A Special Message from Dr. Safwan Badr, M.D. to the Doctors of the DMC
The Detroit Medical Center would like to take this time to express our great appreciation, on behalf of our employees, patients and community.
Thank you for your dedication and determination to continue to provide quality healthcare to our community. Thank you for entrusting us with your patient's care. Thank you for helping create some of America's best hospitals.
Thanks to you, DMC has had an exceptional year. With your dedication, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital and DMC Harper University Hospital met the stringent standards of the Leapfrog Group and have received honors as top hospitals in the nation for quality and safety.
With your skill, DMC has three hospitals -- DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan, DMC Harper University Hospital, and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital -- ranked among the nation's best in multiple specialties by U.S. News & World Report.
With your collaboration, DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital and DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital have received American Nurses Credentialing Center MAGNET Recognition for nursing excellence, and our other hospitals are currently on the path to be recognized, as well.
And thanks to your willingness to embrace Electronic Medical Records in the name of patient safety, for the third consecutive year, DMC has been named to the nation's MOST WIRED list, according to the results of the 2009 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
You are a pivotal and critical point to our health system. Your work today provides us with a solid foundation to forge the future of healthcare, and get down to the work of creating it.
At the DMC, you can be assured we will provide your patients exceptional care and service. Your patients will always be cared for graciously and professionally. If there is anything we can do to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
