The MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot Emergency Department is located at the north end of the Medical Center. This emergency department was built in 2008 and has Trauma Level III designated. We are affiliated with MidMichigan Health and the University of Michigan. We have a helipad and are able to fly patients to higher levels of care if necessary.

The department staff works collaboratively with nurses, physicians, advanced practice providers, and auxiliary departments to provide high end quality care with excellent patient outcomes. Our team is known for its efficient and compassionate care and works closely with patients and their family members to ensure that we provide holistic care.

The Emergency Department team is supported by multiple departments within the Medical Center and closely works with the critical care unit and behavioral health floors. Our team strives to meet the standards of care which is evident by our quality metrics.

Types of Patient Care

  • Infants to Adults
  • Critically ill or injured patients
  • Trauma patients/Level III designated
  • Respiratory
  • Cardiac
  • Behavioral Health

The Emergency Department is offered many opportunities to excel in the education and skills that are necessary to provide top quality care. These opportunities include emergency medicine education sessions and online classes offered throughout the year. These emergency medicine educational sessions provide theory and tactile opportunities as a way to learn and maintain necessary emergency medicine skills. We are educated on evidenced based medicine so that our team can provide care that is known to be proven.

We also have committees within our department that help extract data for quality metrics. The team is actively involved in the  Unit Practice Council and use this council to roll out new information to the department as well as team building.
