First-Class Project Provides Greater Clarkston Area With Comprehensive Array Of High-Quality Health Care Services
McLaren Health Care Village is designed to deliver the full continuum of health care services using the most recent, state-of-the-art technologies and health care facilities to provide prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure at one site.
As Clarkston area’s first comprehensive, one-stop healthcare destination, McLaren Health Care Village is located on 79 acres at the corner of Sashabaw Road and Bow Pointe Drive in Clarkston. The $600 million project is being built in three phases.
McLaren Health Care, in collaboration with the Clarkston Medical Group, opened in May, 2009, Phase I of McLaren Health Care Village at Clarkston. The key components of Phase I are the 135,000 sq. ft. Clarkston Medical Building, the 42,000 sq. ft. McLaren Cancer Institute-Clarkston, and the 5-acre Garden of Healing and Renewal.
Located within the new Clarkston Medical Building is the Clarkston Medical Group, a longstanding primary medicine group practice under the leadership of Dr. James O’Neill and Dr. Tim O’Neill. Other services in that building include an urgent care center, a pharmacy, laboratory services, an ambulatory surgery center, home medical equipment store, a breast care center, bariatric center, physical therapy, sports medicine and fitness center, sleep diagnostic clinic, wound care clinic, and many other comprehensive specialty healthcare services.
The McLaren Cancer Institute-Clarkston will provide state-of-the-art radiation therapy, advanced medical oncology, a retail center for patient needs, mobile PET/CT imaging, educational programming and family support services.
The Garden of Healing and Renewal provides peaceful, soothing surroundings in which to focus healing energies, talk privately and build strength. The garden features an oasis of fountains and sculptures, sitting areas and beautiful paths to encourage exercise and curative reflection. The lush, landscaped campus is open for the community to use and enjoy.
The second phase of McLaren Clarkston will include a state-of-the-art, comprehensive cardiac center, three life science facilities, additional medical office buildings, and 200-bed hospital.
The third phase will include a 100-bed addition to the hospital, as demonstrated by need.
The McLaren Health Care Village brings together a top-rated health care system with one of the premier physician groups of the Clarkston community. McLaren Health Care hospitals, health plan and home health agencies regularly earn recognition for excellence in patient and customer care from respected national organizations and rating agencies. McLaren has also won recognition for its superior heart care, neurosurgery, orthopedics and cancer care. McLaren’s long-standing joint venture with Michigan State University also brings some of the most cutting-edge cancer treatments in the nation to the Clarkston community.
For more than 45 years, 10,000 families have trusted the Clarkston Medical Group’s 15 board-certified physicians for their medical care. The Clarkston Medical Group employs 15 board certified physicians in pediatrics, internal medicine, family practice and emergency medicine. More than 120 nurses, medical technicians, receptionists, billing, and management staff work together to achieve one goal: providing the highest quality medical care to our patient.
The design concept for McLaren’s Health Care Village complements and integrates with the architecture of Independence Township. All the buildings, the design and materials used are environmentally friendly. A special effort will be undertaken to obtain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the main hospital building.
It is estimated that this project will create about 3,000 new jobs. Every 15 new jobs results in $3 million dollars in economic impact to the area in the form of wages, state and local taxes along with the multiplier effect of these dollars moving through the local economy according to the Oakland County and Federal Reserve Board and the Health Care Village will generate $600-$800 million in annual economic impact.
