Yesterday is over. Change is the essence of life.

20 years publishing FridayMusings without bias but not without opinion

Livonia continues to be a hot spot for transformational

projects as Schoolcraft College and Nino Salvaggio are in

 talks to bring a new market, the picture is of the

West Bloomfield Market, to Livonia campus.

Schoolcraft College and Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace are in talks to potentially add a new retail market with educational capacities located on the College’s main campus in Livonia.

A non-binding memorandum of understanding has been signed between the two organizations to possibly bring a new facility to the north end of the campus on land currently occupied by a parking lot. 

“This agreement is the first step to an exciting development here on campus,” said Dr. Glenn Cerny, president of Schoolcraft College. “Bringing Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace to campus would not only benefit our students with brand-new educational opportunities but add another exciting business to the bustling Haggerty Road corridor.”

Founded by the late Nino Salvaggio in 1979, the company will expand its footprint to the tri-county area with the opening of the Livonia store. 

“On behalf of the entire Nino Salvaggio family, we are excited to work with Schoolcraft College to debut a vibrant new grocery store on the Livonia campus with state-of-the-art educational facility for students,” said Leo Salvaggio.

Plans are in the works for student learning opportunities for supply chain management, as well as business and accounting.

Stay tuned to FridayMusings for more information on this development as it becomes available.

Trinity Health IHA Medical Group Expands Access for Patients

Seeking Gynecologic Oncology Care in Ann Arbor and Livonia

Michigan Women Benefit from Trinity Health’s Local Expansion While Health Systems Nationwide Struggle to Meet Demand for Specialized Care

Trinity Health IHA Medical Group is excited to announce the launch of its new Gynecologic Oncology Program. The outpatient practice, located on the campus of Trinity Health Ann Arbor and Trinity Health Livonia, has hired gynecologic oncologists Angela Kueck, MD, Rebecca Liu, MD, and Kevin McCool, MD, to increase local access to much-needed care for women living with cancerous and noncancerous conditions of the female reproductive system.

"I am excited and grateful to join the Trinity Health IHA Medical Group family and support women in Ann Arbor, Livonia and surrounding communities," said Dr. Kueck, pictured here. "A gynecologic cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, especially for women living in communities across the country that lack access to board-certified specialists experienced in diagnosing and treating these serious conditions. I want women to know we are here for them and invested in their health and well-being. They are not alone."

Gynecologic oncology specialists diagnose and treat several women’s reproductive health issues, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer.

Trinity Health IHA Medical Group Gynecologic Oncology offers women compassionate care and support, from screening to treatment, all the way through recovery. The gynecologic oncology team includes comprehensive care, including supportive services and access to clinical trials. The office also offers nurse navigators, who can make life easier for patients by coordinating appointments and services, answering questions, and connecting them with supportive care services that promote holistic healing, additional resources, and education.

Trinity Health IHA Medical Group Gynecologic Oncology is located on the Trinity Health Ann Arbor Campus, 5303 Elliott Dr., Ste 220, in Ypsilanti, Michigan, and in the Trinity Health Cancer Center - Livonia, located at 36475 Five Mile Rd. in Livonia. New patients can call 734-712-HOPE to connect with an RN navigator who will facilitate a patient evaluation.

The typewriter is not available for phone calls or emails Saturday and Sunday. Mental health and rehabilitation time. Out and about enjoying life.

What motivates FridayMusings:

We can't only define Livonia as taking small steps toward maintaining the way things were. That will give us mediocre outcomes. Our goal needs to be innovative and transformative.
