Henry Ford Hospital, located at what was then the edge of the city of Detroit at Hamilton and West Grand Boulevards, opened its doors to patients in October 1915. A Private Patient Building accommodated 48 patients, and several other small buildings housed the surgical pavilion, research quarters, kitchens and laundry facilities, the power plant, and garage.

Within two years, construction of a larger building began on the same 20-acre site. The shell of this incomplete building was turned over to the federal government in 1918 for use as U.S. Army General Hospital No. 36, which provided care for returning veterans of World War I while the Henry Ford Hospital staff were away in military service. After the war, the 50,000 square foot building was completed, opening in 1921 and providing 500 new beds for the growing Detroit community.

Today, Henry Ford Health System operates nearly 30 medical centers in the Detroit suburbs and seven hospitals. A new $360 million, 300-bed hospital is under construction in West Bloomfield, MI.
