Michigan's Luxury Hospital

The $360 million new Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital which opens March 15 is designed to look more like a luxury resort and less like a medical center.

The LEED-certified complex includes a grocery store with take-home meals and organic produce, a kitchen auditorium for healthy cooking demonstrations, a tea kiosk in the atrium and a retail mall area that includes a pharmacy, medical supply store, a Caribou Coffee and a boutique for mothers and newborns. Rooms have flat-screen televisions, wifi access, 24-hour room service and live feeds of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

It may sound like a great place to stay but don’t plan on a long visit, the hospital staff plans to save money by encouraging shorter stays and using a one stop approach for clinical outpatient procedures to streamline the diagnostic process. [via]
