ROYAL OAK (WWJ/AP) – Beaumont Health System plans to build an $18 million neuroscience center in metro Detroit.

The three-story, 80,000-square-foot building on the health system’s Royal Oak campus is set to be completed in November 2013.

The project will consolidate Beaumont’s neurological services and make more room in its medical offices for students of Oakland University’s School of Medicine.

“When people come here for outpatient neurological care, they have to go to  multiple locations,” Colette Stimmell, Beaumont’s director of corporate communications, told The Detroit News. “We’re trying to make it easier for our patients.”

The first two floors of the proposed neuroscience center will house a craniofacial clinic and services for patients who suffer from strokes, concussions, Alzheimer’s or other neurological disorders, while the third floor will be left unfinished and will be leased to private physicians, Stimmell said.

The center will be built on the site of Beaumont’s former renal center, which  has been empty for two years.
