized the need for more offsite office space,” said Randall Sanborn, director of information technology, MidMichigan Health. “We’re thrilled to be able to expand into new, modern office space, to create flexible co-working space for employees traveling to Midland from another location and to join the community at the Midland Mall.”
Adding additional offsite office space will also create more patient parking on the campus of the Medical Center in Midland. Building renovations for the former Sears Building are expected to begin in fall 2021, and completed by spring 2022.
