Main Street Gets Refreshed

April 01, 2015

If you haven’t taken a stroll around Main Street at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital lately, you’re in for a surprise. Recent updates have made this area a more exciting destination than ever.

The Main Street locale is filled with shops and restaurants that cater to health and wellness. “It’s not a typical hospital setting,” says Cindy Harrison, vice president of talent and workforce strategies at the hospital. “The area has a wonderful ambience, and it’s designed to look like a northern Michigan town.”

Fresh foods — for your convenience

One of the biggest changes is a new convenience store within the LiveWell Shoppe. “We have  everything — from fresh produce and milk to healthy frozen meals and just-baked bread,” says Tyler Wang, manager of the wellness complex and retail services. “And we’re trying to get as much of our food locally as we can.”

The idea for the store initially came from the staff. “Our employees wanted a convenient place to pick up groceries on their way home from work,” says Harrison. “But it’s an easy stop for our visitors, too.”

Proudly serving Starbucks

The Bloomfield Coffee Lodge on Main Street also got a taste-lift. It reopened with a new look and now serves Starbucks coffee and other Starbucks products. “In addition, we’re serving our own baked goods, as well as products from Great Harvest Bread,” says Wang.

“We’re here for the community, and we hope everyone takes advantage of all that our Main Street offers,” says Harrison.

Shop and Dine on Main Street. Whether you need a caffeine fix, fresh produce or a gift, you’ll find it on Main Street.
