University of Michigan Health System
is opening a health care center in Northville Township, calling it an "area of growth and vitality in Michigan."
The $39-million project was approved in January. The opening date for the center, which will be located near 7 Mile and Haggerty roads, will come sometime in 2014. It will be near the Livonia Center for Specialty Care, creating something of a heath care complex.
The new center will be 100,000 square feet of doctors' offices and specialized practices for adults and children. While exact plans won't start to be laid out until March, there is expected to be a musculoskeletal program for advanced care of bones, joints and muscles. In addition, radiology services, infusion treatments for cancer and non-cancer patients, and other medical services are planned.
The idea is to make care more convenient and closer to home for patients treated at U-M's hospitals in Ann Arbor and also to extend the U-M health system's reach into southeast Michigan.
