DETROIT – To meet its growing patient base in western Wayne County, Henry Ford Health System announced plans today to revitalize the site of a former Kmart in Plymouth Township with a new modern outpatient medical center.
The multi-story, 120,000-square-foot medical center, located on 40855 Ann Arbor Road at Haggerty, will provide specialty care services, as well as an emergency department and ambulatory surgery center.
The development will be a boon to the property location, which has been idle since Kmart closed its doors in November 2017. Henry Ford is expected to close on the property in mid-August. Construction is slated to begin shortly thereafter and be completed in 2021. Gensler and Hobbs and Black Associates, Inc. are the architects.
“In keeping with our ongoing strategy, this development will bring a comprehensive level of services to our growing base of patients in western Wayne County,” says Bob Riney, Henry Ford's president of Healthcare Operations and chief operating officer.
“We’re grateful for the support of township supervisor Kurt Heise and his team and the opportunity to be part of revitalizing this viable piece of property in Plymouth Township.”
The medical center will expand Henry Ford’s footprint in western Wayne to three outpatient facilities. The current facilities are at 14300 N. Beck Road in Plymouth and 6100 Haggerty in Canton. Both provide primary and specialty care services and have a pharmacy onsite.
The new site will offer services for patients and families of all ages including cancer screening, cardiology, gastroenterology, integrative medicine like acupuncture and chiropractic care, lab services, orthopedics, a pharmacy, physical therapy, radiology, pharmacy and walk-in clinic. It will be staffed by more than 120 team members.
“We believe our patients will appreciate the vast array of high-quality services available to them close to home,” says Richard “Chip” Davis, Ph.D., senior vice president and CEO of Henry Ford’s South Market. “Our patients can also expect to see a number of innovative touches at the new medical center that will enhance their patient care experience.”
The development marks the latest in a series of large-scale medical centers under construction across the metro Detroit area. A new medical center in Bloomfield Township is set to open later this fall and a new medical center in Royal Oak is scheduled for a summer 2020 opening.
