DETROIT – Henry Ford Hospital has been named as one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America” by Becker's Hospital Review.

It is the only Detroit hospital on the list.

“As a regional referral hospital and a national destination hospital, Henry Ford has always been known for its research, innovation and patient care,” says John Popovich Jr., M.D., president and CEO of the hospital. “This honor recognizes the superior efforts of all our team members.”
