“The District Detroit continues to catalyze new and exciting opportunities for our community, like this
project with the Detroit Medical Center that will bring additional world-class, specialty medical services
to Detroit.” said Christopher Ilitch, President and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. “It will also increase the job 
opportunities, tax base and retail activity on Woodward Avenue and will spur even more growth in the
surrounding area.” 

The DMC Sports Medicine Institute will be the first of its kind in Detroit, and will include features such as a golf simulator, 3-point basketball court and a 40-yard track. Additionally, there will be specialty rehab services, such as a mobile MRI and a rehab pool.

teams they represent,” said Dr. Anthony Tedeschi, DMC CEO. “We look forward to offering injury
management and performance improvement services supported by sports science, biomechanics and
other innovative therapies."
