DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital
DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital is a full-service hospital with 404 licensed beds and more than 700 physicians, 700 nurses, and 1,900 support staff servicing more than 214,000 patients annually. Services and capabilities include cardiology, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, urological services, psychiatry, radiation oncology, gerontology, physical medicine, and orthopedic surgery.
DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital ranks among the nation's safest hospitals, according to The SafeCare Group, having recently made its list of 100 SafeCare Hospitals. The selection process involves a comprehensive analysis of U.S. government data from more than 4,500 acute care organizations. The SafeCare Group, operating out of Lexington, Kentucky, selected the top hospitals based on more than 30 key measures covering the triple aims of excellence in healthcare: quality, patient safety and efficiency of care.
After two years, $77 million, 200,000 man hours, 1,085 tons of steel, 9,176 sheets of dry wall and 1,200 gallons of paint, DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital has opened the doors of its new Emergency Department. As the largest construction project in northwest Detroit in more than a decade, the 59,000 square-foot space is more than double the size of the old ED. It features large, hard-walled, private treatment rooms, trauma rooms with advanced lifesaving equipment, a confidential Psychiatric Crisis Center and special treatment areas for geriatric and pediatric patients.
DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital is the first in Michigan, and one of a select number of medical centers nationwide, now offering Blue Light Cystoscopy (BLC) with Cysview®. The KARL STORZ Blue Light Cystoscopy system is a newly approved diagnostic imaging system to help detect bladder cancer in patients known to have or suspected to have this disease. “The availability of Blue Light Cystoscopy is in keeping with DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital’s commitment to advancing care for our patients in and around Detroit with the best tools available," said Ranko Miocinovic, M.D., DMC’s Director of Urologic Robotic Surgery and leader of Sinai-Grace’s urologic oncology program.
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. 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.
The Joint Commission has recognized DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital as a 2015 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®. Recognized for its excellence in accountability measure performance shown to improve care for certain conditions, Sinai-Grace is one of only 1,224 hospitals in the United States to achieve the distinction this year.
Sinai-Grace was recognized as part of The Joint Commission’s 2014 annual report “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care.
The Top Performer program recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, stroke, venous thromboembolism and perinatal care, as well as for inpatient psychiatric services and immunizations.
