MidMichigan Medical Center - Alpena


A 139 licensed-bed hospital located in northeast Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron, Alpena's first community hospital opened in 1915 as the Donald McRae Hospital. It served until 1939, when a petition was passed to build a new public hospital. On April 16, 1940, a new 88-licensed bed hospital opened called Alpena General Hospital. On April 1, 2016, Alpena Regional Medical Center joined MidMichigan Health, making it the fifth Medical Center in the MidMichigan Health system. To reflect the hospital joining MidMichigan, the Medical Center changed its name to MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena. Accredited by The Joint Commission, the Medical Center has approximately 1,000 employees, 200 volunteers and about 100 physicians. In 2017, the Medical Center in Alpena was recognized as a Top Rural Community Hospital by the National Rural Health Association, was named to the Becker's Hospital Review 2017 list of 100 Great Community Hospitals, and received Michigan’s Quality Improvement Organization (MPRO) 2017 Governor’s Award of Excellence for outstanding achievement in effective reporting and measurement in the hospital value-based purchasing acute care hospital setting.
