“Back to the Future”

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Henry Ford Health System CEO Nancy Schlichting about one of my favorite topics: The History of Henry Ford Hospital and Henry Ford Health System.

As many of you may know, Nancy regularly produces vodcasts for our employees and physicians, discussing with special guests a wide variety of topics related to our System and the health care industry.

In honor of our 100th anniversary this year, Nancy decided to kick off her 2015 vodcast series by going back in time to 1915, when Henry Ford Health System started as Henry Ford Hospital.

In the first of a three-part vodcast, Nancy and I look back to the early 1900s in Detroit, not too long before Henry Ford took over the Detroit General Hospital to support the increasing population in the city of Detroit.

We even talk about Clara Ford’s great influence on her husband Henry’s ideas about health and the approaches that needed to be taken to support the health of individuals in Detroit.

 

Come back next week for the second part of the vodcast, where Nancy and I continue our discussion about Henry Ford Health System’s 100-Year Anniversary.
