Trinity Health announced Tuesday that it plans to build a $238 million hospital in Brighton, Michigan, a suburb outside Detroit.
The new 56-bed hospital will be built on Trinity’s existing medical campus in Brighton, which will expand the available services to include both medical and surgical care.
The new hospital will replace Trinity’s existing 66-bed hospital in Howell, which was built in 1958.
The new location will bring Trinity’s hospital footprint more southeast, closer to Detroit than its existing facility, putting it closer to other hospital operators, including Ascension.
The hospital is set to break ground early next year and will take three years to build. It will be a four-story, 174,000-square-foot hospital when it’s completed.
The new build comes at a time when hospitals are facing difficult operating conditions due to pricier labor from continued staffing shortages.
Trinity Health reported a $206 million operating loss for the fiscal year ended June 30 as contract labor more than doubled from the prior-year period.
Trinity, among the largest nonprofit health systems in the country, operates nearly 90 hospitals and other care locations in 26 states.
