About the Institute

The Arthritis Institute of Michigan was founded in 1998 and began in a small office in Howell Michigan. It was the first rheumatologic center in the history of Livingston County.

The Arthritis Institute of Michigan was the first completely electronic office in the county in 2002, with computers in each room and wireless broad band networking.

In November of 2003, The Arthritis Institute of Michigan moved to a state of the art facility in Brighton, designed specifically for arthritis patients. There is barrier free access, drive up and covered drop off and natural lighting in every room of the building. In addition, the new facility houses an infusion suite and a clinical research center.
