Making a Difference in Our Community

Our Purpose

Michigan Medicine is committed to excellence not only within the exam room and the operating room, but also within the communities we serve. We recognize that healthy patients start with healthy communities, and we are dedicated to understanding the health of our community and working to address the community's health needs.

Caring for Everyone

As a world-class academic medical center, we treat and care for everyone, including those who have barriers to accessing healthcare, and we create and participate in outreach programs and services designed to improve health and help the entire community, including those who may never be U-M Health patients.
