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.
