McLaren Health Working to Help Cheboygan Patients

Cheboygan County is officially without a hospital today.

Plans are already underway to continue healthcare delivery in the area, just in a different way.

With the closure of Cheboygan Memorial Hospital yesterday in Cheboygan, around 400 people lost their jobs.

A representative from McLaren Health Care says 55 of those people are now employed through McLaren.

McLaren is working to reopen doctors' offices previously run through Cheboygan Memorial Hospital.

This could happen as early as Monday, though all the details are still being worked out.

Certain emergency, surgical and diagnostic services will still not be available.

For referral information, you call the Physician Referral Line at McLaren-Northern Michigan in Petoskey at 877.568.5598.
