Grosse Pointe's Cottage Hospital Joins Henry Ford Health System
Date:10/1/2007

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Cottage Hospital, which has served thousands of patients from the Grosse Pointes and other eastside communities for more than 85 years, has rejoined the Henry Ford Health System.

In 1986, Cottage Hospital became affiliated with Henry Ford Health System. In 1998, Cottage became part of the Bon Secours Cottage Health Services, along with Bon Secours Hospital. As part of the joint venture, Henry Ford Health System owned 30 percent of the joint venture. With Henry Ford assuming full ownership of Cottage, the joint venture has been dissolved.

Cottage hospital will be staffed by current employees, physicians from the local community, and members of the nationally-recognized Henry Ford Medical Group.

The Henry Ford Medical Group is one of the nation's largest and most experienced group practices, with 1,000 physicians and researchers in more than 40 specialties who staff Henry Ford Hospital and outpatient medical centers.

As part of the transition of ownership, Cottage Hospital has officially been renamed Henry Ford Cottage Hospital, preserving its legacy and rich heritage in the Grosse Pointes and across southeastern Michigan.

"Henry Ford Cottage Hospital will be an integral part of Henry Ford Health System, serving the Grosse Pointes and eastside communities with the safest and highest quality of clinical care, and superb personal service," said Nancy Schlichting, president and chief executive officer of Henry Ford Health System. "We pride ourselves on being an employer of choice and welcome the Cottage Hospital employees back to the Henry Ford family."

Eastside patients will benefit from the complete ownership as the hospital will act as a gateway to the expertise and professionals at Henry Ford Hospital and the entire health system.

For instance, in the last three weeks, Henry Ford Hospital received the following honors:

- Alliance of Healthcare Providers selected Henry Ford Hospital as a

2007-2008 Hospital of Choice Award. This award was designed to identify

America's Most Customer-friendly Hospitals.

- For the second consecutive year, the National Research Corporation

(NRC) named Henry Ford Hospital as the winner of the Consumer Choice

Award for Best Overall Quality for the Detroit/Wayne County area.

- Henry Ford Hospital was one of 41 U.S. hospitals named a 2007 Leapfrog

Top Hospital, based on results from the Leapfrog Hospital Quality and

Safety Survey, the most complete and current assessment of hospital

quality and safety available.

"Henry Ford Cottage Hospital will be an anchor for the east side allowing patients to receive hospital services in the community as well as an entry point into Henry Ford Health System," said Bob Riney, Henry Ford's executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Services currently available will remain at the Grosse Pointe Farms hospital, ranging from the inpatient psychiatric unit, rehabilitation services, women's diagnostic center and the emergency department.

"We are looking forward to investing further in the hospital, including new medical programs and technologies, and continuing to expand current services," says Anthony Armada, president and CEO of Henry Ford Hospital and Health Network.

In addition to Cottage Hospital, Henry Ford will also be the sole owners of:

- Henry Ford Rehabilitation Services - Lowell Park

44800 Delco Blvd, Sterling Heights

- Henry Ford Rehabilitation Services - Warren

3601 E. Eleven Mile Road, Warren

Henry Ford Cottage hospital's leadership team will be comprised of Anthony Armada chief executive officer; Denise Allar, R.N., chief operating officer; and Michael Dunn, M.D., chief medical officer.
