Detroit Medical Center Announces Healthcare Partnerships
Detroit Medical Center's Children's Hospital of Michigan has established new agreements with Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital and Hurley Medical Center in Flint to expand pediatric surgical expertise at these two hospitals.
DMC has also established a new Children's Hospital of Michigan Specialty Center in West Bloomfield to house pediatric surgery services for patients, the hospital announced.
Over the past several years, Children's has established outpatient specialty centers in several surrounding towns.
"As the state's busiest hospital and referral center for pediatric medical and surgical specialty care, we understand how important it is to provide this care in locations and facilities that are convenient and easily accessible to area pediatricians and their patients," said Herman B. Gray, MD, president of Children's, in a media release. "Partnerships like these provide unique opportunities to efficiently and economically expand patient access, while maintaining the highest quality care for children and adolescents in surrounding communities and throughout the state."
