The Hauenstein Center at Saint Mary’s
260 Jefferson Ave SE Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Designed by Trinity Design of Farmington Hills, the Hauenstein Neuroscience Center houses approximately 90,000 square feet of space to accommodate 20 primary care physicians, several specialists, and a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms to handle ear, nose and throat surgeries, hand surgeries, orthopedic procedures and other general surgeries.
The Hauenstein Center offers imaging (X-ray) services, a clinical laboratory, complementary health services, an urgent care center, a pharmacy, an outpatient surgery center, and additional support space.
The building was designed to maximize efficiency and convenience for the users, while minimizing environmental impact. The project received LEED Silver certification. According to project manager Mark Bradburn, “some of the ‘green’ features of building include a large clerestory to disperse natural light and underground storage tanks that will be used to collect rain runoff for later use on the lawn’s irrigation system.”
