New Medical Center to Be Part of Village at Bloomfield Development
Detroit – Henry Ford Health System has announced plans to build a new medical center in Oakland County. The two-story, 83,000 square foot facility will be part of the new 87-acre mixed-use development known as the Village at Bloomfield, located along Telegraph Road north of Square Lake Road.
The medical center will offer primary care and women’s health initially, as well as a walk-in clinic, pharmacy, OptimEyes and other retail services, and will add a number of specialties services in the future.
“We are thrilled to expand into this part of Oakland County and beyond,” said Bob Riney, President, Healthcare Operations and Chief Operating Officer, Henry Ford Health System. “Not only are we providing a new option for high quality clinical services for the people of Oakland County, we are also joining other organizations in breathing new life into this development project.”
REDICO, based in Southfield, is developing both The Village at Bloomfield and the medical center.
“We are excited to have Henry Ford Health System as part of our mixed-use development, complementing the services we’ll be providing including retail, residential and hospitality,” said Dale Watchowski, President and CEO, REDICO. “Most importantly, we are thrilled to expand on the relationship REDICO, and its affiliated company American House Senior Living Communities, have had with Henry Ford Health System over the last decade.”
The new Henry Ford Medical Center will offer evening and weekend hours and provide additional parking through a multi-level garage.
“We have really expanded our mission to give our patients and customers more convenient and affordable options,” said William Conway, M.D., CEO of the Henry Ford Medical Group. “When you combine the accessibility of extended hours and ample parking, with the digital advancements we’re making like e-visits and online messaging with your doctor, we really believe we are creating a unique healthcare experience in this market.”
Construction on the new facility is expected to begin before the end of this year, with the opening set for the fall of 2019. The project is expected to cost approximately $38 million.
