Comparing Detroit to DC is like comparing Sudan to Canada!
I don't know the specific location of Henry ford but Detroit is ghetto. I will choose a community program in DC over a big Uni. Program in Detroit

Is this really how you approach that decision. From what I know it's pretty common for good programs to be in 'problematic' areas, e.g. what would you call Johns Hopkins in Baltimore? Also bear in mind that you will spend almost all your time inside the hospital?! So I would certainly consider the location but not make it a main criteria

Full disclosure: I don't know anything about Hospital Center or Henry Ford

You are absolutely right....I stand corrected but I personally hate Detroit because of it's squalor & heavy crime rate.
