The DMC has been selected as one of the 32 “Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations” (ACO) (http://www.michiganpioneeraco.com/) in the country. We will be working with CMS to define the way health care will be delivered in southeast Michigan as well as in the country.
The DMC’s record of service is well known in metro Detroit, and under a new partnership with Tenet Health Systems, it continues to grow.
In early 2012, the DMC broke ground on the new DMC Heart Hospital, the first of its kind in Michigan. The state-of-the-art facility promises to transform cardiac care in the Midwest by housing cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and vascular surgeons all under one roof. The facility was completed in mid 2014, ensuring that the DMC will continue to lead the way cardiac care is defined in southeast Michigan.
In February 2016, the 63,000 square-foot Children’s Hospital of Troy opened offering an emergency department, operating rooms, clinics and a variety of outpatient services.
From the founding of Children’s Hospital in 1886, to the creation of the first mechanical heart bypass pump in the world at Harper Hospital in 1952, the DMC’s quest for innovation and compassion for the under-served is unmatched.
