The Professional Plaza Clinic, initially known as the Professional Plaza Health Care Center, P.C., was founded in 1973 by the Civil Rights Leaders, Dr. Frank Perryn Raiford III, M.D. So strong was Dr. Raiford’s commitment to improving the lives of others that even at the age of 84 while battling a serious illness, his main priority was to ensure that after his death the needs of the patients that he loved and who depended upon him would continue to be met with excellent care and attention. Prior to his passing, Dr. Raiford passed the reigns of the medical practice to a loyal employee, Andrea McBride.
The PPC was selected as one of four medical clinics throughout Wayne County to participate in a study based upon developmental screening to detect and prevent a multitude of health related problems. Deemed a success, the study and the results obtained from the Professional Plaza Clinic now set the standard for medical practices throughout Detroit and the USA.
