Word of the newly expanded Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Oakwood Heritage Hospital (Taylor MI) caught this hometown boy's blogging eye. The $1.5 million investment, featuring a conversion from multiplace to monoplace chambers, seems especially prudent for a healthcare facility serving this hardworking and rapidly aging downriver Detroit community. More to the point, the hospital sits on the ruins of your faithful correspondent's old Little League field, wedged between his alma mater, the abandoned and soon-to-be-razed Taylor Center High School (Go Rams!); his childhood parish, the St Alfred Catholic Church; a funeral home; and the UAW regional headquarters. Rest assured we'll soon be adding the clinic to our Michigan treatment center directory. And of course we've already scored an invitation to tour the facility next time we're in town. (People in this business are so friendly.) Our best wishes till then for a successful and healthful practice.
