Open for business: New building to house doc offices, urgent care, and more

sootoday.com

SAULT STE. MARIE, MI - It took less than a year to construct and over the next month will be a hub of medical activity when services at the War Memorial Medical Office Building begin in earnest.

On Friday, officials including Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm cut the ribbon, giving the facility its official grand opening.

Populating the building with physician practices and community medical services has already begun.

In August, Sault Women’s Healthcare and Sault Pediatrics took up residency on the building’s first floor.

The WMH dialysis unit relocation is also in process, occupying a portion of the second floor.

Marla Bunker, vice-president of clinic services, said dialysis patients may notice several changes, including individual treatment bays and an isolation room, as required by state law for patients who have compromised immunity.

In September, the Community Care Clinic will begin seeing patients in the other half of the first floor.

By the end of September, it is expected that Dr. Richard Ganzhorn and Dr. Patrick Galey will relocate their orthopedic practice to the fourth floor.

That same floor will have office space for Dr. Paula Rechner and Dr. James Adair of advanced surgical care.

Finishing out the fourth floor will be urologist Dr. Jonathan Hakim, as well as the x-ray suite that will serve the building.

WMH has some additional space on the first floor.

Bunker said a number of options are being reviewed, including the possibility of retail space.

The third floor space will be leased by building owner Moyle Construction.

Outside the structure are two parking options for patients.

A small surface lot adjoins the building to the north and the city parking garage is located directly to the south.

The WMMOB has main entrance doors on both the north and south sides of the building, allowing patients easy access to both options.

Patients utilizing the garage can bring their ticket for validation and enjoy free parking.

The WMMOB is 40,000 square feet in total space and was completed at a cost of $9.6 million.

War Memorial Hospital expands

Upper Peninsula developer built the new building for hospital

SAULT STE. MARIE, MI -- The new War Memorial Medical Office Building cost $9.6 million to build.

But the expansion wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for a developer who has a positive outlook for the community.

War Memorial Hospital has been a staple in the Sault Sainte Marie community for more than 100 years. It's the only hospital in Chippewa County, and now, it's expanding to accommodate the growing needs.

"We want to make sure we provide world class service and great customer satisfaction," said War Memorial President/CEO David Jahn.

This is the new War Memorial Medical Office Building. The plans to build it have been in works for years, but the funding has just not been there. Now it's built, it'll be the home to several different hospital wings, including an urgent care center, Sault Women's Healthcare, Sault Pediatrics, an orthopedic practice, x-ray suite, and an expanded kidney dialysis center.

“Now we're going to have nine chairs, so we should be able to take care of everybody's needs by seven pm instead of 11 pm," said Jahn.

"Moyle Development out of Houghton, Michigan built the building. The hospital signed a 20 year lease with the company with an option to buy the building after seven years. Without Moyle's help, Jahn says this may have been put on the backburner for the next few years, or may have not even been possible.

Tom Moyle is the owner of Moyle Development. I gave him a call and he said he decided to move forward with the project because he feels Sault Ste. Marie is a growing, progressive area and as a support of the Upper Peninsula, this is a positive step for the community.

“By him coming in and being the developer of the project, we were able to do it now, and when you can bring new physicians in, that's going to increase revenue, increase the number of jobs in our community, and keep more care local," said Jahn.

The hospital has leased three of the four floors in the new building. Jahn says doing this will help the hospital grow and allow patients to stay close to home.

The new building is just one of the expansions the hospital has made in the past few years.

Three years ago, War Memorial built a new rehab facility and expanded the radiology department.

Friday night at 5, Governor Granholm will be at the hospital for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Governor Jennifer Granholm joined community leaders and hospital staff to celebrate a new medical office building for War Memorial Hospital.

The new $9.6-million building was constructed by Moyle Real Estate and Development with the help of a $1-million state tax credit.

The new building will help accommodate the growing medical industry and keep the services closer to the hospital.

Currently, some of the services are spread out in different buildings around town.

Sault Women's Healthcare and Sault Pediatrics have already moved into the building.

The Community Care Clinic, orthopedic practice, urologist, surgeons and an expanded dialysis unit will make their moves within the coming months.

The hospital is leasing three of the four floors in the building.

The WMMOB has main entrance doors on both the north and south sides of the building, allowing patients easy access to both options. Patients utilizing the garage can bring their ticket for validation and enjoy free parking.

The project is expected to create 36 new jobs and generate $8.7 million in new investment.

“This transformational project in Sault Ste. Marie was a real team effort and shows what public-private partnerships can accomplish,” Granholm said. “Not only will this project create new jobs today, it will serve as a magnet to attract additional investment and jobs to the community tomorrow.”

Moyle Real Estate and Development worked with the city of Sault Ste. Marie and the Chippewa County-owned War Memorial Hospital to plan and construct the new 40,000 square-foot, four-story, LEED-certified building at a cost of $9.6 million.

Based on a Michigan Economic Development Corporation recommendation, the state approved a brownfield redevelopment Michigan Business Tax (MBT) credit valued at $1 million to support the project last August. The city of Sault Ste. Marie is covering demolition costs for the project through local incentives. Community leaders expect the new medical office building to be the catalyst for a second medical building nearby that also will create new job opportunities in the city’s downtown area.
