Groundbreaking began in 1953 for "Oakland Hospital," but because of a delivery mix-up and to further distinguish itself from nearby Oakwood Hospital it was decided to change the name of the new hospital. The new name was William Beaumont Hospital (WBH), the doors were officially open on January 24, 1955 with 238-beds in Royal Oak, Michigan in 1955. The hospitals, the overall health system and the school of medicine are all named for William Beaumont, a U.S. Army surgeon who became known as the "Father of Gastric Physiology" following his research on human digestion started at Fort Mackinac on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
In 1965, Botsford General Hospital opened with 200 beds adjacent to the historic Botsford Inn, a former stagecoach stop on Grand River in Farmington Hills. The hospital opened as an expansion to Zieger Clinic Hospital in Detroit, opened by Dr. Allen Zieger in 1944.
Oakwood Hospital opened on Jan. 5, 1953 and grew to include four hospitals and ambulatory centers in and around Dearborn.
The decision to build a "voluntary" hospital on land donated by Henry Ford II and Ford Motor Company was controversial at the time, as Dearborn mayor Orville L. Hubbard supported a competing proposal for a municipal facility. After months of contentious debate, the voluntary hospital plan was approved, with the ground-breaking taking place in August 1950.
In March 2014, the Beaumont Health System, along with Botsford Health Care and Oakwood Healthcare, signed a letter of intent to merge their operations.
