About Pontiac General Hospital
The site currently occupied by Pontiac General Hospital has been home to a healthcare facility since the original founding of Oakland County Hospital in 1910. The organization and edifice were renamed Pontiac City Hospital in 1915, then renamed again in 1931 with the addition of a new patient wing, this time becoming Pontiac General Hospital.
In 1969, Pontiac General became the first hospital in the nation to dedicate a staff solely to emergency medicine. In 1994 the hospital was renamed North Oakland Medical Center, and in 2008 became Doctor’s Hospital of Michigan, the state’s first full-service acute care facility owned by physicians. The shift back to Pontiac General returns the hospital to the name by which it has been known for the majority of its life.
