Support Manistee Hospital

Manistee Hospital in Manistee, MichiganManistee Hospital has served the greater Manistee County region since 1970. This 45-bed hospital is known as an early adopter of emerging diagnostic technology. It was the first hospital in northern Michigan to acquire a 160-slice low dose radiation CT scan and  is among the first to offer advanced breast cancer screenings with 3-D tomography, thanks to previous gifts.

Manistee Emergency Department

Today, the Emergency Department at Manistee Hospital provides care for 15,000 patients per year, nearly double the number since the last renovation in 1991. The good news is we can make our current square footage work. However, it will require a major renovation. Our needs are to:

  1. Improve our existing space for better patient rooms and clinical work-flow areas that current layouts do not provide. The plan is to increase the size and number of rooms, which will eliminate obstacles, allow for critical care and monitoring equipment, and create a more efficient work space. 
  2. Create more privacy for patients and their families. Separated only by a curtain, trauma patients experience the noise and commotion of busy caregivers and other patients. At peak demand times, emergency patients and their families are often overflowing into the hallway of the Emergency Department. The plan is to add glass sliders to the trauma room, helping clinical staff keep their most fragile patients in view, but allow more privacy, reduce noise levels, and eliminate safety issues for staff and patients.
  3. And, improve safety and access into the Emergency Department. There are currently two entrances close to the Emergency Department, only one has a dedicated security guard. To enhance patient and visitor safety, the plan is to consolidate to one single, security-monitored emergency entrance with directional signage, clean lines, noise reduction controls, and soothing colors for a more healing environment. 

The estimated cost of renovating the Manistee Hospital Emergency Department is $2 million. Learn more about the Manistee Hospital Emergency Department Renovation Project and how you can keep health care strong in our community.

  • Gas cards, which allow patients to travel to and from home for medical appointments.
  • Assistance with groceries, medications, rent/mortgage payments, utilities.
