Henry Ford Health (Detroit) has announced a $2.5 billion development plan Detroit over the next decade that will include a new hospital, medical research facility, as well as residential and recreational components, according to the website detroitnews.com.

The health system is partnering with Michigan State University (MSU; East Lansing, Mich.) and the Detroit Pistons, an American professional basketball team based in Detroit, on the development.

The project will be anchored by an expanded Henry Ford Health academic healthcare campus, including a new 1 million-square-foot-plus facility and patient tower, with 877 patient beds housed among both facilities.

As part of Henry Ford Health’s 30-year partnership with Michigan State University, a new medical research facility will aim to align basic and translational research.

Henry Ford Health and the Detroit Pistons are beginning to engage community stakeholders to solicit feedback on the proposed transformative future development vision that will build upon the development of the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center, which opened in 2019. The publicly accessible center provides a series of community benefits, including Henry Ford’s Center for Athletic Medicine and neighborhood retail amenities including a fitness center and grocery store.

The health system is slated to break ground on the project in 2024.
