University of Michigan Health is purchasing the 7.28 acres of vacant land at the former Kmart headquarters on Big Beaver Road in Troy to create a multi-specialty facility.

The University of Michigan Board of Regents approved the $4.42 million purchase Thursday, which will expand the health system's reach in Metro Detroit.

“We believe this new investment will bring our U-M Health expertise to a whole new community of patients, providing easier access for metro Detroit residents to our nationally renowned clinical expertise and innovation,” Dr. David Miller, president of U-M Health, said in a statement. 

“We are excited to move into a prominent, easily accessible location in Troy, where we will continue to expand our presence. We expect this new facility will be a location for advanced and innovative clinical programs including multi-disciplinary cancer care.”

The purchase is just the latest in an ambitious plan to expand services in Michigan.

A 12-story D. Dan and Betty Kahn Health Care Pavilion is set to open in 2025 in Ann Arbor, and the Ypsilanti Health Center in downtown Ypsilanti, is scheduled to open in late 2024.
