A Letter From Our President and CEO

A Letter From Our President and CEO

Paula Autry, President and CEO, Henry Ford Allegiance Health

This letter comes to you at a time of disruption, fear and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak.

I want to take this opportunity to assure you that our commitment to lead our community to better health and well-being has never been stronger. It is our privilege to provide you—our family, friends and neighbors—with the safest possible, compassionate care whenever you need us. We are here for you.

It was Henry Ford Health System’s deep commitment to bringing resources and increased access to top-of-the-line technology and treatment to communities that first drew me to the organization. Every improvement we make is an investment in the well-being of the communities we serve and a demonstration of how much we care about our neighbors. Each plan we make for Henry Ford Allegiance Health’s second century of caring is an expression of our commitment to our future together.

The better I get to know Henry Ford Allegiance Health and my new community, the more enthusiastic I become about the work we are doing together. I’m filled with gratitude to be a part of such a mission-driven organization, and a community filled with promise and opportunities.

Our 2019 Report to the Community highlights some of ways we are connecting with our community, improving access to care and using innovative technology to transform lives. You’ll also find stories of community members whose health has improved as a result. I hope you will find it inspiring.

Most of all, please take care, and remember, we are here for you whenever you need us. 

Yours in service,

Paula Autry
