Henry Ford Health System is finalizing plans to make a $500 million investment in its flagship hospital in Detroit and expand the medical center's footprint across West Grand Boulevard, building a south campus with doctors' offices, research facilities and an education center....
The seven-hospital system also plans to lead a collaborative effort aimed at redeveloping a larger 300-acre section of Detroit's New Center neighborhood, turning it into a "Community Health Park." Henry Ford says it intends to work with developers to transform blighted land directly south of its hospital into a hub for mixed-use housing, retail and other commercial activity. It hopes these efforts will attract another $500 million in investment by outside residential and commercial developers.
