DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) — Six primary care centers will open in Wayne County and surrounding areas, through a partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Dedicated Medical Senior Facilities, a subsidiary of ChenMed.

The first four dedicated centers will open during the summer of 2021.

Through the partnership, Dedicated will provide medical care services to Blue Cross members with Individual Medicare Advantage plans, with an emphasis on moderate-to-low income seniors.

While the locations of all six clinics are currently being finalized, they will reside in areas where convenient access to primary care providers is limited.

One of the clinics has been confirmed for the East Warren/Cadieux area of Detroit.

ChenMed expects to invest $20 to $25 million in the new health centers and hire approximately 200 Detroit employees by 2023.=
