U-M Health appoints architect for Troy clinical facility


University of Michigan Health will commission Hobbs + Black Architects of Ann Arbor to design a 220,000-square-foot clinical facility in Troy, after approval by the Board of Regents on June 20.

U-M Health plans to build a multispecialty facility at 3100 W. Big Beaver Road in Troy, on a seven-acre parcel that is part of the former Kmart headquarters.

The new facility will provide advanced specialty, diagnostic and therapeutic services, and will include an outpatient surgery and procedures center. The project will include a multistory parking deck of approximately 900 spaces.

“We are eager to begin work with Hobbs + Black Architects, who have extensive knowledge and expertise with health care facility design,” said Marschall S. Runge, CEO of Michigan Medicine, dean of the Medical School and executive vice president of medical affairs.

“This project is key to our strategy of providing easier access for metro Detroit residents to our nationally renowned clinical expertise and innovation.”

Design work is scheduled to begin immediately. The estimated budget for the design phase is $11.24 million. Funding will be provided from U-M Health resources.

U-M Health is the clinical division of Michigan Medicine, U-M’s academic medical center.

In alignment with Michigan Medicine’s commitment to sustainability, this building will follow university guidelines regarding Leadership in Energy and Environment Design to minimize negative environmental impacts.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in winter 2026, with a plan to open for patient care in summer 2027.

“This action gets us one step closer to bringing our advanced and innovative clinical programs to our patients. Our goal is to keep care close to home, so patients don’t have to travel when there isn’t a need to do so,” said David Miller, president of U-M Health.

“Last year there were more than 180,000 patients that came to receive care at Michigan Medicine from Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. To best serve Michigan, we need to extend our capabilities, knowing that not everybody can travel to Ann Arbor. This is a continued demonstration of our commitment to providing patients and communities with the right care in the right place at the right time.”

The new facility in Troy is among multiple U-M Health projects expected to increase patient access. Others include the 12-story D. Dan and Betty Kahn Health Care Pavilion, set to open in 2025 in Ann Arbor, and the Ypsilanti Health Center in downtown Ypsilanti, set to open in late 2024.
