DMC Heart Hospital - Opening August
The Beat Goes On:
The future of Heart Care
in the Midwest
This summer, the new heart of Detroit will be unveiled: the new DMC Heart Hospital. This completely new structure will be home to DMC Cardiovascular Institute, as well Cardio Team One. As Michigan’s first and only heart hospital, DMC Heart Hospital will change the way cardiac care is delivered. Unlike other hospitals and institutions, DMC Heart Hospital will be a unique collaboration of specialists. Cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons and Vascular Surgeons will all work together, in a single place with a single goal: To provide extraordinary, immediate care to patients suffering from all forms of heart disease and vascular disease.
That’s why DMC is building the DMC Heart Hospital, right here, in the heart of Detroit, the city we’ve served for a century and a half. In 1863, DMC was here, providing care to the new heart of industrial America. A century later, the world’s first mechanical heart was built, tested and launched here. And in 2014, the new DMC Heart Hospital will open a new era, dedicated to keeping the heart of Detroit as strong as ever. The DMC Heart Hospital: the building may be new, but when it comes to cardiac care, DMC is always there.
