Mark your calendars! On June 20th, we will proudly (and formally) open the doors of our newest facility on the campus of Focus: HOPE.

Our new facility at 1355 Oakman becomes our fifth healthcare facility in our family of health centers around Detroit and in Warren. With 19,000 square feet, we will offer medicals, dental and behavioral health services to the surrounding community in Detroit and Highland Park.

More than the provision of services, we look forward to the facility serving as a gathering place for the community to learn, share resources and devise solutions to the health challenges our community faces. This is an important component to insuring our commitment to health, beyond healthcare.

For us at Advantage, healthcare is comprehensive and an ongoing effort to arm our community with the awareness and power to make better decisions about their health and the health of their family.

Our new facility is also a reflection of our commitment and investment in neighborhood stabilization—ownership, upgrades and maintenance to provide a high-level quality of facilities to services that each of our patients deserve.

And, while we are getting bigger, we are also working daily to get better. From our Call Center to our patient intake; Residents and Providers, we are all looking daily at ways to improve.

So, as we continue to grow we invite you to come along with us—share, celebrate and get healthy! Our official Ribbon Cutting is at 11AM on June 20th, followed by tours and activities that make up our Wellness Weekend!

It wouldn’t be a celebration without you! Stop by say hello, schedule an appointment and become a member of our Advantage Health Centers family!
