Guys,

I was wondering what happened to the Metropolitan Hospital building and what was its location? When did it close? I was born there so I was just wondering.

Thanks

Metro Hospital closed its Detroit location back in 1986, and was followed closely by its Westland location in 1987. I was a young college student back in those days and I made good money working here. Sometimes I miss that job.

Commodore..It was located at Woodrow Wilson and Tuxedo in Detroit. Very nice and clean. I had surgery their in the late 80's before they closed.

That was Southwest General Hospital, iirc, part of the city-run health department. They also had North Detroit General Hospital on Carpenter between Campau and Conant.
