Campaign for Expansion

The need for care in our community is growing. Your donation will support our expansion. 

Packard Health’s Campaign for Expansion is our plan to focus on the underserved and uninsured in our community by providing increased primary care, behavioral health, addiction treatment, and supportive services.

Prevention and wellness, long a part of care at Packard Health, will expand with new programs and services.

We believe health care is a human right.

Our Plan

1. Relocate Packard Health’s main office to 2650 Carpenter Road in Ann Arbor

2. Open a new practice at 5200 Venture Drive, off South State Street in Pittsfield Township

3. Build prevention and wellness programs available to everyone in our community

2650 Carpenter Road, Ann Arbor – Packard Health’s main office will move just one mile from our current location. The renovation will follow best practices for health care building, planning, and design.
5200 Venture Drive in Pittsfield Township – A new practice with wellness education and programming, and the new location for our administrative offices. Read “Vision at Venture Drive.”

Case for Support

For almost 50 years, Packard Health has been here for the community. The Campaign for Expansion will lay the foundation for the next 50 years.

  • Our current crowded and aging building at 3174 Packard Road has outlived its design life and its service to the community. 
  • Our three Washtenaw County locations cannot support the growing need for services. Between 2015 and 2019, patient visits increased 92%, from 20,873 to 40,026.
  • There are persistent health inequities in our community and a need for solutions to address them.  
  • The COVID-19 crisis brings new urgency to our Campaign for Expansion. Illness and death have fallen disproportionately on the most vulnerable. 

A generous gift from Dick and Norma Sarns launched the Campaign of Expansion. Our gratitude is boundless.

A huge thank you to Linh and Dug Song for making possible a $250,000 Challenge Match to Packard Health's Campaign for Expansion. The Challenge has been met thanks to many generous supporters, and has put us much closer to our Campaign for Expansion finish line!

The Song's gift is made possible through the Song Family Fund held at the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

“The global pandemic has exposed systemic injustices and magnified inequities experienced by so many. Good health is a critical building block for improving quality of life and addressing social injustice. We are pleased to be able to help Packard Health overcome disparities in health care today while building a more equitable future for people in our community.”
