ANN ARBOR – VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System will be opening a new, 40,000-square-foot, community-based outpatient clinic on the border of Canton and Westland, near the intersection of Ford Road and I-275.

Once built, the facility will serve an estimated 14,000 veterans in Western Wayne County, with plans to improve operational efficiencies with the implementation of its Patient-Aligned Care Team care delivery model.

The new clinic, owned by Johnson Development LLC of Birmingham, Alabama, will provide primary care, mental health, imaging, laboratory and pathology services to veterans in the state-of-the-art facility, slated to open in 2021.

"We began work on this project back in 2014," medical center director, Dr. Ginny Creasman said in a statement. "Getting a new clinic approved is a big deal and involves a lot of stakeholders. So, we're honored to be able to get this done and bring our services closer to home for so many of our veterans. It's going to make it so much more convenient for them to get the care they've earned."

SciArt Studio of La Crosse, Wisconsin, will design the project, which will cost an estimated $12 to $15 million.

The Western Wayne County clinic will join VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System's existing clinic network with locations in Flint, Jackson and Toledo, Ohio, which serve more than 69,000 veterans in the region.
