Marlette Regional Hospital

President and CEO:
Daniel Babcock

HCECM Board: Chair

 

Location: 2770 Main Street, Marlette, Michigan 48453

County: Sanilac

Facility Description: 25 Inpatient Acute Care Beds, 39 Long-term Care Beds, 6 Inpatient Hospice Beds

Type: Critical Access Hospital, Long-term Care

Community Impact: Employs 430. Serves over 50,000 patients each year.

Sketch: Marlette Regional Hospital opened in 1951 with 22 beds. Since then, MRH has grown and expanded its services to match the growth and needs of the communities it serves. Over the years, MRH has accumulated many "firsts." The Marlette Amendment to the federal Hill Burton Act permitted federal grant dollars to be awarded to non-county-seat communities for the construction of hospitals. This amendment directly facilitated the construction of many more hospitals across the country. MRH's extended care facility opened on Dec. 1, 1964, and was the first hospital-attached long-term care facility in Michigan. It is now a 43-bed, skilled nursing facility--the highest level of licensure possible for a nursing home. Its staff continues to earn exceptional recognition from the Michigan Department of Community Health. When the Hannah D. Wolfe Retirement Residence opened in 1969, it was the region's first hospital-owned retirement residence for independent seniors. More than 40 years later, it continues to serve as a valuable resource for independent senior accommodations.

The 1980s saw the hospital's innovative development of medical practices in surrounding communities--now an integrated network of primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Today, MRH has thriving medical practices in five communities, serving three counties. Its United Hospice Service began its mission in 1983--the first hospice service in the region. Today, with the addition of a beautiful and recently remodeled Hospice Residence, MRH's United Hospice Service is the oldest and largest hospice in the area, offering hope and inspiration to families.

In 1993, the hospital constructed a new emergency department, a lab and radiology facilities after a successful community fund drive. The hospital's emergency department remains one of the busiest in the Thumb and, because of the generous availability of skilled staff and technology, completely cares for more than 96 percent of its patients without having to transfer them to another hospital. In 1995, MRH opened the region's first and only inpatient center for intensive rehabilitation, offering a spectrum of diagnostic, medical and therapy services designed for patients with neurological, orthopedic and degenerative conditions.

MRH forged an innovative relationship with St. Mary's of Michigan in 2002 to bring cancer treatment expertise to the area. The Seton Cancer Institute at MRH offers radiation therapy and chemotherapy services, providing local cancer patients convenience and leading-edge treatment technology in the same location. However, it's important while recounting its history to acknowledge the appreciation for what happened before the hospital opened. Seven years earlier, a group of civic-minded people believed that Marlette deserved a hospital. After the opening dedication more than 50 years ago, some of these volunteers remained associated with the hospital. Some quietly resumed their private lives. But all set an example of the dedication, stewardship, philanthropy and community service that are still vital and modeled by its employees and medical staff today.

MRH is committed to providing cutting-edge technologies, equipment and quality service to its patients. It also strives to be an employer of choice in the Thumb region. Employing over 430 people, MRH is directed by sound business practices and evidences a genuine commitment to continuous improvement. In 2013, MRH finalized an affiliation agreement with McKenzie Health System which started as a general partnership to share equipment and materials in 2010. The affiliation will provide patients with access to more services, medical staff and resources held by the two hospitals.
