Regents Roundup

Cancer Center to offer services in Canton

On July 21, the Board of Regents approved a proposal to add a chemotherapy infusion area at the U-M Health System Canton Health Center. The new space will be 4,300 gross square feet and will include nine infusion treatment chairs, laboratory services and a new CT scanner for imaging scans that indicate whether chemotherapy treatment is working. Cancer Center nurses will staff the center. The renovations are budgeted at $4.7 million, primarily for the purchase of new equipment. Funding will come from the U-M Hospitals and Health Centers resources. It is expected to open in summer 2006.

Family Med moving to Domino's Farms

The Family Medicine Clinic at the East Ann Arbor Health Center (EAAHC) will relocate next spring to leased space at Domino's Farms. The regents approved a $2.65 million project budget to renovate and equip 12,500 square feet of clinic and office space, which includes $1.6 million for moveable equipment. The relocation will enable the expansion of the Japanese and Executive Health programs with the clinic, and will make room for the anticipated future relocation of the Geriatrics Program to the EAAHC.

Emergency power to be installed at Hatcher

An electrical generator will be installed at the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library in order to provide a second source of power for life-safety systems as required by building codes. The installation in the loading dock area is scheduled to be completed next summer and is estimated to cost $850,000.
