Oakland County’s new Medical Examiners Facility in Pontiac, Michigan, is equipped with technologically advanced forensic equipment for the performance of autopsies, medical investigations and training. The two story, 38,000 square foot facility was designed by Harley Ellis to replace the original 5,000 square foot facility built in 1970 which, became inadequate to handle the 1,000+ autopsy and investigative procedures conducted annually.
