A technology-laden medical clinic featuring virtual visits, a self-schedule app, and bike sharing will open on Monday in downtown Detroit.
“We see an opportunity to serve thousands of young people who are now working and living in central downtown Detroit,” says William Conway, CEO of the Henry Ford Medical Group in Detroit. “It’s smaller, more efficient, and a whole lot more virtual than what we do in a routine office.”
Geared towards millennials, the $300,000 Henry Ford QuickFix clinic will operate from a 2,500-square-foot space in the Grinnell Building, located at 1515 Woodward Ave. a few buildings south of the David Whitney Building. The clinic will offer traditional services to treat common illnesses, such as ear infections, the flu, sore throats, and upper respiratory infections.
Acupuncture and massages, on-site video conferencing for travelers, virtual visits with health care specialists, a self-schedule appointment phone app, and a concierge representative are all additional services provided by the QuickFix clinic.
The clinic will also team up with Zagster, downtown Detroit’s bike share program, to offer Henry Ford bikes to assist those coming to the clinic from work or other areas of the city, says Conway.
“We’d really like to continue to build this as a one-stop shop for solving health care problems,” Conway says. “It looks like this should be a big hit, and if it is, then we’ll be doing more of these.”
The clinic will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and will take all forms of insurance. For those who do not have insurance, a visit will cost $85.
QuickCare is Henry Ford’s newest development, and seventh patient care facility in the city.
