Community Hospital in a University Setting
“The best of both worlds” truly describes Highland Hospital. Highland Hospital is a 319-bed hospital with a newly completed $70 million renovation and expansion just completed, providing state-of-the-art facilities for your training. It is tucked into the edge of Highland Park, approximately one mile from the large university hospital, Strong Memorial Hospital. Family Medicine has been an integral part of Highland since the founding of the specialty in 1969.
It is a hospital with a rich history of collaboration, where family physicians, internists, and subspecialists greet each other warmly and curbside consult each other over coffee at Primary Care Grand Rounds every Tuesday morning; where family physician attendings have C-section privileges, attend every resident continuity delivery, and attend on our busy adult medicine inpatient service.
It is a hospital large enough to have excellent services, yet small enough where you get to know all the cardiologists, nephrologists, OB/GYNs, and surgeons, and they get to know you. They become invested in your education, in you personally.
