Less than two years after breaking ground, the Midwest Medical Center officially opened for patient service on Jan. 3. Oakwood President & CEO Brian Connolly and Dr. Mark Saffer of Midwest Health Clinic were joined by Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly, Jr., Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano and Dale Watchowski of REDICO Development Company to celebrate the completion of the building project during a Dec. 15 ribbon-cutting celebration of the Midwest Medical Center, at 4700 Schaefer Rd. in downtown east Dearborn.
Located within the new Dearborn Town Center development, the Midwest Medical Center will provide citizens of Dearborn, Detroit and southeast Michigan with comprehensive healthcare services including: 24-hour walk-in urgent care, primary and multi-specialty medical care, state-of-the-art imaging technologies, and on-site laboratory and pharmacy, an operating room, enhanced corporate health and occupational medicine programs, as well as a restaurant and retail amenities.
Midwest is part of a multi-specialty corporation established by Dr. Saffer in 1981, which was acquired by Oakwood in January 2009. Dr. Saffer, who has been recognized for his innovation of healthcare delivery models, oversees the day-to-day management of all Midwest facilities and will also lead the new Dearborn center.
