Pending the removal to a permanent hospital plant and which will be ready for occupancy about January 1, 1917, the present hospital is located on the building formerly erected as a station buy the Detroit United Railway, on Hamilton Avenue.

The number of emergency cases cared for each month average two thousand, or about one hundred a day, the more serious cases being cared for at Hurley Hospital.
