CSM Group, a Kalamazoo-based construction management firm, will manage the construction of a new ambulatory surgery center for Bronson Healthcare. The facility is being planned for an easily accessible location at the northeast corner of I-94 and 9th Street in Texas Township, Michigan.
This facility will serve patients who do not require hospitalization and for whom the expected duration of care is under 24 hours. By developing this ambulatory surgery center, about 5,400 orthopedic-related cases per year can be shifted from the hospital’s operating rooms.
“This is not just a win for CSM Group; this project will positively impact all patients across southwest Michigan,” said Jim Feltch, president and chief executive officer at CSM Group. “We are proud to have a part in bringing this important project to realization.”
The facility will have four operating rooms dedicated to surgical procedures in the areas of general orthopedics, total joint (hip and knee) replacement, and orthopedic spine, hand, and sports medicine.
“We are grateful to Bronson Healthcare for selecting us to be a part of their project team,” said John Kakoczki, project director at CSM Group. “The 37-year relationship between our two organizations is one built on trust and we look forward to working together once again.”
Pending requisite regulatory approvals, the project is expected to begin later this year and be completed by late 2021.
