Community

Connected to the community that lives in our hearts.

RiverwalkersMore than 11,000 Detroit Medical Center employees call the Detroit metropolitan area home. Their contributions to our local and regional economies continue to play a key role in Detroit’s renewal. In the last four years, DMC has completed more than $850 million in new hospital construction, expansion and renovation to benefit patients, families and staff. On the Midtown campus, in addition to the Heart Hospital, patients, visitors and families are already finding new comfort and convenience in the ongoing beautiful transformation of the Harper/Hutzel Hospitals entrance, lobby, patient registration and pharmacy areas. The breathtaking new Children’s Hospital of Michigan Specialty Tower has taken shape and will house the latest in pediatric critical care. DMC’s care for patients and families extends beyond the walls of its eight hospitals and institutes and 80-plus outpatient facilities. Our community involvement ranges from wellness and health education to programs for youth, seniors and families in need.

DMC is proudly partnered with the Detroit Police Athletic League (Detroit PAL) in its efforts to build character in youth through sports and mentoring. Every Tuesday and Thursday, from June through August, you can find more than 2,000 seniors on the Detroit Riverfront, for the DMC’s RiverWalkers program. This initiative gives seniors a safe, outdoor atmosphere where they can exercise, socialize and gain valuable health information. Our more than 3,000 nurses and affiliated physicians are the heart of our commitment to compassionate care for the community we love.
