Turner project team celebrates breaking ground at Henry Ford Health System

July 25, 2017

The Turner project team at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan recently celebrated breaking ground on the latest addition to their main campus: the six-story, 187,000-square-foot Henry Ford Brigitte Harris Cancer Pavilion. The celebration also marked the start of a major campus expansion -- adding 300 acres across the street from the original hospital, which was founded in 1915 by Henry Ford himself. 

“The theme of the event was Building Hope, which speaks to our work as construction managers, but also to the incredible work the Henry Ford Cancer Institute will begin as soon as they get into the new space,” said David Kelly, vice president and general manager.


Named for Brigitte Harris—the late wife of prominent philanthropist Mort Harris—who succumbed to pancreatic cancer in July 2016, the Henry Ford Brigitte Harris Cancer Pavilion aims to give hope and care to patients at every stage of their treatment. It will offer ambulatory cancer care, precision medicine, clinical trials, and support with a focus on cure development. It will be connected via a convenient patient skywalk to Henry Ford Hospital. In addition to the grounds, the third floor will feature a shaded garden terrace for a comfortable, calming experience for patients, their families, and hospital staff.


The pavilion is scheduled for completion in 2019.
