Henry Ford Health System Plans $110M Cancer Center in Detroit
DETROIT — The Henry Ford Health System has begun planning a new $110 million cancer center as part of its $500 million expansion and improvement of 300 acres in Detroit. The 144,000-square-foot cancer center will be five stories and include a rooftop garden and skywalk to connect it to Henry Ford Hospital. Completion is slated for summer 2018. Site planning for the facility will be completed by the end of the year. Groundbreaking is slated for spring of 2016. The cancer center will anchor Henry Ford Hospital’s South Campus expansion project. The 10- to 15-year vision for the expansion project includes adding green space and commercial, retail and housing developments. Clinical and support services for each type of cancer diagnosis will be located on the same floor in the new facility, offering a multidisciplinary experience to patients. Surgery will continue to be performed at Henry Ford Hospital. The facility will be funded by internal and philanthropic support.
