The future is Bright-on! New health center set to open in 2018

December 6, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Strategy & Leadership,

The new Brighton Center for Specialty Care is scheduled to open in September 2018.

The future is certainly bright for patients and families around the region. That’s because Michigan Medicine is expanding its reach by opening a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility in 2018 — the Brighton Center for Specialty Care.

“Our clinical enterprise is committed to impacting more lives every single year,” said Kathy Herron, associate director of the new facility. “This health center will allow our world-class care to reach more patients in a more convenient location right in their community.”

The facility is large, comprised of more than 296,000 square-feet of space. It will include 153 exam rooms, 33 treatment rooms, six short stay rooms and four operating rooms. It is scheduled to open in early September 2018.

“We will have dozens of specialties at the new facility, ranging from cardiology to oncology to pediatrics and even a sleep lab,” Herron said. “We also have 19 services moving over from the current Brighton Health Center, which will allow that building to expand its primary care options. In the end, the Brighton community is set to gain an exceptional health care facility.”

Grow your career

Not only does the new health center ensure that patients and families benefit from the organization reinvesting in the region, but employees will too.

“As Michigan Medicine grows, we’re excited to be creating jobs and offering new opportunities for our employees,” said Steve Cubis, lead talent acquisition specialist in human resources. “To best support our current employees in reaching their employment goals and finding the position that best fits them, we will be taking a phased approach to hiring that will first focus on identifying current employees to fill positions at the new health center. This means that many of our talented faculty and staff will soon get the chance to secure a position at the new location well before the facility opens.”
