CLINTON TOWNSHIP — A new medical and surgery center should be open in Clinton Township by this time next year.

On June 28, a groundbreaking was held for the McLaren Macomb Harrington Medical Center and Ambulatory Surgery Center in Clinton Township.

It will be located across the street from McLaren Macomb Hospital.

The three-story, 62,000-square-foot building will be located along Harrington Street, in Clinton Township, across from the hospital’s parking structure. The stand-alone building will occupy a previously vacant lot next to an existing McLaren Macomb medical office building.

The new center will include four operating rooms, diagnostic and imaging services with a mobile MRI, primary care, pain management, orthopedics, electrophysiology, vascular surgery, neurology, urology, endocrinology, physical therapy and a pharmacy.

“The project for the new building was first conceived in 2019 in order to address a need for physician office space, but also to enhance patients’ convenience in accessing common service lines, such as diagnostics and outpatient surgical procedures,” a press release states.

The building is set to be complete by June 1, 2022.

“The opening of the new service marks the latest in a successive line of projects expanding McLaren Macomb’s services or access to care,” the release states. “Following the opening of the largest emergency center in Macomb County, a new, larger Medical Outreach Clinic debuted at the end of 2020, and an 18-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit opened in February.”

In September, McLaren Macomb is scheduled to open its Senior Behavioral Health Center in Shelby Township.

For the medical and surgery center to open in Clinton Township, the hospital partnered with SensusOne, a healthcare-centric real estate firm with a mission of improving community healthcare through the development of complex facilities. Stucky Vitale Architects designed the building.
