Ascension Crittenton

Crittenton Hospital and Medical Center, 1101 W. University Drive, in Rochester, has been renamed Ascension Crittenton Hospital following the acquisition of the hospital in 2015 by Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the United States and the world’s largest Catholic health system. The renaming is the first of several hospitals in the metro Detroit area that will carry the Ascension name, including St. John Providence and others throughout the state. The name change comes while the hospital celebrates its 50th anniversary. On August 1967, Crittenton treated its first patients. Ascension Crittenton Hospital now has a medical staff of nearly 500 physicians, representing a wide range of medical specialities, including primary, secondary and tertiary-level care.
