"Henry Ford Health System: 100 Years Measured in Life" is on display at the museum in the city's Midtown area. The exhibit starts in 1915, with auto pioneer Henry Ford taking control of the stalled 48-bed Detroit General Hospital project that would become Henry Ford Hospital.
The exhibit includes 100 stories of transforming health and life. An event featuring hospital officials and a member of the Ford family takes place Thursday.
Henry Ford Health System, anchored by Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, serves a five-county area and its services and research are known internationally.
