Will the new Grace Hospital continue
Mount Cannel's religious affiliation?
Grace Hospital will have an active pastoral care
department and the chapel will remain open to
provide services for all denominations. However,
Grace Hospital will not be a religiously-affiliated
What advantages to the community does
Grace's membership in The Detroit Medical
Center (DMC) offer?
As a member of The Detroit Medical Center and
a teaching hospital for Wayne State University
School of Medicine, Grace benefits from the
experience of the other member hospitals, the
Yes, including 14 labor/delivery/recovery
(LDR) rooms, almost double the number now
available. These private suites will provide
a home-like, comfortable environment for the
delivery of a baby. Additional advanced birth
care facilities are being added for high-risk
pregnancies, making Grace the community's
hospital of choice for mothers-to-be.
As the move progresses, The Detroit Medical
Center is looking fora suitable buyer for the
building at 7 Mile and Meyers. In the meantime,
the grounds will continue to be maintained,
secured and well-lit. We realize that the con-
solidation will create more questions as it
progresses, and we will continue to address
questions as they arise. If you would like more
information concerning the new Grace
Hospital, please contact us at (313) 966-3288.

In addition to being part of the DMC, we are
investing in the improvement of programs and
services at new Grace including expansion of
the emergency room and a newly renovated
obstetrics unit. A full range of family services
will be offered from obstetrics to gerontology.
Specialists in many different areas will provide
for state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of
serious illnesses such as cancer, and heart and
How will the greater Detroit community
benefit from this consolidation?
Mount Carmel had experienced financial dif-
ficulties and would have closed, thus reducing
access to health care and causing the loss of
jobs. Grace Hospital's facilities were outdated,
and the need to expand several of its programs
required the addition of building space. Reno-
vation and expansion of the existing Grace
facility would have been very expensive, so the
move into Mount Carmel's larger building was
the ideal way to solve these problems and
eliminate costly, unneeded beds.
