The Henry Ford Medical Group is one of the nation’s largest and most experienced group practices, with more than 1,200 physicians and researchers in more than 40 specialties.
Founded in 1915 after consultations with physicians at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Mayo Clinic, the Henry Ford Medical Group has established itself as one of the premier group practices in the nation. Our large academic enterprise places us in the top three of traditionally independent group practices through:
- Clinical Care: The breadth and depth of the Henry Ford Medical Group’s clinical services is unparalleled by any other independent academic medical center. Our scale and scope are in the 99th percentile of all group practices, with visit volumes larger than most group practices. We are national leaders in primary care with expertise in preventive care services and the health management of senior citizens. Our specialty Centers of Excellence are national leaders as well, providing advanced tertiary and quaternary care with a focus on discovery and innovation.
- Education: One-third of all physicians in Michigan received training at Henry Ford, and our post-graduate medical education enterprise is among the largest in the country.
- Research: Henry Ford is in the top 6% of National Institutes of Health-funded institutions and in Michigan is exceeded only by the University of Michigan and Wayne State University.
Leaders in Academic Medicine and Clinical Care
The Henry Ford Medical Group is among the best organized in the country. Our self-governed, employed physician practice program has been copied by many others because of our continuing success even through the toughest economic times. The brightest minds in medicine are attracted to become part of the Henry Ford Medical Group because our organization provides physicians the independence to pursue advanced clinical care while undertaking research as well as academic educational initiatives.
For nearly 100 years now the Henry Ford Medical Group has fostered advancement in patient care, research, and education while encouraging innovation in technology and patient care processes both in the outpatient and hospital settings. For these reasons Henry Ford Medical Group physicians are consistently selected by their physician peers as “top doctors” in various local and national published surveys and to lead national and state medical associations. Henry Ford Medical Group physicians work together in leadership and as everyday partners to continue to bring the best possible care to every patient we serve.
