Scott Henry, M.D., PhD, has joined the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) as director of cardiovascular surgery care uniformity. In this role, he will work to ensure the clinical outcomes and quality metrics of the DMC CVI cardiovascular surgery services not only meet, but exceed, those standards set forth by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS).
“I’m very impressed with the development of Cardio Team One and the DMC Heart Hospital opening this summer,” Dr. Henry said. “I think this demonstrates the great commitment the Detroit Medical Center has made to the community to provide 24/7 cardiac care, state-of-the-art treatment and a focus on cutting-edge research. It definitely mirrors my commitment to my patients and this community.”
“Dr. Henry is an excellent addition to CVI and the DMC,” said Dr. Schreiber, president of the DMC Cardiovascular Institute and the new DMC Heart Hospital opening in August. “He brings with him extensive experience and a successful track record of moving local programs up in quality and safety standards. I expect he will do the same for DMC.”
A regular, award-winning presenter and author on leading industry research, Dr. Henry is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the Michigan State Medical Society and the Detroit Surgical Association. He is a diplomat on the National Board of Medical Examiners, Certified Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) instructor and licensed to practice medicine in both Kentucky and Michigan.
Prior to joining the DMC, Dr. Henry served as an attending cardiothoracic surgeon at St. Joseph Medical Center in Reading, Pa. and a senior staff physician in the cardiac surgery division of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He’s also a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserve.
Dr. Henry received his Bachelor’s from Indiana University and attended Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He did his residency and National Institute of Health (NIH) fellowships at Wayne State University School of Medicine before becoming an administrative chief resident. He also completed a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at the University of Louisville School of Medicine.
