Sinai-Grace Hospital video
DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital draws on the traditions of two community hospitals and combines that history with the strength of a large medical system - The Detroit Medical Center (DMC). The hospital today continues to have deep roots in the community, providing compassionate, personal care backed by advanced medical treatments available locally and throughout the DMC. President and CEO, Paula Autry, provides an overview of Sinai-Grace's noble past, current services, and bright future in this video.

At Sinai-Grace, you and your entire family can receive complete medical services close to home. With a team of more than 700 physicians in 40 specialty areas, working with nearly 700 nurses and 1,800 support staff, Sinai-Grace has the experts to keep you in good health. From emergency treatment to cosmetic surgery, we have the range of healthcare services you demand.

More than 200 medical students and resident physicians in a variety of medical and surgical specialties get their advanced training at Sinai-Grace every year. In addition, radiology technicians, pharmacists, physician assistants and chaplains train at the hospital.

A Look at Our Noble Past

In April 1999, two hospitals with roots in the community since 1888 boldly consolidated services under one roof. The former Sinai and Grace hospitals joined to create the leading community academic hospital in northwest Detroit and relocated to the former Mount Carmel Hospital building.

Grace Hospital was founded in 1888 and named after one of the founder's daughters, Grace McMillan Jarvis. Sinai Hospital's roots go back to a clinic opened by Harry Saltzstein, M.D., in 1922. Sinai Hospital first opened its hospital doors in January 1953 to give Jewish healthcare professionals a place to practice and as a central institution for the Jewish community.

A Bright and Promising Future

Between 2012 and 2015, DMC invested $77 million in Sinai-Grace over three phases of construction, making it the largest construction project in Northwest Detroit in over 10 years. Phase I of the project was completed in 2014 and resulted in a new 59,000 square foot Emergency Department and Trauma Center. Phase II was completed in February 2015 and produced two new technologically-advanced, family-centered Intensive Care Units. Phase III resulted in a modern and bright new entrance, expansive 18,000 square foot lobby, new roomy registration suite, and expanded radiology area which all opened in June 2015. Phase III was completed in January 2016 with the opening of the new and expanded laboratory.

Centrally-located in the new expansive lobby of Sinai-Grace are the commissioned artworks of The Nordin brothers from The Detroit Design Center. Fitting with DMC's quest to not only be an important part of Detroit, but to support Detroit entrepreneurs, the "LifeTrees" sculptures symbolically tell the story of Sinai-Grace's rich and impactful past, while strongly signaling a bright and influential future in the health of Northwestern Detroiters and the surrounding communities it serves.
