Local Reaction To Cheboygan Memorial Hospital Closure

The closure of Cheboygan Memorial Hospital is expected to leave a big dent in Cheboygan County.

The hospital employed 403 people, making it the largest employer in Cheboygan County.

The chamber of commerce says the job loss will impact businesses of all kinds.

The Mayor says it may also impact the real estate market.

He says a good hospital helps to make a community desirable, especially to retirees.

If anyone leaves the area it may take a while to recover.

We're told the city is working with McLaren Health Care to meet any of their needs as they work to continue healthcare delivery in Cheboygan.
