Single Accreditation and Education

Garden City Hospital is proud to announce that is has achieved ACGME Initial Accreditation as a teaching institution. In addition, the hospital has been awarded pre-accreditation status for the following three programs: Internal Medicine, General Surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery. We are currently in the process of preparing ACGME applications for the Emergency Medicine Residency, Neurology and OB/GYN programs as part of the Single Accreditation System. At the beginning of 2017, we will be preparing applications for the Cardiology fellowship and Family Medicine Residency programs.


Garden City Hospital began as the vision of six local physicians in 1947. These physicians were committed to providing high quality healthcare locally. Originally, the hospital was named Garden City Maternity Hospital. Then, the hospital purchased Leland Sanitarium (renamed Ridgewood Hospital) in Ypsilanti and broke ground in 1959 on the current facility, located on Inkster Road in Garden City. The doors opened in August 1960 and grew to what it is today, a state-of-the-art medical facility with over 300 licensed beds. In July 2014, GCH joined Prime Healthcare Services; a leading quality hospital system which delivers high quality healthcare and contributes daily to the local community. GCH has an award winning staff of over 350 of the area's best and brightest physicians from almost every specialty.
