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.
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
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.

Our campaign goal is $8,000,000.
The transformative gift of 5200 Venture Drive, made by Dick and Norma Sarns to Packard Health in late 2019, is valued at $3,000,000.
The remaining $5,000,000 will support the renovation and equipment needs at both the Carpenter Road and Venture Drive locations ($4,000,000 total estimated cost) and funding for the start-up of clinical operations and to build the foundation for expanded wellness and prevention programming ($1,000,000 total estimated cost).
