Munson Health Care said it’s an honor to be held in such high regard.

The last few years have been pretty difficult, I think, with the pandemic and everything associated with that, and rural health care in general is challenging because of resource limitations,” said Kelly Tomaszewski, president of Munson Health Care Manistee Hospital. “To be able to function well in those challenging circumstances and actually be noted [as] one of the top 100 really does, I think, say that we’re doing the right work and taking care of our communities.”

Corewell Health Big Rapids and Ludington, MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena, Dickinson Hospital in Iron Mountain, and UP Health System - Portage Main Campus in Hancock also made the list.
