IHA WestArbor Medical Center Nears Completion

7/14/2016 – IHA is pleased to announce that its newest medical center, located west of the Ann Arbor Auto Mall at 4350 Jackson Road in Scio Township, is proceeding on schedule and will begin a phased opening on Monday, August 15.

IHA WestArbor Medical Center tops out at 77,000 square feet and will be home to multiple primary and specialty care practices and numerous ancillary services. Over 215 staff and providers will call the WestArbor facility home and expect to provide care for more than 150,000 patients during the first year of operation.

“IHA practices have enjoyed extraordinary growth over the years in recognition of IHA’s patient-focused capabilities and quality as documented by Consumer Reports, which found that IHA was metro Detroit’s top medical group. IHA will be moving many well- established practices into this new center in order to improve access and convenience for our patients, provide for needed expansion space, enable new developments and provide future growth options. Among the major IHA practices which will relocate to this center include: IHA Ann Arbor Family Medicine, IHA Child Health – Ann Arbor, IHA WestArbor Internal Medicine, and IHA WestArbor OB/GYN,” states Bill Fileti, IHA’s CEO. “In addition, urgent care services, general dermatology, orthopedic surgery, maternal-fetal medicine, pharmacy, clinical lab, radiology, physical therapy and other clinical services will be added. We envision that this comprehensive medical center will be extremely attractive as a one-stop health center to the community.”

The new 77,000 square foot, three-story facility will blend a contemporary exterior design full of windows with both first and second floor walk-out entrances. The new medical center, similar to IHA’s highly-regarded Domino’s Farms location, capitalizes on wooded views and an interior design that uses natural light to make patients feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the facility.

“The completion of this new medical center will certainly be among our 2016 highlights, as we continue to expand our primary and specialty care presence across the communities we serve. Through this new facility, patients will once again physically see us forging ahead to actively live our mission of always focusing on new and better ways to deliver health care to the patients we serve,” adds Fileti.

Beginning Monday, August 15, the first of nearly one dozen new services and programs opens at the facility. The following week, Monday, August 22, the new Urgent Care Center opens along with several other primary care and ancillary services. By Labor Day, all three floors of the center will open and welcoming area residents.

“We are extremely proud to be launching our fourth urgent care – after hours location and are confident that all of the services, which we are bringing into the area, will have a positive and immediate impact on the health and well-being of the residents,” notes Matthew Ajluni, DO, Medical Director, After Hours, Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine program for IHA. Our urgent care center will be open 365 days a year and will offer an extensive list of services and treatment options allowing residents to find all the care they need close to home.”

Today, activity trackers like Fitbit, Jawbone or even phone apps are all the rage. These trackers help individuals keep track of their daily activities by monitoring the distance walked, calorie consumption and, in some cases, heartbeat and quality of sleep. Never before have people had such obtainable access to their basic personal health information on a day-to-day basis.

One of the easiest ways to stay in shape, live a healthy lifestyle and get some use out of those activity trackers, is walking. According to Physical Activity Guidelines of America, adults should engage in 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity each week. That means an adult walking for at least 30 minutes, five days a week can reach that goal, while also reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and increase longevity.

Engaging in regular physical activity like walking is one of the most important things that people of all ages can do to improve and maintain their health. A few of the many benefits of walking include strengthening bones and muscles, improving balance and coordination, helping maintain a healthy weight and even improving a person’s mood. Another great benefit of walking is that it requires minimal to no equipment. Taking a 30 minute walk is as easy as going outside.
