From the admission process and the initial tour with the administrator, everyone was very gracious with us and helped us understand what to expect and really helped ease our fears with this difficult decision. Throughout Tom's stay, as the challenges came, everyone was great at giving us the appropriate information to both to help guide us and help us not miss any opportunity to care for my husband. The care he received was exceptional. The C.N.A's and nurses were sincere and personal and everything they did for Tom and our family was above and beyond what we had expected. As Tom drew closer to passing, staff were considerate of noise, environment, appropriate in their approach, and very gentle and caring, making this difficult time into a beautiful moment. We went into the process with such an expectation of difficulty, but after Tom passed and we left, we found ourselves missing the staff and residents as we reflected on what we have come to see as a very unexpected blessing. The utmost respect and dignity was offered our family all the way up to the time Tom was prepared and taken out of the building by the funeral home. We were so moved by the whole experience.
We would highly recommend the Medilodge of Leelanau to anyone in a season of life who would require this type of care.
Whether it's lying down in a clean bed at night or getting a hot meal, MediLodge is doing a great job. Everyone here goes above and beyond to make us happy
If you are looking for a place that offers reliability, comfort, security, and wonderful service for you or a loved one, this would be the number 1 choice in the Traverse City area. I received quality care, quality food in a beautiful environment. This place meant all my needs from medical care, to emotional and social in just the short time I was here for rehab. When I am no longer to stay at home, I know where I will spend my day when I need 24 hour assistance.
The opportunity to interact with staff and residents was a great experience. The Activities Department provided an array of activities that really helps the residents get up and going and gets them involved with their environment. This helped me in my rehab process to feel included and feel needed.
The therapy department were my biggest cheerleaders with the upmost professionalism. Watching the different ways that they engaged residents and keep them moving and helping them reach their goals was unbelievable. I was able to accomplish my goals set forth by my therapy team to be able to finally go home.

After a very bad fall at our winter home in Mesa Arizona, and a ten-day hospital stay, I was eager to return to Leelanau country for medical care. We boarded the airplane in Phoenix on May 3rd, at 7:00 am for Michigan with my husband, grandson and oldest daughter. After 20 hours of travel time, we finally reached our destination at 3:00 am on May 4th with a wonderful greeting at the front entrance of MediLodge by familiar happy faces.
My care has been excellent, especially with all the major changes that are proceeding forward. I appreciate the healthcare facility and the employees of which many I know personally and encouraged education along life’s journey. During my 66 years in the nursing profession, working at Leelanau Memorial Hospital and Leelanau Clinic, it has been a great pleasure. My progress is remarkable and made possible at Medilodge by the persistent therapy department and wonderful nursing team. We must have changes in our daily life to see progress and be ready to help one another whenever possible. I look forward to going home and with Thanks to MediLodge of Leelanau for wonderful caring and compassionate employees.
I have never been to a skilled nursing center before and didn’t know they were this nice and well run. I had reservations when I first got here, but upon entering the building I was greeted at the door and the customer services was exceptional all throughout my stay. The food was great (I thought nursing home food would be terrible), the housekeeping department kept up the building so well and my room so clean. I was always offered something to do multiple times a days, and I really enjoyed the music in the dining room while we had lunch. The nursing staff was so prompt and was at my bedside every time I called. I will definitely come back here in the future if I need any therapy or long term care. This place was so well ran and would recommend to anyone.

"After my hospitalization, I thought I would never be able to go back home. After six weeks of rehab, I am back on my feet and ready to go."
The Family of Mary Anderson
We were so fortunate to have Mom at Medilodge of Leelanau and under such great care. Mom loved the staff and environment. She touched so many lives, leaving a lasting memory. She was a ray of sunshine.
I was recommended by my physical therapist in Petoskey to come to MediLodge of Leelanau for my rehab needs after my accident. I am very happy to report complete satisfaction with the whole system from admission to discharge. Nancy, Debra, and Cheryl, my nurses, and all of the CNAs, especially Liz and Barb, provided excellent care and cared about me! Showing that you cared was so important for me and my rehabilitation. I was very impressed with all the activities offered. Lena is very good at her job, and she is everywhere all the time. Also, the whole PT-OT department was excellent too. They all have really helped with my progress.

"If you need help after your hospital surgery, you can make that time productive and positive at Leelanau Health Center in Suttons Bay. They helped me feel better faster by their experience and professionalism for both of my Total Knee Replacements!"
I had hoped to stay at home until the day I died but realized I needed skilled nursing care to help me regain my independence so I could return home safely. I was unsure at first because I always had the impression that people in nursing homes sat with nothing to do and had nothing to stimulate their mind and make there day pleasant. However, I found that I was wrong. Medilodge of Leelanau was more like home; so bright, clean, and many activities going on to please everyone. Families and friends were there to visit people often. The staff was all delightful and helpful. Something about the team showing interest in each person as an individual and treating them with respect, dignity, and providing genuine care as individuals made this stay a pleasant experience. I want to thank all of the staff at Medilodge of Leelanau for helping me to work hard and regain my independence. I am now on my way back home.
