According to the Lansing State Journal, McLaren Greater Lansing plans to close two southside hospitals when it opens a $450 million facility by early 2022 near Michigan State University on Lansing's southeast side.

The existing facilities, the McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital at 401 W. Greenlawn Avenue and the 2727 S.  Pennsylvania Avenue McLaren Orthopedic Hospital, will continue to operate for nearly three more years until the new, consolidated campus just east of U.S. 127 opens to patients.

McLaren has hired a national advisory firm to assist in the search for a purchaser to repurpose the buildings.
