If developing, attracting and retaining talent remains key to future economic prosperity, then Michigan’s big three research universities say they’re clearly doing their part, at least on the front end of the equation.

At $271.2 million, the expansion and renovation at Mercy Health’s Hackley Hospital campus in Muskegon stands as one of the largest health care projects in Michigan today.

The investment volume lifted the amount invested by the Holland-based angel group to $19.6 million since 2004, an increase of 20 percent from a year earlier. Two pending new investments that should close in the first quarter should elevate that total to more than $20 million, executives said.

A $167,383 grant from the AstraZeneca Healthcare Foundation will support Catherine’s Health Center’s Healthy Heart Team that works to improve the cardiac and overall health of patients who have multiple medical conditions.

Chemical Financial Corp. plans to acquire Talmer Bancorp Inc. in a $1.1 billion deal that will create one of the largest banks in the Midwest.

Quality Aluminum Products Inc. — a maker of siding, gutters, roof edging and other exterior products for the residential housing industry — became the seventh portfolio company for the Grand Rapids-based Blackford Capital’s Michigan Prosperity Fund.

Mike Damstra’s chance to fill a gap in his company’s service footprint along the lakeshore arose last year when North Ottawa Community Health System came knocking.
