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 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.
The last 4 months that I have been at MediLodge of Leelanau have been wonderful. The food is 5 star! The therapy team is phenomenal. I would definitely choose this facility again, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. Anyone that comes to MediLodge of Leelanau will be very well taken care of.

"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 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.

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.
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.
I would recommend MediLodge of Leelanau to anyone that needs short term rehab. The facility was very clean and everyone was very friendly and helpful!
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.
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.
