"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."
I choose Medilodge of Leelanau for my rehab needs because I have heard good things about them and it was recommended to me from a friend. The entire team was excellent, but especially the rehab team. Ramil and Tiffany pushed me to work hard to achieve my goals. They do their job right.
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.
Everyone here at MediLodge of Leelanau was so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! I was very content with my stay here.
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.
Lena is the Life Enrichment Director of MediLodge of Leelanau. I think of her in a t-shirt that says, “not on my watch.” We are in over three months without anyone getting the virus. The outside world is not allowed in. All of the staff, nurses, CNA’s, doctors, housekeepers, and maintenance have come together to make this a safer place. I believe Lena is responsible for all of the compassion, and she cares so deeply for everyone here. She is my hero. The rehab department is wonderful. I am able to navigate much better than a few months ago. Because of their engaging personalities, I look forward to their visits. Thank you, Chad, Amanda, and Brittany.
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.
I had a very good stay at MediLodge of Leelanau. Everyone was so nice and treated me very well. I came here to do some therapy to get better and stronger, and the therapy team did an excellent job helping me achieve my goal so I can go back home. I would definitely recommend this facility to others.

"I would like to thank the staff at Leelanau Health Center for the excellent care given to my mother, Gail Smith, this past summer. She was at Leelanau Health Center from July through September 2007. Mom needed skilled nursing care, which Leelanau Health Center in Suttons Bay, MI was able to supply. What impressed me, was not just the medical care and therapy, which were first rate. The gentle kindness, and willingness to be accommodating to my mother and family members during a very stressful time, was outstanding and appreciated. An example of this was the Social Worker taking a personal interest in making sure Mom was able to listen to the Harry Potter book on tape she was given. The nurses and aides were kind and professional. Mom was unable to move on her own, but the nurses and aides were patient and always willing to take the time to meet mom's needs. Similarly, the therapists were kind and encouraging coaches who refused to take "I can't" for an answer. Overall, it was the little things that made the stay successful for Mom. We are grateful that Mom had the opportunity to be in such a supporting atmosphere while she began her healing process."
My stay at MediLodge of Leelanau was very enjoyable. The staff are absolutely incredible. The therapy team is top notch and the food is very good. I also enjoyed Bengal, the facility cat. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone needing skilled nursing care.
