Advanced Medical Technology
DMC is the only system in the state with a fully-implemented Electronic Medical Record. This, combined with our investment in leading-edge technology, such as 64-slice imaging, a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, and the da Vinci robotic surgery system (in three DMC locations) make DMC one of the most technically advanced systems in the nation. This is reflected in our high volume of surgery – 60,000 surgical cases per year are performed at DMC hospitals.
Patient Complexity and Diversity
The DMC patient population is unmatched in complexity and diversity. Our unique position as the leading source of specialty medicine in southeast Michigan draws patients from every socioeconomic and demographic category. No other system can provide the depth and diversity of patient population found at DMC. DMC continues to meet the healthcare needs of a growing community, offering the best in medical research and development, advanced technology and optimum clinical services.
DMC’s recent partnership with Vanguard has resulted in an $850 million investment in infrastructure and buildings in Detroit – the single largest private investment in the city’s history. In the next five years, students at DMC will see the dramatic change, from basic structural upgrades to the construction of entirely new specialty care hospitals within midtown Detroit.
