Beam with SJMHS Colleague Signatures Now Sits in New IHA & St. Joe’s Livonia Medical Center

LIVONIA – Last year, we hosted a structural beam onsite and invited all SJMHS colleagues to sign it. Colleagues filled the beam with words of encouragement, expressions of pride in their work or department, and general well wishes. IHA and Schoolcraft College, who are partners in this project, also hosted the beam at their sites for signatures. The beam was then installed during a beam-raising ceremony in the new IHA & St. Joe’s Livonia Medical Center.

A year has passed, and construction of the new center is nearing its close. The beam is now displayed at the top of a stairwell on the south side of the building, intentionally left exposed so that people can see the signatures.

The Livonia Medical Center will open this April. The 124,000 square foot facility will house a variety of service lines, including primary and specialty care, urgent care, an outpatient pharmacy, ambulatory surgery, outpatient imaging, and more.

Thank you to all who took the time last year to make your mark on the new center. We will share more information about the Livonia Medical Center in coming weeks.
