Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital is in talks with West Bloomfield Township officials to expand its offerings with an ambitious plan of new facilities.

Approval from the Township Board for a zoning ordinance amendment is necessary to continue the work, which will take place over many years, according to officials. 

New facilities initially being considered at the 160-acre campus include: freestanding surgical outpatient centers or hospitals

  • medical laboratories and educational or research centers
  • "specialty hospitals" —  facilities with both limited in-patient and outpatient care including rehabilitation, behavioral and long-term acute care services
  • a "medical hotel" — a facility with limited inpatient care for persons recovering from hospital treatment or surgery along with overnight facilities for family members and caregivers
  • medical office buildings
  • recuperative, congregate and independent elderly housing.

Other highlights on Monday's agenda

  • A zoning ordinance amendment to allow for indoor storage facilities in the Township Center District of West Bloomfield. This is an issue which arose from a request to redevelop the former Dunham's property on Northwestern Highway into such a building.
  • A recommendation from the Personnel Committee to allow a consensus opinion by the Township Board to decide who to hire for the now-vacant Information Technology Director position.
