Thank you for the special care that I received while admitted to your facility. I have been a nurse for many years and was very impressed with the compassion and care provided by all of the staff. Shout out to Rick in PT, you will not be forgotten! Thanks for the workouts!

"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!"
Everyone at MediLodge of Leelanau was kind, professional and treated me with respect. They were very tentative to my call light when I needed help. The therapy team was great and we all joked around a lot, which made it fun.
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.
MediLodge of Leelanau is bright, roomy, and welcoming. MediLodge expects its new residents to feel overwhelmed, and is ready to answer any questions or concerns efficiently. I found a sense of warmth and familiarity for residents deliberately cultivated. An attentive, conscientious staff greets everyone pleasantly, and one's needs are attended as promptly as possible. My medical issues have been addressed promptly, such as sending a small sample of my blood to the lab to make sure its consistency is on target. I have a "fussy" appetite, but I find the meals are attractively presented and flavorful. No one is eager to engage in rehabilitative therapy, but residing at Medilodge of Leelanau makes the experience a home-like pleasure.

"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."

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.
It was a significant operation which included 4 surgeries in a 1 week period which resulted in a below the knee amputation. I was transferred to Medilodge of Leelanau based on local advice. The admission team was very through, educational and sensitive to my mental condition and developing needs. They explained all the amenities of the facility and the activities to expect during my rehabilitation. Staff from each discipline was very through and very interested in my case to better support me and my recovery and adapted to my personal needs on a 24 hour basis. Pain management was optimized daily, and I became pain free and sleeping through the night very quickly. During my occupational and physical therapy I was able to maintain a flexible scheduled so that I could manage personal work related activities. After a 2 week period from admission I will be discharged with confidence and the skill-sets to be self-sufficient and have maximum mobility. I felt totally comfortable with leaving personal possessions in my room based on my relationships I established initially. I would highly recommend Medilodge of Leelanau to anyone needing skilled nursing care.
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.
I have enjoyed my stay at MediLodge of Leelanau. The nurses, CNA's, and management have been very friendly and kind. The staff was always working hard to provide great care. The food was good with many other alternative options available, which made me happy. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking for long-term or short-term care.
