Sinai-Grace Facts

In spring 1999, two hospitals with roots in the community boldly consolidated services under one roof. The former Sinai and Grace hospitals joined to create DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital in the former Mount Carmel Hospital building. In 2010, Vanguard Health
Systems, an investor-owned hospital company, acquired Sinai-Grace’s parent company, Detroit  Medical Center (DMC),  making it one of the five largest for-profit systems in America.

Today, Sinai-Grace is the largest DMC  hospital, offering more than 40 specialties, including cardiology, oncology, emergency medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, and 13 surgical specialties. As a full-service community  hospital located in northwest Detroit, Sinai-Grace has new facilities, new technology, new programs and a new attitude.

Facility Highlights

•  Invested in
- extensive renovation of all patient rooms
- cafeteria modernization
- refurbishment of Professional Office Building suites
- update of the surgical lounge and resident on-call rooms
- opening of a new Kresge Eye Institute  optical eye care shop and Season’s Hospice inpatient unit
•  Renovation  and expansion of two new outpatient  pharmacies -- one located in Sinai-Grace Hospital and the other in the Professional Office Building.
•  In 2012, Sinai-Grace  began its largest construction  project  -  a $77 million  expansion and renovation to its ER and ICU  which is expected to be completed in 2014.

Technology Highlights

•  Sinai-Grace opened the city’s first open-bore magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)  system. This new, state-of-the-art MRI system accommodates claustrophobic patients or patients up to 500 pounds with its large bore, or opening. In addition, Sinai-Grace purchased video goggles, allowing  patients to watch their favorite movie during  their MRI procedure to help patients relax during the scan.
•  Sinai-Grace expanded its laparoscopic surgical capabilities by investing $2 million  in a minimally invasive robotic surgical system called the da Vinci Surgical System. Less pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery are benefits from minimally invasive robotic procedures.
•  Sinai-Grace totally digitalized its mammography suite. Digital  mammography is the latest technology for detecting cancer early and it delivers significantly less radiation  than conventional mammography.

Program Highlights

•  Sinai-Grace Hospital’s  Advanced Wound  Care Center offers a comprehensive  outpatient approach that promotes the healing of complicated wounds. Our team of specialized physicians and wound care nurses treat hard-to-heal wounds and teach patients how to prevent future wounds.
 
•  Sinai-Grace  has teamed up with Seasons Hospice  & Palliative  Care to create the first hospital-based hospice unit in Michigan. The 10-bed, newly remodeled unit provides patients with a homelike atmosphere when special care like ventilator support, or aggressive pain management is needed, complementary services include music therapy, massage and pet therapy, as well as bereavement and support groups for families.
 
•  Sinai-Grace Hospital is a training  site for students from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Wayne State School of Medicine. Sinai-Grace has a long history of providing  medical education.  With  our partner, Wayne  State University  School of Medicine, we offer allopathic residencies in various specialties. Now, we offer osteopathic residencies and a dually accredited internal medicine residency that has earned national recognition for its 100% board pass rate for seven years – something only a few hospitals in the nation have achieved. Our vision is to be a community  hospital that offers medical students and residents a first-rate training program.
