John D. Dingell VA Medical Center, Detroit, Michigan
The Inpatient Internal Medicine service at the Detroit VA Medical Center consists of 40 Acute Care beds, 9 Step-Down Unit beds and 11 Intensive Care Unit beds. We average more than 100 admissions each week with an average length of stay of 4 days. Patients are admitted from our busy Emergency Department, outpatient clinics, or by transfer from outside facilities. The illnesses and diseases we see are wide-ranging and include diabetes, chronic lung disease, asthma, cancer, heart failure, acute coronary syndromes, pneumonia, HIV disease and AIDS, hypertension, stroke, and sepsis.
We provide care through our hospitalists and nurse practitioners (and their accompanying Wayne State University medical student and resident teams) and by Intensive Care specialists. Consultation service is readily provided for every subspecialty in medicine, such as Infectious Diseases, Cardiology, Oncology, and Pulmonary. This care is available and provided day and night every day of the year. We also have immediate access to specialists in other fields such as Surgery, Geriatrics, Hospice and Palliative Care, and Psychiatry.
Our inpatient Medicine Service is “backed up” with a complete Laboratory service, Radiology (including interventional radiology), Nuclear Medicine, and Pathology Departments. We are especially proud to be a key educational and research hospital affiliated with Wayne State University School of Medicine which is located at the Detroit Medical Center immediately across the street from our facility. As a result, our Veterans receive care from superb physicians and subspecialty fellows who are on the cutting edge of research and medical knowledge.
