It’s not often patients say “Wow!” when they enter a health care facility, but that is what the team at the newly renovated Henry Ford Allegiance Health Center – Cascade Ridge hear every day.
Inspired by our patients, the goal of the extensive renovation of Cascade Ridge was to create easier access to a range of services for both men and women. The serene, welcoming facility provides dermatology, plastic surgery, esthetics services, a diagnostic center and a family practice, in addition to the women’s health center and a thriving OB/GYN practice.
“We received such motivation from our patients and wanted to effectively meet their needs in a practical way,” said Sandy Maes, Vice President, Physician Integration. “We are excited to better serve our community by offering the convenience of multiple services under one roof.”
Beyond convenience, patients also benefit from the co-location of multiple services because physicians find it even easier to consult with one another to meet the unique needs of each patient. For example, obstetrician/gynecologist Candice Gates, MD, can confer with the Women’s Health Center team about special classes for expecting moms. Dermatologist Katherine D’Sa, DO, can ask plastic surgeon Shoshana Ambani, MD, about ways to address a patient’s facial scarring.
“We love the whole atmosphere here,” said dermatologist Kate Viola, MD. “It is so energizing to work with such an amazing team, and to see how excited and pleased our patients are with the renovation. When patients tell me how delighted they are with the ‘one stop’ convenience and care, I am thrilled!”
