Henry Ford Health System is expanding to Bloomfield Township, announcing plans to build a two-story, 83,000 square foot medical center that will be part of the Village at Bloomfield, located along Telegraph Road north of Square Lake Road.
The medical center will offer primary care and women's health care initially, along with a walk-in clinic, pharmacy, OptimEyes and other retail services. It will add a number of specialties services in the future.
The new Henry Ford Medical Center will offer evening and weekend hours, and will provide additional parking through a multi-level garage.
REDICO, a national development corporation out of Southfield, bought the foreclosure rights to the Village at Bloomfield, formerly known as Bloomfield Place in 2016. The Village at Bloomfield is an 87-acre mixed use development that will have a Menard's and a 432-unit three-story apartment complex to be developed by Edward Rose & Sons of Bloomfield Hills. Redico said they are developing both the Village and Henry Ford Medical Center.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.
Construction on the new medical facility, expected to cost approximately $38 million, is expected to begin by the end of 2018, with its projected opening in the fall of 2019.
