Our goal is to make travel as easy as possible. During visits to the Health System, a patient services coordinator will assist with arranging necessary medical appointments, navigating the admission process, scheduling follow-up visits and obtaining copies of medical reports/films after consultations are completed. When patients return home, they will have received high quality healthcare from some of the country’s top specialists and clinical teams.

  • Concierge Services: Once you have scheduled your appointment, we can help make lodging reservations suited to a patient’s needs and budget and arrange transportation between Detroit Metropolitan Airport and Ann Arbor.  We can also assist with rental car arrangements. Lastly, we can arrange for and provide local directions for recreation, shopping, or other Ann Arbor activities.
  • Financial Services: Patient Financial Counselors will assist you with preparing estimates, understanding the bill, providing payments, and more.
  • Translation Services: Highly-trained interpreters make communication easy among patients, families, doctors, caregivers, and clinical staff. That includes translating forms, questionnaires, and other documents.
