Caring for complex patients

Patients coming to WSUPG will receive a high-level of medical care from a range of primary care and specialists. The WSUPG culture promotes continuous learning which enables physicians and staff to offer the latest medical advances.   

WSUPG physicians specialize in the care of patients with the most complex medical conditions, especially those from vulnerable populations, who face health disparities related to a lack of resources and greater exposure to risk from their financial circumstances, place of residence, age or other personal characteristics.

Under an agreement with the Detroit Medical Center, WSUPG physicians provide clinical care for adult patients in select specialties and fill select medical leadership roles for DMC hospitals and affiliated outpatient facilities.
