Henry Ford Medical Group
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.
A heritage of excellence
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. For more than 100 years, the Henry Ford Medical Group has fostered innovation and advancement in patient care, education and research while encouraging improvement in technology and patient care processes. The Henry Ford Medical Group has established itself as a leader in healthcare by excelling in three key areas:
- Clinical care: Ranked in the 99th percentile of all group practices.
- Education: We are one of the largest post-graduate medical education enterprises in the country -- one-third of all physicians in Michigan receive training at Henry Ford.
- Research: We are in the top 6 percent of National Institutes of Health-funded institutions.
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. We also work to educate our community through our Emmy Award–winning TV show, Minds of Medicine.
Minds of Medicine in Action
The Henry Ford Medical Group has developed a new online tool called “Minds of Medicine in Action”, an educational resource for physicians. This portal features the latest research and innovations in many patient care areas including Heart & Vascular, Cancer, Transplant, and Neurology & Neurosurgery. The nationally recognized Henry Ford Medical Group physicians, surgeons, and researchers have created this comprehensive physician resource portal to share their work and innovations in patient care with peers.
