Support Grayling Hospital

Grayling HospitalRural & Community Top Hospital 2017Grayling Hospital has provided high quality health care to Crawford, Roscommon, and Oscoda counties since 1911. This 71-bed community hospital was named one of the best rural hospitals in Michigan in 2017. It offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services and is continuously expanding and evolving to meet the needs of its growing community.

Crawford Continuing Care Center

From the moment you walk in the door at Crawford Continuing Care Center, you'll notice the caring individuals and smiling faces - and, you may even recognize a familiar face of a friend or neighbor. The Crawford Continuing Care Center is a 39-bed, long-term care facility that also offers short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing care. Of the 39 beds, about 15 are used for short-term rehab, while the rest are used by residents who call the Center their home. 

The staff at Crawford Continuing Care Center strive to create a loving, caring and nurturing environment for everyone who walks through the doors. This year year they continue to focus on creating a safe and nurturing outdoor space for residents who live and recover here. The new patio area will include a covered pavilion to help shade residents and allow for them to enjoy our northern Michigan summers. Additionally, this space will include a walking path for rehabilitation, physical therapy and wheelchair accessible picnic tables. 

In order to continue providing high-level care and a comfortable home for residents, we need generous partners who understand the importance of maintaining a high quality long-term care facility in the Grayling community.


The Innovation Fund was established at Munson Healthcare Foundations to enable hospital leadership to respond quickly to opportunities to improve patient health by changing the way care is delivered. Recruitment of new medical specialists to our communities may require a new forward thinking program, game-changing equipment, or cutting-edge technology that alters the way health care is delivered and ultimately improves patient care.

As a result of growth in patient testing and diagnostics through the services of Traverse Heart and Vascular, Munson Healthcare Grayling Hospital is currently in need of assistance for the following innovations

  • GE CASE Premium Stress System and T2100 Treadmill is a stand-alone, highly scalable exercise testing solution that helps physicians quickly and easily assess cardiac function during exercise. The cost of the GE CASE Premium Stress System and T2100 Treadmill is $61,780.
  • In order to meet the goal of standardization throughout the entire Munson Healthcare system, Grayling Hospital is in need of a new Automated Hematology Analyzer, which will provide a whole new approach to blood analysis automation by offering higher capacity solutions that are both scalable and configurable. The cost for the Sysmex Hematology Analyzer System is $166,370.

Patient Needs

The Patient Needs Fund provides financial assistance for the urgent needs of patients during a health-related crisis.

  • Gas cards, which allow patients to travel to and from home for medical appointments.
