Henry Ford Health System officials announced plans last week to build a 120,000 square-foot outpatient medical center at the former Kmart site on Ann Arbor Road near Haggerty Road which has been vacant since 2017.
According to an official statement from the health care system, the sale of the property is expected to be finalized this summer and construction should begin shortly there- after. A completion date of 2021 is anticipated, according to officials.
The planned outpatient medical center will be a multi-story building located at 40855 Ann Arbor Road and will provide specialty care services and will have an emergency department and ambulatory surgery center.
The medical center will expand the Henry Ford footprint in western Wayne to three outpatient facilities. The current facilities are at 14300 N. Beck Road in Plymouth and 6100 Haggerty in Canton Township. Both provide primary and specialty care services and have a pharmacy onsite.
In addition to an emergency facility and ambulatory surgery center, 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, physical therapy, radiology, pharmacy and walk-in clinic. It will be staffed by more than 120 team members, according to Henry Ford officials.
“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,” Bob Riney, Henry Ford president of Healthcare Operations and chief operating officer, said in a prepared release. “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.”
Heise said he believes such a development will spur more interest in development along that corridor.
“This is an absolute home run for Plymouth Township and western Wayne County,” said Heise.
“I think you’re going to see some terrific development coming in the next several years” he added.
“You’re looking at people going there every day for medical treatment.”
