Visitor Information

  • Select Specialty Hospital Downriver combines the specialized expertise of a large hospital with the personalized attention of a smaller setting. Occasionally, patients in the hospital have a need for a longer acute care stay due to their illness, multiple injuries, trauma, or medical complications. The unique medical needs of these types of patients require more intensive, focused hospital care for optimal recovery. Select Specialty Hospitals are designed specifically to meet the needs of these types of extended acute care patients.

    Located along the beautiful waterfront in downtown Wyandotte, Select Specialty Hospital Downriver has many amenities to offer to visiting families. There are many dining and shopping options located within a mile of the hospital, as well as beautiful Bishop Park with walking paths to enjoy gorgoeous views of the Detroit River and Canadian shoreline.

    SSH-Downriver will again be participating in the American Lung Association Run/Walk held in the Fall of 2014 on Belle Isle, MI.  Our efforts in 2012 and 2013 raised over one thousand dollars to help the cause!
