Memorial Healthcare of Owosso to develop new medical facilities

Posted: Updated:
(07/02/14) - Memorial Healthcare of Owosso is developing property just to the east of the city. Construction has already begun on two buildings. The development is called the Commons and will be operated by Memorial Healthcare. The first building will be used by Health Delivery Incorporated, which is currently based on the west side of Owosso.

"We're anticipating the opening on that somewhere between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15," said Jim Slingerland, Memorial Healthcare Development Corporation Board president.

The HDI facility will provide medical and dental services for the uninsured and under-insured. Another building on the site will be an assisted living facility to be known as the Meadows.

"We're seeing a major, major need for assisted living as people are longer able to maybe live on their own," Slingerland said.

The 36,000 square foot facility is expected to be open by early next year and should cost about $4 million. Many of the contractors and sub-contractors will be from Mid-Michigan. It will have 47 beds, including 10 beds for those with memory issues, and employ 20 to 40 people.

"Now we have an opportunity and space for them to go and for their families as well. They have a place for their loved ones to go and receive some assistance," Slingerland said.

The Shiawassee County Medical Care Facility is also considering building on the site.

"They are interested in looking at what a new development would mean to the services that they provide. We would love to work with them collaboratively to provide a development here at the Commons," said Brian Long, president and CEO of Memorial Healthcare.

Memorial Healthcare says the first phase of the Commons will use about 20 acres of property, which is located near M-21 and State Road. If there's enough interest, another 95 acres could be developed.
