Munson Health


Welcome to nursing at Munson Medical Center where nurses are respected as an integral part of the care team. Nurses have a voice in clinical care and professional nursing practice is emphasized. Excellent nurse-to-patient ratios allow for the provision of high-quality care in a variety of clinical settings. “Ultimately my patients come first. Our nurse-patient ratios are something to be proud of. I like the amount of time we get to spend with patients. I love taking a few minutes to sit down and talk with them.” Lindsey Mack, BSN, RN
Barcode medication administration, physician order entry, and electronic charting comprise the technology in use today. Hourly rounding is practiced by nursing to improve the safety and satisfaction of patients.  
Munson Medical Center is the largest hospital in northern Michigan, with 391 inpatient beds and more than 420 physicians representing 55 specialties. Munson Medical Center received the Magnet Recognition Award for Nursing Excellence in 2006. It was the second hospital in Michigan to achieve Magnet status, the highest nursing achievement award given by the American Nurses Association and American Nurses Credentialing Center. Today, only 7 percent of hospitals in the nation have earned Magnet status.
 Munson offers opportunities for professional growth, continuing education, and training on progressive technology. On top of all that, Traverse City is a great place to live and raise your family.
