DETROIT — U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens, D-Rochester Hills, toured Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital in Commerce Twp. Rep. Stevens met with leadership from the Detroit Medical Center including Group CEO Dr. Anthony Tedeschi and Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital CEO Karima Bentounsi.
“Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital is one of the great assets we have in our region,” said Stevens. “It’s a beautiful campus, accessible and that’s how we want people to think about our hospitals. Everything Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital is doing is an effort to enrich our community.”
