University of Michigan Hospital Builds Sustainable Energy System

The University of Michigan’s new hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, will include resilient and sustainable power. 

Eaton, a power management company, signed a new contract to help design and construct the essential electrical system for the hospital, named the D. Dan and Betty Kahn Health Care Pavilion at the University of Michigan Health.

The new 264-bed adult inpatient facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2025. According to the university, the 12-story, 690,000 square-foot facility is also on track to receive a LEED Platinum certification for sustainable healthcare design and includes flexible energy systems that could transition to renewable energy sources.

The project includes advanced power distribution equipment and back-up power protection solutions such as an Eaton-engineered utility substation.

“Essential electrical systems are the heartbeat of any healthcare operation,” said Justin Carron, healthcare segment director at Eaton, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to help University of Michigan Health meet its evolving healthcare needs with an approach that prioritizes electrical resilience and a low-carbon future – so the university can continue to focus on providing what matters most: quality patient care.”
