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.
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.
I enjoyed my stay at MediLodge of Leelanau and I made some new friends there. The staff were great and the therapy was very good!

"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."
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.
My stay at MediLodge of Leelanau was very insightful. I was very pleased with all of the staff and how wonderful they all were. The PT and OT staff are outstanding!
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.
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.
Caring. Attentive. Helpful. This describes the staff and care at Medilodge of Leelanau.
My husband was a patient at Medilodge for a month of rehab following a hospital stay. The staff was extremely caring and attentive to all of his needs—both physical and mental. My husband has Parkinson’s Disease and the nurses were very diligent in giving him his medications on time.
A physical therapist worked with him at least once and sometimes twice a day which strengthened his upper body and helped him regain his mobility. He also received quality care from an occupational therapist and speech therapist. Trevor, one the certified nursing assistants, bonded with him and brought joy to what otherwise could be considered difficult or menial tasks.
The facility was very clean and comfortable. His meals were balanced and good. We live an hour from Suttons Bay, and I never once worried if he was getting his meds or having his needs met.
When we checked out, the staff had already scheduled a follow-up doctor’s appointment and set up home therapy through Munson Home Health Care.
Our family is grateful for the care my husband received while at Medilodge of Leelanau.

"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."
