My Go-To Place to Make a Difference

  • I Found My Love for Nursing

    ICU Nurse Nicole Anderson

    "I started working in the ICU two months after graduating from nursing school. I was able to grow as a nurse and person and learn from some very experienced nurses. Three years into my career, I'm now a permanent charge nurse in the ICU. I enhanced my knowledge and skills with many different educational opportunities and recognition like TCAR, FCCS, and I recently achieved my CCRN certification. I was also named Distinguished Nurse of the Year. I found my love for nursing working in the ICU. I feel challenged every day and am able to use my brain each and every shift. I feel that I make a noticeable difference in my patients' lives.”

    -- Nicole Anderson, BSN, RN, CCRN

  • My Coworkers are Like Family

    "This is a photo taken at Debra Wiertella's home. It only shows a small part of the group. Her home is a Christmas Paradise with treasures from all over the world. She shares it every year and hosts a breakfast and has a scavenger hunt for a door prize. Afterwards, we all go holiday shopping downtown Bay City at the Christmas open houses. Nurses who are retired even join. This has become a tradition and shows how our coworkers become family. This one of the reasons I have worked at MidMichigan for almost 25 years. Proud to be a team member."

  • Good Outcomes, Great Experiences

    ICU Nurse Gabe Kaiser

    "In 2005, I returned home and started working in the ICU at Alpena General Hospital. At that time most of the nurses had 20 plus years of experience, and they all welcomed me in and never made me feel out of place. It was like having 20 moms and 6 dads, one of whom was really my mom. I worked the ICU here for 15 years and always enjoyed the teamwork, work ethic and helping hands. Many things have changed over the years but staff helping staff with good patient outcomes and great experiences has not. If you want to use your mind, feel part of a team, have positive patient outcomes then Alpena ICU is the place you should work.”

  • Unit Practice Councils Make a Difference

    Gratiot OB Nurses wearing pink and blue ribbons for pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day

    "October 15th is nationally known as pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. The Gratiot OB Unit Practice Council organized employees to wear pink and blue ribbons during the week of October 15th in recognition of those in our community who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or infant. All departments were able to participate across MidMichigan Medical Center-Gratiot, Mount Pleasant, and the Alma and Mount Pleasant OB/GYN offices. This resulted in many MidMichigan employees and community members expressing their gratitude for remembering these difficult losses."

  • Strong Teamwork and Relationships

    ICU Nurse Renee Lamp

    “I have come to realize that working in the intensive care unit helps to feed my need to function in a controlled and bustling setting. I love the attention to detail that I can provide to my patient care practice. Within the unit strong teamwork and good staff relationships are on full display. With just knowing that there are others available to help navigate the shift with provides a sense of comfort.”
