Detroit Medical Center’s Sinai-Grace Hospital began as the consolidation of two hospitals in 1999. Grace Hospital brings a long history of excellence since opening their doors in 1888. Sinai Hospital was established in 1953, becoming one of the central institutions for the Jewish community and Jewish healthcare professionals. Since their merger, the two hospitals now form the leading community academic hospital in northwest Detroit. Throughout the last ten years, Sinai-Grace has been undergoing significant renovations, tripling the size of their former ER, introducing new family-centered ICUs, and expanding their existing radiology area. This hospital is now the largest of the eight hospitals in the Detroit Medical Center system, having 334 inpatient beds. Annually, more than 200 medical students and resident physicians go through advanced training at Sinai-Grace. U.S. News and World Report includes DMC Sinai-Grace on their list of America’s Top Hospitals.

Detroit is the second-largest metropolitan area in the midwest. Home to three of the biggest auto manufacturers in the US, Detroit is appropriately nicknamed “The Motor City.” The city’s rich, diverse culture, offers a wide variety of art, music, and cuisine. While having experienced a financial crisis in the early 2010s, Detroit has worked hard to reverse negative press and spur renovation and progress, creating numerous volunteer groups and a sense of neighborhood community. As part of the Great Lakes area, summers can be hot, temperatures sometimes exceeding 90 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters are quite cold, not rising above freezing on an average of 44 days. Prospective urbanites will find Detroit a city steeped in history, activities, and adventure.
