Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System has opened its new $38 million Medical Center-Bloomfield Township in The Village of Bloomfield in Bloomfield Township. The facility offers extended hours, covered parking, and self-service check in and payment options.
The two-story, 83,000-square-foot facility is located on Telegraph Road, north of Square Lake Road, and is the first of three Henry Ford medical centers slated to open in the next two years in Oakland and Wayne counties. The others are under construction in Royal Oak and Plymouth Township. The center at The Village of Bloomfield is the systems’ 11th outpatient medical center in Oakland County, not counting the Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital.
The project is the latest development in The Village of Bloomfield, an 87-acre site that sat idle for 10 years due to an annexation battle that took several years to resolve. The new facility will offer cardiology, eye care, neurology, orthopedics, radiology, rehab, women’s health, a pharmacy, and lab services. It has 85 exam rooms and will be staffed by more than 100 people.
“The Village of Bloomfield is a first-class development, and we’re thrilled to join with these other community partners and revive this prominent area of the township,” says Bob Riney, president of health care operations and COO for Henry Ford. “Our medical center offers under one roof a comprehensive level of health care services in combination with extended hours and other amenities that truly enhances the care experience for patients.”
Henry Ford is leasing the property from Southfield’s Redico.
“The Henry Ford Medical Center-Bloomfield Township at Redico’s Village at Bloomfield development is a great addition to the local community,” says Dale Watchowski, president and CEO of Redico. “It’s a great complement to the other site uses, which include senior housing, a hotel and multifamily (housing), as well as large and small retail (stores). We are pleased to continue growing our relationship with Henry Ford Health System, and we have enjoyed working with their team on this project.”
The center is open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. for the walk-in clinic, radiology, pharmacy, and lab on the weekends.
The medical center’s physician in charge is Dr. Keerthy Krishnamani, a family medicine physician.
Patients can check whether their appointments are delayed through an online reservation system, and e-visits and video visits are also available. Free Wi-Fi is offered instead of TVs, and a glass exterior, 12-foot ceilings, and gray earth tones in the interior decorating give the space an open and contemporary feel. There also is a self-service snack shop.
