ANN ARBOR – Michigan Medicine announced on Monday morning that its new hospital currently under construction will be named The Pavilion at University of Michigan Health.

After a pause in construction in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, work on the project has resumed. The new facility for adults inpatients is scheduled to open in the fall of 2025.

“The Pavilion at University of Michigan Health will offer the excellence in complex care that U-M patients are used to in a comforting facility that incorporates the latest innovations in health care delivery,” executive vice president of medical affairs for U-M, CEO of Michigan Medicine and dean of the Medical School, Marschall S. Runge, said in a release.

The 12-story hospital will feature 264 patient rooms that can convert to intensive care and advanced imaging rooms as well as 20 operating rooms for high-profile cardiovascular, neurological and thoracic cases.

“We’re excited to begin calling the new facility The Pavilion,” president of the University of Michigan Health System David Miller said in a release. “When it opens, our patients will see the word ‘Pavilion’ to indicate the location of their procedures on digital maps, signage and other wayfinding tools across the Michigan Medicine medical campus.”

All patient rooms in the Pavilion will be private and will have space for family members to be involved with their loved one’s care and recovery. Some patients from semi-private rooms at University Hospital may be transferred to the pavilion to help increase private rooms at the main hospital.

The first Pavilion Hospital opened as part of an extension to the original University Hospital in 1876, said Runge.
