"We are well on our way to reaching our goal," says Patricia Warner

The hospitals currently employ about 4,000 people, including 150 newly hired staff. There are also a number of new faculty physicians joining the University of Michigan Medical School that specialize in pregnancy and children's health, thanks to the new $754 million facility.
