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.
