Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital

Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital is one hospital with two campuses: Warren (Macomb) and Madison Heights (Oakland). Both campuses are osteopathic teaching hospitals affiliated with Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences

Our 376-bed hospital in Warren has always provided Macomb county residents and local communities with exceptional inpatient and outpatient services. Recently, we opened our newly constructed 3-floor build up, which now allows the hospital to offer patients and families 220 private beds at our Warren campus. This addition, along with other technology upgrades, will help improve the overall patient experience.

Our care teams are committed to providing a detailed treatment plan for your individual situation. Our doctors specialize in a wide range of specialties from heart care to orthopedics and emergency care to behavioral medicine. Our on-campus Webber Cancer Center provides personalized treatment and supportive cancer care.

Our partnership with Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences supports a first-rate residency training program where residents work closely with our doctors to gain real-life experience and prepare for their medical careers. In fact, 15 out of 16 of our American Osteopathic Association residency programs have earned accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We also conduct medical research as part of university-directed programs in family practice, emergency medicine, cardiology, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, urology, and ophthalmology.

The Madison Heights Campus offers a full range of adult medical and surgical services provided by board-certified physicians with a majority having university appointments. We conduct medical research as part of university-directed programs in family practice, emergency medicine, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, urology, ophthalmology and cardiovascular care.

Our Madison Height Campus is a 159-bed acute care, osteopathic teaching hospital. The hospital offers first-rate residency training in emergency medicine and serves as the base hospital for the Madison Heights and Hazel Park fire and EMS personnel. A new pharmacy serves associates and the community. For more information, call 866-501-DOCS (3627).
