Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building Forges Ahead

Public-private partnerships to align this fall

Norm Beauchamp, Doug Meijer, and other stakeholders stand on the roof deck of the new medical innovation building in downtown grand rapids.

Named for cancer survivor and passionate cancer treatment advocate Doug Meijer, the Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building is scheduled to open this fall.

Thanks to a generous $19.5 million gift from Doug Meijer and the Meijer Foundation in October 2019 to the MSU College of Human Medicine, the building will feature a state-of-the-art theranostics clinic—and one of the world’s most advanced cyclotron-equipped radiopharmacies.

“MSU’s biomedical research vision will come to life through the Meijer family’s amazing commitment,” says Norman J. Beauchamp Jr., MD, MHS, MSU’s executive vice president for health sciences. “Together we will transform health…and prove that hope, health and healing can be made available to all people.”

Tenants of the 200,000 square-foot building will span private industry and health care teams focused on various disciplines from cancer research to medical device development.

The Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building is one of four buildings MSU has developed along Grand Rapids’ Medical Mile. Once all four buildings are completed in 2022, there is an estimated annual economic impact of $339 million for West Michigan, according to a recent study.
