YPSILANTI, MICH. — A new 12,296-square-foot healthcare facility known as the IHA Health Center @ EMU has opened. Situated at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, the health center will provide primary healthcare services to members of the EMU community as well as the community at large. In addition to primary care, the facility will offer women’s health services, urgent care services and an onsite third-party pharmacy operated by Campus Medical Pharmacy. Dr. Lisa Whipple serves as the site medical director for the primary care and gynecology team. The project represents a collaboration between St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor hospital and the university. EMU is also constructing an adjacent facility, the EMU Campus Wellness Center, that is set to open in January 2020. The total cost of the combined facilities is $14 million. EMU is the project owner. IHA is one of the largest multi-specialty groups in Michigan and is a wholly owned subsidiary of St. Joseph Mercy Health System.
