McLaren Macomb announced a $25-million expansion to build the McLaren Macomb Harrington Medical Center and Ambulatory Surgery Center with construction set to begin after the ceremonial groundbreaking on June 28.
The new facility will be three stories and offer 62,000 square feet of space. The new facility will be located in a previously abandoned lot on Harrington Boulevard in Clinton Township next to an existing McLaren Macomb medical office.
“We are living in a time when people are considering their health perhaps more so than ever before, and it is our responsibility as members of this community to provide access to exceptional health care,” says Tom Brisse, president and CEO of McLaren Macomb. “This new medical center and its broad array of specialties will make a significant impact in our patients’ ability to address their needs — from basic to complex, and from primary to essential services.”
The facility will include four operating rooms, diagnostic and imaging services with a mobile MRI, primary care, pain management, orthopedics, electrophysiology, vascular surgery, neurology, urology, endocrinology, physical therapy, and a pharmacy.
The initial plans were formed in 2019 to address a growing need for physician office space along with enhancing patient experience and convenience. The expected completion date is June 1, 2022.
This expansion follows last year’s opening of the Wayne and Joan Webber Emergency and Trauma Center on Hall Road in between Garfield and Hayes Roads in Macomb. It has also opened a Medical Outreach Clinic and an 18-bed in-patient rehabilitation unit in the last year, with plans to open its Senior Behavioral Health Center in Shelby Township in September 2021.
McLaren Macomb partnered with SensusOne, a Rochester-based, health care-centric real estate firm for the sale. For the design, it partnered with Stucky-Vitale Architects in Royal Oak, who have worked with Henry Ford Health System and the Detroit Medical Center in the past.
