UM Health-West breaks ground on new $10.4M Wayland Health Center

The University of Michigan Health-West broke ground on Tuesday, March 28, at the site of the new Wayland Health Center, following the announcement of a $10.4 million investment in the Wayland community. The groundbreaking ceremony took place at 1113 West Superior St. and was attended by representatives from UM Health-West, as well as members of the Wayland community.

The new University of Michigan Health-West Wayland Health Center is scheduled to open in May 2024 and will be more than 75 percent larger than the current office at 17,300 square feet. This expansion will enable UM Health-West to add primary care and specialty providers to meet the needs of the region’s growing population.

“We are thrilled to break ground on the new University of Michigan Health-West Wayland Health Center,” said UM Health-West CEO Dr. Peter Hahn. “This new center reflects our commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services to the Wayland community. We listened to the people of Wayland when they told us they wanted more healthcare access and expanded services close to home.”

In addition to existing staffing of three primary care physicians and three advanced practice providers, the new center is expected to have the capacity to add three or four more physicians and providers. The center will also have space to accommodate monthly rotating specialties, such as cardiology and obstetrics and gynecology.

“The University of Michigan Health-West Wayland Health Center reflects our philosophy of bringing care to patients when and where they need it most,” said Dr. Rakesh Pai, President of University of Michigan Health Partners and Chief Population Health Officer for UM Health-West. “We remain dedicated to bringing exceptionally high-quality primary and specialty care, close to where our patients live.”
