September 17, 2020
Wayne Health has new logo, new signs and website
Faculty practice plan will start seeing patients this month at its new Detroit headquarters
After emerging from bankruptcy last year, Wayne Health is on way to post $5 million surplus this year
Wayne Health is the new name of the Wayne State University multispecialty faculty group practice once named University Physician Group.
Along with a new name, Wayne Health has a new logo and a new website that highlights a new beginning a little more than a year after emerging from bankruptcy.
Over the next several weeks, new temporary signs will begin to be posted at clinic locations, including Detroit, Southfield, Troy, Livonia, Monroe, Taylor and Dearborn. Permanent signs will be up by the end of the year.
But Wayne Health’s continuing mission with its 308 physicians and 90 allied health practitioners will be to serve the population of the city of Detroit and greater Southeast Michigan with a wide range of specialty care and also primary care that integrates primary and behavioral health, said CEO Charles Shanley, a WSU graduate and vascular surgeon.
“We have internationally recognized expertise to add a new layer in our commitment to the vulnerable and the Medicaid population in the city of Detroit,” said Shanley.
