The State News at Michigan State University revealed today that St. John Health System wants to hand over its Detroit Riverview Hospital for free to MSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine. The hospital would become a state institution, and receive an estimated $14 million in federal funding.

I don't think that St. John is very happy about its Riverview Hospital commitment. Sounds like they want to unload.

MSU COM would do well by taking the offer. We'll see what happens, but I'm not holding by breath when it comes to MSU wanting to jump in to the inner city.

Give? Free? Come on, we know better than that, don't we? While the building may not cost MSU anything, you can be sure that St. John stands a lot to gain by the relationship with MSU if they get the nod...and I don't mean a warm fuzzy feeling.

Did St. John not try to close this location a few years ago?

St. John would receive about $6 million/year in management fees.

I don't see how Riverview's location in the inner city would be a detterent to MSU. Currently MSU is building a medical facility in downtown Grand Rapids as well.

This isn't news. St. John offered an alternative to the DMC and Oakland University offers a week or so ago. The DMC has offered the old Hutzel Hospital which would be converted to classrooms and labs while Oakland offered land to build a new education building on campus. As stated above, St. john would recieve a fee for managing Riverview.

6 million a year is just the appetizer....don't forget the government funds that they would likely share in for teaching.

and the DSH dollars from the feds available to a public hospital which is what Riverview becomes if it's owned by a university.
