COVID 19 UPDATE: Temporary Staffing Application Now Online
As part of its emergency preparedness plan, MidMichigan Health is currently identifying qualified people who may be willing to work for MidMichigan Health on a temporary basis if staff shortages occur due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
“As this situation continues to rapidly evolve, it is our responsibility to have workforce ready to support the needs of all of our communities,” said Diane Postler-Slattery, Ph.D., FACHE, president and CEO, MidMichigan Health. “We will first use our internal labor pool for staffing needs and will then reach out to external candidates who have expressed interest via this form, if the need arises. We appreciate all those in our community who have already reached out to offer assistance.”
MidMichigan Health is looking for former and current healthcare workers, especially those with up-to-date clinical credentials or licenses.

For the safety of all, MidMichigan Health reminds its communities:
- If you feel sick and have symptoms of a fever of 100.4 or greater, cough or shortness of breath, please call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.
- Please avoid contact with others and do not travel while sick.
- Above all, the best way to prevent the spread of this virus is social distancing and proper hygiene, such as hand washing and not touching our faces. With these two measures we are all significantly less likely to get the illness.
