Gift of Life MichiganSurgical Center Addition
Client Gift of Life Michigan
Location Ann Arbor, MI
Size (sq. ft) 40,786
Completion Date April 2016
This facility connects two existing buildings into one 6.5-acre campus, and increases the efficiency of donations, frees up operating room space at hospitals across Michigan, and better serves donor families by shortening the process. In 2013, Gift of Life facilitated 283 organ donors, resulting in more than 900 lives saved.
The epicenter of the project is a surgical center with four suites that is used to conduct organ and tissue recoveries. Other features of the expansion include a new learning center with seating for more than 200 people, a memorial to organ and tissue donors, and a green roof.
