Under the leadership of President and CEO Wright L. Lassiter, III, Henry Ford Health System is a $6 billion integrated health system comprised of six hospitals, a health plan, and 250+ sites including medical centers, walk-in and urgent care clinics, pharmacy, eye care facilities and other healthcare retail. Established in 1915 by auto industry pioneer Henry Ford, the health system now has 32,000 employees and remains home to the 1,900-member Henry Ford Medical Group, one of the nation’s oldest physician groups. An additional 2,200 physicians are also affiliated with the health system through the Henry Ford Physician Network. Henry Ford is also one of the region’s major academic medical centers, receiving between $90-$100 million in annual research funding and remaining Michigan’s fourth largest NIH-funded institution. Also, an active participant in medical education and training, the health system has trained nearly 40% of physicians currently practicing in the state and provides education and training for other health professionals including nurses, pharmacists, radiology, and respiratory technicians.


As a teaching hospital, Henry Ford Allegiance Health continually looks to the future with its Center for Health Innovation & Education and Graduate Medical Education program. Through its Health Improvement Organization (HIO), HFAH is also a national leader in forming community partnerships that innovatively address wellness and prevention needs across the region. In 2013 when we developed a “community based GME Residency program” and today we have 115 residents on site; specializing in General Surgery (3-new residents a year), Internal Medicine (7), Family Medicine (8), Emergency Medicine (8-10), Psych (4) and Traditional Year. We are a dual accredited program.

This partnership has been very exciting for Henry Ford Allegiance Health and the Jackson community. Henry Ford Health System has offered a wealth of growth opportunity; we constructed a innovation center (adding State of Art Simulation & Research Labs / May 2017), a Surgical Patient wing that added 66 private rooms Fall 2018, and we have implemented EPIC house wide (INPT & OUTPT) in 2016. Our Emergency room treats over 67,000+ visits annually and over 13,000 ambulance visits. We have a Medical ICU, Surgical ICU, CUB (Cardiac Universal Bed), Radiation Oncology, Hematology/Oncology, Full Service line of Fellowship Trained Ortho (total joint, hand/wrist, foot/ankle, sports, podiatry and Traumatologist), Physiatry (PM&R), Neurology and Neurosurgery Service Lines, OT/PT, Certified Stroke Center, Interventional Radiology, two full time inpatient Physiatry (PM&R) and two full outpatient physiatrist, and Plastics.

We are honored to report that Henry Ford Allegiance Health received an A rating (along with all hospitals within Henry Ford Health System). This ranks us among the safest hospitals in the United States. We are not your average “community hospital.” We are the hidden gem of Jackson and the only hospital in Jackson County, with the next smaller hospital being 20 miles north. We became a certified Trauma center in Spring 2017, and are the only Level II trauma within a 40-mile radius between 94 and 127 HWY. On April 6, 2015 we went live activating Trauma calls, with 24/7 coverage provided in-house coverage with a physician and advanced practice professional.
