Sketch: In 2009 and 2011, McLaren Central Michigan was named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals by Thomson Reuters. The nonprofit hospital was chosen for the honor among nearly 3,000 hospitals in the U.S. Recently, it unveiled a new, ultra-short open bore MRI which provides more precise diagnoses and timelier, more accurate treatment decisions between doctors and patients with a larger opening and much less noise. The hospital is a subsidiary of McLaren Health Care Corporation, which includes 11 hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, Michigan's only proton therapy center, an employed primary care physician network, commercial and Medicaid HMOs, home health care and hospice, medical equipment, retail pharmacy services and a fully-owned malpractice insurance company. McLaren Health Care recently partnered with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, one of only two National Cancer Institute designated centers in the state, to create the largest cancer research and provider network in Michigan. McLaren Central Michigan will play an instrumental role in this new partnership. McLaren Central Michigan originally opened in 1943 with 60 patient beds and 25 members on the medical staff.
