The article informs that Saint Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, believes its new patient tower will not only help it attract patients, but also medical staff at a time of shortages in areas such as nursing. Camille Shy, vice president of development, said that the tower's new layout and design, in addition to the hospital's surgical pavilion opened last fall, should help the Superior Township hospital compete in the growing market it serves.
