Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN) member Henry Ford Health announced a $2.5 billion development plan over the next decade with the Detroit Pistons and Michigan State University for a walkable community mixed-use development. The facilities will include 550+ units of affordable residential housing, and commercial and retail space. The development will be anchored by a new 1 million-square-foot premier hospital and medical research facility.
From the Henry Ford Health announcement:
“Like all major U.S. cities, our great city of Detroit deserves a premier academic medical center and destination for the most advanced care, research and education,” Mr. Robert G. Riney, Henry Ford Health’s President and CEO, said. “As an anchor institution that’s been committed to building strong, healthy communities for more than a century, we know we can deliver on that promise – to double down on our commitment to being relentless advocates for those we serve.
“That includes not only charting a path to lead the healthcare of tomorrow, but also working alongside our partners to create vibrant and thriving neighborhoods, foster opportunities for growth and success, and remove barriers to wellness – particularly in our underserved populations.”
