Northwest Detroit’s Only Pediatric and Obstetric Emergency Room

As the only hospital in northwest Detroit equipped to provide pediatric and obstetric emergency care, along with adult care, DMC Sinai-Grace provides emergency and urgent care to more than 100,000 patients per year.

Our high volumes means our experienced emergency medical staff is extremely experienced in quickly treating a wide range of illnesses and injuries cases.

Level II Trauma Center

DMC Sinai-Grace's ED is designated a Level II trauma center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Level II designation signifies that the hospital is able to treat any emergency patient, regardless of the severity of the injury. A trauma surgeon is available to respond rapidly 24 hours a day. Orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, emergency physicians and all ancillary services are also available.

Only five hospitals in Wayne County have earned Level I or II status, three of which belong to the Detroit Medical Center: DMC Sinai-Grace, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital and DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

The Level II designation indicates that patients are quickly treated and transported to the operating room if needed. It also measures patient outcomes and continuous efforts at quality improvement.

Cardio Team One

Cardiac cases are by far the most common type of case handled by the Emergency Department (ED). The Sinai-Grace ED team is dedicated to getting patients from the ED through completed treatment in the cath lab in less than 90 minutes, a national standard for quality of care. 

Sinai-Grace Hospital is part of DMC Cardio Team One. DMC’s Cardio Team One has committed unprecedented effort and resources to ensure you won’t wait in an emergency. When a heart attack hits, time is muscle. Lost minutes mean lost heart muscle, which means longer odds of survival and longer recovery time for those who do.

Cardio Team One will treat its patients in half the national average standard time. You will be in recovery by the time doctors at other hospitals are merely starting to scrub in.

Stroke and trauma care

DMC Sinai-Grace’s ED has always been considered a primary trauma and stroke center by Detroit EMS. DMC Sinai-Grace has been recognized nationally for its exceptional stroke care.

Board-certified specialists

Board-certified Emergency Medicine physicians staff the department, complemented by registered nurses trained and certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), trauma nursing and emergency pediatric nursing. In addition, the ED nursing staff receives extensive training in adult trauma care. Currently more than 90 percent of our nurses are certified. 


For physician training, the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at DMC Sinai-Grace recently received accreditation status of three years.  This three-year program provides specialty training to 36 residents each year.
