Welcoming Baby: Patient Stories

At Henry Ford Health System, we don’t just treat illness or disease. We treat people. Our patients’ lives are touched by the compassion, dedication and expertise of our staff in thousands of different ways every day, whether it’s a lifesaving treatment or simply a reassuring smile and kind word. Every patient’s story is unique. We are grateful for those who allow us to share their stories here:

From Data to Diapers

As a principal performance measurement analyst for the Virtual Prenatal Care program, Daria, learned she was pregnant. “I knew I had to try it. I was part of this project, supporting it, so I wanted to see how it would actually work.”

 

 

The Ultimate Work Life Balance

As a program coordinator for Henry Ford’s Virtual Care services, Taylor welcomed the opportunity to try out virtual care in real life. “It was really nice to have the option of video visits for some of my prenatal checkups. And convenient to not have to go to my doctor's office and miss work or be late for work just to go and have a routine visit.”

Technology Creates Convenient Prenatal Care
