University of Michigan Health to Acquire Vacant Former Kmart Headquarters for Clinic Expansion

In Troy, Michigan, a former Kmart headquarters is set to be transformed into a new health clinic. The University of Michigan Health has announced its plans to purchase the property for $4.42 million to expand specialty clinical services and provide increased patient access in Oakland County and surrounding areas.

According to Marschall S. Runge, the CEO of Michigan Medicine, this move will serve as the starting point for a broader and deeper presence of U-M Health in southeast Michigan. The goal is to create a statewide network of care that allows patients to receive world-class healthcare close to home.

The University of Michigan Health is the clinical division of Michigan Medicine, the academic medical center of the University of Michigan. The new facility in Troy is expected to offer innovative clinical programs, such as multi-disciplinary cancer care, under the leadership of David Miller, M.D., the president of U-M Health.

Furthermore, the new building will be constructed following U-M guidelines for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) to minimize negative environmental impacts. This project is part of several initiatives aimed at increasing patient access, including the upcoming D. Dan and Betty Kahn Health Care Pavilion in Ann Arbor and the Ypsilanti Health Center in downtown Ypsilanti, set to open later this year.
