The Guild Factor
One of the strongest connections
between Huron Valley-Sinai and the
Sinai of the past is the Sinai Guild.
When the DMC acquired Sinai and
it was merged with the DMC's Grace
Hospital in Detroit, the Sinai Guild,
long known for its strong volunteer
commitment and philanthropic know-

Karmanos Cancer Institute but has
maintained special ties with Huron

of equipment and technology to the

The Sinai Center for Women, an out-
patient diagnostic center at the hospi-
tal, initially focusing on breast health,
was created through a $1 million grant
from the Jewish Fund. Eventually, it
will offer comprehensive health servic-
es for women along with educational
and other resources.
The Sinai name will appear on
a new professional building on the
hospital campus, currently in the plan-
ning stages. In appreciation for the
Sinai Guild's generosity, the facility
will be named the Sinai Guild Medical
"We felt this was where the future
was going;' Harris said. "Jewish indi-

community — it's our tzedakah."
