DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan, Specialty Center

Detroit, MI | 2012

The Children's Hospital of Michigan Specialty Center-Detroit expands and consolidates outpatient services in a flexible facility that emphasizes primary and preventative care. By facilitating access to services, including labs, x-ray and immunization facilities, clinics, and medical offices, the Center fosters a culture of wellness. Its emphasis on family-focused care includes spaces that accommodate multiple family members. A general pediatric clinic, specialty clinics, and outpatient dialysis and infusion center occupy three floors while a fourth houses physicians’ office suites. Physical and occupational therapy on the lower level includes a gym with a rock-climbing wall. Built on a previously developed site, the Center frees space for future higher-acuity medical program expansion in the main hospital. The Center complements the existing campus and will set the pace for sustainable design. Shepley Bulfinch is the design architect in association with Integrated Design Solutions of Detroit.

The Specialty Center is the first LEED-certified building on the DMC campus.
