Michigan Healthcare Systems Issue Joint Statement on COVID-19 Policies

The Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA) has released a joint statement by physician leaders of hospitals and healthcare systems throughout Michigan. The letter includes 28 signatures that represent 110 of Michigan’s 137 hospitals, including Munson Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Christine Nefcy. The statement makes it clear that, regardless of state law, executive orders or local public health directives, hospitals and healthcare systems across the state are standing as a united front in our policies and interventions that will help fight the spread of COVID-19. It also emphasizes that the recent jump in COVID-19 cases across Michigan puts our entire healthcare system at risk of another capacity crisis and asks the public to join us in taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of this deadly disease.

Munson Healthcare COVID-19 Tracker

At the onset of the pandemic, Munson Healthcare reported information specific to patients tested or treated at a Munson Healthcare facility. Now that testing is more widely available throughout northern Michigan, we have updated our report to reflect the same data reported by the State of Michigan. The data below summarizes COVID-19 testing and cases across all of northern Michigan.

We hope this information will be helpful to you in understanding the impact of this pandemic on our region. New data is published Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.

Please note that local health departments report COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths based on an individual’s county of residence, not where an individual may have been treated. Not all confirmed cases or deaths occurred at a Munson Healthcare facility.

Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in northern Michigan.
