Detroit-area residents will have a lot more urgent care centers to choose from in the next 16 months, as Henry Ford Health System, Detroit Medical Center, Ascension Health Michigan, and Beaumont Health all have announced they’re going to build up their operations there. Beaumont has the most ambitious plans, as they work with WellStreet Urgent Care to finance and open 30 new centers by the end of next year. Analysts say the expansion plans are fueled by growing demand from both patients and Detroit-area employers for lower costs, greater access, and more convenience. Beaumont has revealed that its new locations will all be located near high-volume emergency centers, large employers, and commercially dense areas. Currently, the company operates several multispecialty ambulatory care centers, specialty clinics, and physician offices—but only one urgent care center.
