Core Services at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital

Healthcare has never been simple, but the COVID-19 pandemic has driven us to go beyond what we ever thought was possible and has pushed Munson Healthcare to remodel the way we provide care for patients, while keeping staff protected in their new work environments.

Although it is uncertain what the future may bring, we know by maintaining and strengthening core services at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital, we are securing healthcare for future generations to come. Our primary focus is, and will always be, your health, safety, and well-being.

Emergency Services

Within the last year alone, Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital administered emergency care for life-threatening illnesses and injuries with over 4,500 visits to the Emergency Department. As the entry point for a hospital’s response to many types of crisis scenarios, emergency departments must be designed with the flexibility to respond to a wide variety of interminable ailments, including pandemic scenarios. Together, we are committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure our Emergency Department remains strong by supporting clinical education, making needed equipment upgrades, and expanding emergency services at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital.

Long-term Care at the Paul Oliver Living and Rehabilitation Center

Paul Oliver Living and Rehabilitation Center in Frankfort promotes a sense of well-being, healing, and peace in a beautiful hilltop setting overlooking Lake Michigan. It has been awarded a Five Star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid for meeting overall high quality standards. 

Caring for a loved one with serious medical conditions at home can be rewarding, but it can also be exhausting—both physically and emotionally—for family members and primary caregivers. Munson Healthcare’s long-term care fulfills the physical, emotional, and social needs of our residents, and provides compassionate care with day to day needs. Since our long-term care facility is located on our hospital’s campus, residents have access to clinical providers and emergency medical care around-the-clock. In addition to medical care, we provide a full range of services to help you or your loved one with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, eating, and more. Our compassionate staff help residents cultivate independence and maintain physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

The total cost for these critical innovations at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital is $450,000.
