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
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.

"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 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.

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.
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.
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 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.
I knew that I couldn’t go home from the hospital after my injury, so I ended up choosing MediLodge of Leelanau. While I hope I never have to be in a nursing home again, if I had to do it all over, I would say MediLodge of Leelanau was the best spot for me. It was quite the experience and everything went great. They were able to get me back on my feet quickly so that I could get back home.
