I spend a fair amount of time going “South of the Border,” talking to hospital and academic leaders, physicians and others about Henry Ford Hospital – the great doctors, nurses and programs of the Flagship.
We are very respectful of the Canadian health care system and the great care it provides. When alternatives cannot be provided from Canadian resources, Henry Ford Hospital is there to provide the best of care to the sickest of patients.
As such, we provide clinical support for this extraordinary patient care, at the request of the doctors and providers in Windsor and Essex County, whenever it is needed.
Most notable of this clinical support is the work that we have done in cardiovascular disease, especially in acute myocardial infarction.
To our cardiovascular surgical team, the surgeons, the anethesiologists, the nurses, and the technicians: This story is better than winning the Stanley Cup.
Of note, this patient was transferred to Henry Ford at a time when we recorded the highest number of admissions in our history, when the Emergency Department was backed up to record levels.
It is the reason we all go the extra mile, to be there for patient who needs us and our skills.
It is the responsibility that we hold for being the great hospital that we are.
And it shows who we are and what we do.
We are very proud of all of you.
