As construction continues on the Plaza Building and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, the glass walkway that will connect to the Sparrow Professional Building is now framed and enclosed. Construction on the circular drive off of Michigan Avenue is also underway. We thank all of our Patients, Caregivers, Visitors and Guests for your patience during this time when access to the Professional Building Parking ramp is periodically re-routed to accommodate the work. As weather permits, more detailed work on the W3 Plaza, the central courtyard, will get underway.
As of the end of July, the glass front has been gradually going into place on the face of the new Plaza Building, home to the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, and construction has started on the pedestrian bridge that will connect the Plaza to the Sparrow Professional Building. Construction started just over one year ago. Track the progress through The Christman Company’s webcam, and watch a timelapse from the very beginning!
With the framework set, the shape of the new Plaza Building and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center can be visualized. Each day brings great progress!
The new Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, a keystone in Sparrow’s commitment to caring for our community, hit another milestone with the placement of the signature beam, reflecting the collaboration between Caregivers, Patients, Donors, and community members to transform healthcare for our region.
A group of special guests, donors, Physicians, Cancer Center Patients and Caregivers gathered recently to sign on to a piece of history.
After brief remarks from James and Susan Herman, attendees lined up to sign the beam or add a personal message.
The naming of the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center facility recognizes a combined $2.5- million philanthropic gift from James and Judith Herbert of Lansing, and James and Susan Herman of East Lansing. James Herman, M.D., is the Medical Director of the Sparrow Cancer Center.
Support from our region and our Caregivers is what allows us to transform health care, expanding and improving our services to bring you quality, compassionate care, in a healthy, healing environment.
This beam, filled with signatures from Caregivers, Patients, Donors, and community members, is a reflection of that collaboration and will be a permanent piece of the Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, opening early summer of 2017.
A check-in shows that final steps are near for the parking deck adjacent to the future Plaza Building and Herbert-Herman Cancer Center. This multi-level parking structure will offer approximately 600 new parking spaces, providing greater accessibility for Visitors and offering reserved parking for Cancer Center Patients.
As summer comes to an end, and fall ramps up the progress on the new Herbert-Herman Cancer Center and Plaza Building has made great strides. Check out these shots, taken approximately on month apart, to see just how much work has been done already.
