Detroit News: Wayne State opens Midtown health care center
September 17, 2020
Access to primary and specialty health care will increase by tens of thousands of patients in Detroit with the opening of a new medical center in Midtown this month, according to Wayne State University officials.
The new 400 Mack Detroit Health Center already is staffed by physicians with Wayne Health, the 300-member practice affiliated with the Wayne State University School of Medicine. The group previously was known as the Wayne State University Physician Group but changed its name on Sept. 9.
Wayne Pediatrics, which includes Wayne State University Department of Pediatrics faculty physicians, will move to the health center on Sept. 21.
The facility also will house a new Center for Population Health Accountability, designed to address social determinants of health — like poverty, housing issues and food insecurity — that affect the health and well-being of many Detroit residents.
Colette Stimmell, a spokeswoman for Wayne Health, said the facility will increase health care access by as many as 80,000 adult patients in Detroit. The group also has multi-specialty clinics in Dearborn, Southfield, Troy and on the Detroit Medical Center campus in Detroit, in addition to a psychiatry clinic in Livonia, dermatology clinic in Monroe, and ophthalmology clinic in Taylor.
