The future 99,000-square-foot patient tower at MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena, scheduled to open in April 2022, is the largest expansion of its kind in the community. The $63.5 million expansion and renovation project feature a three-story patient tower. The tower will house 60 new private patient rooms, including eight intensive care unit beds, eight labor and delivery rooms, and 44 medical/surgical/telemetry beds. The new tower will also include 19 prep and recovery rooms, flex rooms, as well as five new operating rooms. Once complete, many areas in the existing Medical Center will be renovated.

Those who would like more information on the patient tower project or would like to support the MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena patient tower project, may contact Diamond at (989) 356-7738 or ann.diamond@midmichigan.org or visit www.midmichigan.org/alpenatower.
