The Detroit Regional Chamber delivered a new report this week, including some very interesting findings, perhaps that Michigan led the nation in bouncing back from the Pandemic. Think about that for a moment, that’s quite an achievement for a state that for so long had the reputation of moving and turning like an aircraft carrier. But the findings also show us the challenges that remain, chief among them finding the people who will power the Michigan of the future. Not easy when a third of your college graduates get their diplomas and then head for the door.
At the same time that report was being presented downtown, a big announcement was being made a few miles north. Henry Ford Health, Michigan State University and the Detroit Pistons are all coming together to create a massive new healthcare complex, one that hopes to make Detroit a medical destination. But it’s much more than a big new hospital.
