Henry Ford Health continues to expand the clinical services it offers patients. Organ donation, the Structural Heart Program, and addiction recovery are three diverse areas that have experienced significant growth.

Center Dedicated to Care of Living Organ Donors

Part of the Henry Ford Transplant Institute, the Henry Ford Center for Living Donation launched in April 2018 and is the first known center of its kind in the country. The Center’s focus is on living kidney and living liver donors and their physical, psychological, emotional and financial needs. With the latest advances in transplant technology and techniques, the Center is a hub for ground-breaking research and advances in living donation. Learn More

Maplegrove Makes Changes to Improve Addiction Recovery

As a result of recent renovations and holistic treatment therapies, more residential patients at Henry Ford Maplegrove Center are completing treatment programs. Length of stay post-renovation has increased by 30 percent. A longer stay leads to greater success for addiction recovery patients. All key clinical staff were trained in dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) treatment. DBT focuses on identifying and changing negative thinking patterns and encouraging positive behavioral change. This helps individuals overcome reliance on substances by better managing their behaviors, emotions and thoughts. In 2018, renovations created 20 private rooms and modernized gathering spaces, making Maplegrove more comfortable for longer stays. A new garden and labyrinth allow space for reflection, journaling and meditation. Learn More
