Abstract

The Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) is one of the largest comprehensive, integrated health systems in the United States. Since its foundation in 1915, the system has been regionally rooted in the City of Detroit and the Detroit metropolitan area. Detroit itself faces huge challenges. The decrease of the manufacturing sector caused a large decrease in population and employment. The HFHS serves the city not only as a high-quality healthcare provider, but plays other roles as well. As one of the largest employers, the HFHS has been a stable economic and social factor for many years. Reduced investments in the cityscape and in community health are affecting long-term support in Detroit's future. The social and economic importance of HFHS for the Detroit metropolitan area creates a relationship between the HFHS and the City of Detroit that ensures mutual dependency and cooperation.
