Wayne Health Opens Outpatient Infusion Clinic at Midtown Health Center
Wayne Health of Wayne State University announced the opening of its new outpatient Infusion Clinic at its 400 Mack Ave. Detroit Health Center in Midtown, which will offer infusion services for immunological and inflammatory diseases.
The infusion clinic will serve patients with conditions such as systemic lupus, Crohn’s disease, connective tissue diseases, multiple sclerosis, and other neuropathies that can improve through treatment with biological agents.
Talis Healthcare, a national leader in infusion services based in Dallas, is Wayne Health’s operational partner for the clinic.
“The use of biologic agents is growing and has become a treatment of choice for many diseases with an inflammatory or immunologic basis,” says Dr. Aris Q. Urbanes, medical director of the Wayne Health Infusion Clinic. “Many of these diseases disproportionately affect specific populations and have an environmental component to their cause and course. The opening of this clinic will greatly enhance the care we are able to offer these patients.”
Wayne Health’s Detroit Mack Health Center opened in September 2020 and offers a full range of integrated primary, preventive and behavioral health care by physicians and advanced practice providers in internal medicine, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and behavioral health.
“It’s a great honor to collaborate with Wayne Health and help meet the need for accessible infusion care services in Detroit,” says Brian Zweben, president of Talis Healthcare. “Our mission at Talis is to offer state-of-the-art infusion services while always putting the patient first. It’s rewarding to be able to launch a clinic in the Detroit region where highly-skilled clinicians can provide this much-needed care in a comfortable and private setting.”
These services fall under the umbrella of Wayne Health’s Center for Population Health Accountability, offering innovative, community-based, and mobile approaches to whole-person care, addressing physical and behavioral health needs and social determinants that diminish health and well-being.
Patients can contact the Wayne Health Infusion Clinic by calling 313-448-9870, or by emailing InfusionClinic@med.wayne.edu.
