Providing patient-centered, compassionate care in the highest quality for our community.
All patients are provided with equal quality health care services without discrimination:
Pontiac General Hospital is an independent organization continuing to revolutionize its service offerings with a focus on providing cost-effective, high quality care to residents of the greater Pontiac area while, at the same time, intentionally and innovatively developing niche services that fill the gaps that exist for treatment of highly complex patients.
Over the past couple of years, the hospital’s workforce has grown by more than 25 percent and service offerings have expanded to include:
- Intensive Care (ICU)
- Medical Inpatient Services
- Diagnostic Imaging (Radiology services including Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
- Substance Abuse Treatment
- Urgent Care
Pontiac General Hospital stands committed to providing access to all who seek treatment, including the most complex patients and those with little or no insurance. While most hospitals limit Medicaid services to about 20 percent of overall patient mix, nearly half of Pontiac General’s patients are Medicaid eligible.
Each day the executive management team and Pontiac General’s physicians push to make Pontiac General a jewel of southeast Michigan by tackling, in a meaningful way, two of the industry’s most complex challenges – the continuing shortage of emergent behavioral health services and the rampant opioid addiction crises.
Pontiac General has partnered in the development of an advanced opioid detox program that induces withdrawals while patients are sedated. This cutting-edge procedure dramatically reduces the length of treatment and is more successful than traditional methods of opioid detoxification.
Capital Investments Over the past several years, Pontiac General has invested up to $5 million in capital improvements including:
- Updated hospital interior
- Remodeled cafeteria
- New equipment and technology (radiology, surgery and laboratory)
- New heating and cooling (HVAC) system
