Where we’ve been, how far we’ve come

History in the Making

In 1969, the $9.1 million Mott Hospital opened, mostly due to the help of the Flint-based Mott Foundation. More than four decades later, we opened the new $754 million, 1.1 million square feet C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital that boasts a 12-story inpatient wing, 9-story outpatient wing, 348 beds, including 50 private maternity rooms and 46 private NICU rooms.

    This was a wonderful inclusion into Top Stories. We all know the greatness of the strides our medical center has made but to see the pictures makes it so much more evident. I’ve been employed here since 1974 so all of these pictures/captions are so meaningful and evoke many memories. Thanks for sharing this treasure – a very appropriate word.

    Fantastic site! so glad it has been developed so as to share the rich history of University of Michigan Health Care System. I hope more is put on line from the Hospital Star collection at the Taubman library.
    Thanks so much.
