Michael Schumacher's wife is building a $19 million medical suite in their home to allow the injured Formula One champion to leave hospital, according to The Mirror.

Corinna Schumacher is said to be using some of the family's $960 million fortune to install the fully-equipped facility at their house on the banks of Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

It's been three months since the 45-year-old's skiing incident left him in a medically-induced coma at Grenble University Hospital in France. Doctors say it's highly unlikely he will ever wake up.

"Miracles happen, of course, and as a wealthy man he has the best care money can buy," a friend of the family told The Sun.

"But all the money in the world cannot fix what has happened to him. The family are making arrangements for a future of permanent immobility.

"Is there a sense of denial at play among them? I would say yes."

Every day Schumacher's family travel nearly 250km to the hospital where they spend up to 10 hours by his side, according to The Daily Mail.

Since his accident, the racing legend has wasted away, losing 25% of his body mass to weigh only 55kg.
