Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS) has opened a new 6,000-square-foot urgent care and student and employee health center on the corner of the Schoolcraft College campus in Livonia. The site is located on the first floor of the Jeffress Center, near the corner of 7 Mile and Haggerty Road.
“We are excited to offer health care services to students and employees of Schoolcraft College, as well as everyone living and working in the Livonia and Northville communities,” says Dave Spivey, president and CEO of St. Mary Mercy Livonia. “This facility will increase access to health care and encourage students, employees and others to live healthier lives.”
Operated by physicians from the St. Joe’s Medical Group, the new urgent care offers non-emergency medical care on a walk-in basis, including treatment for non-life threatening illness and injury. As Schoolcraft’s first ever student and employee health center, the site also provides students and staff with health and wellness services, such as physicals, pregnancy testing, and vaccinations.
Earlier this year, SJMHS became a sponsor of the St. Joe’s Sports Dome, also located on Schoolcraft’s campus. The dome’s opening marked the launch of Schoolcraft College’s SC Elite Program, which includes MercyElite Sports Performance to provide health, fitness, and nutritional programs to youth and adults in the surrounding area.
“Everything about our work with Saint Joseph Mercy Health System makes sense,” says Conway Jeffress, Schoolcraft College’s president. “Convenient quality health care for our students and community is most important, but we also are excited about the synergy that made this project a reality. When two great organizations get together with a common goal, everybody wins.”
The urgent care center is located at 39201 W. 7 Mile Rd. in Livonia and is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays and holidays.
