Saint Joseph Mercy Health System and IHA’s new Livonia Medical Center, located on northeast corner of campus adjacent to I-275 off Seven Mile Road, has welcomed its first practices and services, with many more to be moving in over the coming months.
The 124,000-square-foot healthcare facility also is near Schoolcraft College’s new Health Sciences Center, which will be the future home of all programs related to healthcare.
“We’re very pleased to see the Livonia Medical Center come online and extend a hearty welcome to our campus,” said Dr. Glenn Cerny, president of Schoolcraft College. “Having the many specialty practices located in a convenient and familiar location is a tremendous asset for our community. We’re also excited that our new Health Sciences Center is just across the street, creating a great opportunity for many of our students in our healthcare-related programs to literally go from classroom to a vital, in-demand job and fulfilling career.”
Schoolcraft College currently offers programs in nursing, pharmacy, health information technology and medical assisting among the many choices.
Starting in the Fall 2021 semester will be two new programs in the fast-growing and vital field of medical imaging: Radiologic Technology (X-ray) and Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ultrasound). An Associate of Applied Science degree is available in each.
Both of the medical imaging AAS degrees are 67-68 credits, of which 26-27 credits are prerequisites and the other 41 credits are program requirements. A full-time student can complete the requirements in two years.
The Livonia Medical Center opened on Monday, April 19, with St. Joe’s Medical Group (SJMG) Sports Medicine as the first practice to move in, followed by IHA Livonia Primary Care on April 26. The IHA Urgent Care, previously located within the Jeffress Center on campus, relocated to the new building on April 23. The urgent care is open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., including holidays.
Additionally, as part of the ongoing collaboration between Schoolcraft College and Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, the St. Joe’s Mercy Elite Sports Center on campus opened earlier this year. The 74,000-square-foot multi-purpose space includes eight volleyball courts, a running track, soccer training space and fitness and rehabilitation space. Mercy Elite provides physical therapy, strength and conditioning and fitness training for all interested schools, clubs, teams or individuals. A state-of-the art fitness laboratory, classroom space and faculty offices for Schoolcraft College’s Associate Degree program in Movement Science also share the space.
