With the changing landscape of healthcare in the state, one thing has been constant for the last 100 years, the hospital in Charlevoix.
Wednesday, the hospital celebrated its 100th birthday.
All year, Munson Charlevoix will your the century mark but today the employees enjoyed cake and chicken cooked by the local Lions Club.
As some small town hospitals are downsizing, Charlevoix is proud to have a full service hospital available year round and now for 100 years.
“I think the key to lasting 100 years is the people,” says hospital president Joanne Schroeder, “The people here are our biggest asset and they always will be. They are the backbone of this hospital and they take a lot of pride in our patient experience, providing high quality care.”
The hospital says it has also succeeded thanks to the support from the community for the past century.
