Yes, the new "official legal name" is BHSH System...which is purposefully terrible so no one gets attached to it.  I expect the new name to be announced in 6-12 months.  One of the presidents assures us that the name will not be Speaumont Health, lol.  We were never the sole owner of the name (trademark?) Spectrum Healths o i think it was always going to change at some point. I think it technically belongs to a Spectrum Health System in new england somewhere. 

Has there been any more movement on this?   Was reading about it last night and realized we haven’t heard much since it became official.  Is Beaumont going to be more integrated with Spectrum, or will they more or less operate as separate but affiliated systems?

I've seen it called BHSH System and BHSH Spectrum in a number of recent articles.

Within healthcare circles it's referred to as BHSH. I assume you'll see them operate as separate systems for a while with the biggest changes being the market penetration of Priority Health in SE Michigan.

I spoke to one of my former coworkers at Spectrum who's helping with the integration.  The gist I get is that the entity will pretty much be what was Spectrum in the end.   They were being pretty political in phrasing. I imagine there's plenty of Beaumont management trying to keep their positions in tact etc(as one would expect).   That's like what a $12billion-ish organization headquartered downtown?

Still very tight lipped about the name. I’ve heard October or December. No hints one way or another. 
 

internally, we have now three  care delivery divisions that operate separately, west Michigan, Lakeland and now Beaumont. They will integrate epic platforms but are geographically distant enough to have separate leadership. Because we’ll standardize on epic all of the workflows will be similar but their own leader ship will remain id imagine. 
 

love that steel. They better not do anything to those trees on the street.

I'm still bummed that this project was planned to be larger, but COVID and WFH really scaled it back.  Great infill nonetheless

IIRC, there was a certain amount of square footage tossed about. Then they bought the Brassworks building. So I don’t think it was necessarily scaled back, but the new building probably got smaller in some shape or form. But nothing had been released, so I don’t think you can really say it was scaled back… just different than originally speculated.

What was the original size? Where did they scale it back?

They were initially going to make it 12-14 stories I believe, but COVID and WFH made them scale it back.  Purchasing Brass Works may have played a part in that too.

As much as I beotch about all the 12 story buildings, 12 would have been great there.

From an old MLive article it sounds like employees from all over the state will be using and training at the new building.  That will be great for GR, especially with those on the east side who have never been to GR.  I wonder if they're working out any kind of deal with Embassy Suites.

That's interesting to know. I know several condo owners who rent out their downtown condos to traveling nurses quite a bit lately. Not quite airbnb style but shorter than 6 month terms.

Hopefully they’ll put a restaurant back in the Big E’s space soon. It’s basically plug and play. A buffalo wild wings or Ucello’s might do really well there, keeping with the sports bar theme and all of the tv screens already in place. I hope embassy suites does well with the new neighbors moving in.

From what I hear, the big issue is that the conference/catering kitchen is shared with the restaurant. I guess this is a major problem for many places for not wanting to get involved.
