UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
Patients
move into
new Mott

In eight hours, 170
patients transfer
to women's and
children's hospital
By MICHELE NAROV
Daily StaffReporter
One-hundred and seventy
patients traversed an indoor
passageway yesterday connect-
ing the old C.S. Mott Children's
Hospital and Von Voigtlander
Women's Hospital as the hos-
pitals' new $754 million home
opened for business yesterday.
Over an eight-hour period,
170 patients from every depart-
ment of the hospital made the
transition to the 348 inpatient
rooms, 50 maternity rooms, 48
neonatal intensive care rooms
and 16 operating rooms in the
new building.
The outpatient facilities will
continue to be transitioned into
the new space throughout next
week. Once the move is com-
plete, the old hospital facility
will consist of single rooms for

adult patients.
The transfer process began
last Wednesday when hos-
pital staff started categoriz-
ing the patients by severity of
symptoms in order to move
individuals with more serious
conditions first, according to
University spokeswoman Mar-
garita Wl.agerson. Last Satur-
day night, staff members began
preparations for the transition
and slarted to move patients
yesterday morning at 7 a.m.
Patients in the newborn
intensive care unit and children
in other intensive care units
were moved into the new space
first. The last patient settled in
by 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon.
Kara Gavin, University
of Michigan Health System
spokeswoman, said the most
impressive aspect of the project
was its scope.
"I was walking around the
building in the hours before the
different areas started to move
and it's amazing that even as big
as this building is, everything is
ready," Gavin said.

The Wolverines spent the

to jump into the top 14 spots
of the BCS standings to qualify
for a BCS bowl. When the final
rankings came out, Michigan

The rankings' reconfigura-
tions brought controversy as to
whether the Wolverines were
deserving of the opportunity to
play in the game.
"We don't control any of
that," said Michigan coach
Brady Hoke. "The things that
we can't control we really don't
worry about because we have
enough things as a program
and how we want to represent
Michigan on a daily basis that
we have to worry about."
