Beaumont celebrates 60 years of caring for our community


This week, Beaumont Health System is celebrating its 60th birthday. On Jan. 24, 1955, 238-bed William Beaumont Hospital opened its doors on 113 acres of donated farmland, and adjacent land from an undeveloped subdivision, at 13 Mile and Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak.


The vision of Beaumont’s founders was extraordinary: to establish a private practice, not-for-profit medical center that would deliver high quality care, always focused on the patient, with an eye to teaching and research, and supported by community philanthropy.

To help area residents identify flu symptoms and select a treatment option, Beaumont has launched a free, community Flu Hotline - 888-375-4161.


Flu season is here and Beaumont doctors say it’s already one of the most intense flu seasons in recent history. As a result, visitor restrictions are now in place for Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Beaumont Hospital, Troy and Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe. For the safety of our patients and staff: People with flu‐like symptoms and children under 13 years of age may not visit patients in the hospital. We apologize for the inconvenience. Flu‐like symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, muscle aches, chills, fatigue.


Beaumont, Botsford and Oakwood have completed their affiliation agreement to combine operations as a new organization called Beaumont Health. Learn more about Beaumont Health and the three founding organizations, including:

  • new CEO, John Fox

  • executive team
