The Medical Surgical unit is located on the 3rd floor of MidMichigan Medical Center – Clare. Our unit prides itself in providing excellent patient care to not only the patient, but their families and caregivers as well. As with any unit, teamwork is essential in allowing us to provide the continuum of care in many areas. We work closely with respiratory, case management, social work, physical therapy and occupational therapy to meet the many different needs of our patients while they are hospitalized along with continuing the care at home. When walking on to our unit, you will always find staff with smiles on their face, welcoming you to our floor.

Leadership is supportive of professional development and growth, supporting and encouraging educational opportunities through transition to practice, shared governance, and system-wide quality initiatives.
