MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Marquette General Hospital plans to spend $300 million over the next 10 years to renovate and expand its Upper Peninsula facilities.
WLUC-TV reports ( ) the hospital announced the plans Monday at the Marquette City Commission meeting, and some improvements are already taking place. A new medical office building, a unified cancer center and a patient tower renovation are in the works.
Hospital CEO Gary Muller says focus groups will be used to determine what patients want to see in the hospital's upgrades.
The plans come after Marquette General Hospital was sold last year to a joint venture involving Duke University Health System.
Duke LifePoint Healthcare is a joint venture between the health system at North Carolina's Duke University and Brentwood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Hospitals Inc.
