The University of Michigan is home to one of the largest health care complexes in the world. It has been the site of many groundbreaking accomplishments and technological advancements since the Medical School first opened its doors in 1850. The University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) has truly come a long way from existing as a 20-bed hospital in 1869 to a health system with over 1250 beds. Today, UMHS continues to be on the cutting edge of research and patient care with the opening in 2011 of the new C.S. Mott Children's and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital.

The Hospital Maintenance Department supports this effort by maintaining the UMHS's physical environment and providing maintenance services towards the goal of achieving excellence in the delivery of quality healthcare and public service. We serve as a direct resource to the Hospital in provding a safe, functional, supportive, and effective environment for patients, staff members, and individuals who come to our hosptial facilities. This includes not only the main Medical Campus, but many of the UMHS's buildings and clinics throughout the region.
