The Michigan Health &
Hospital Association (MHA) advocates for Michigan hospitals
and the patients they serve. This includes all
community hospitals in the state, which are available to
assist each of Michigan’s nearly 10 million residents, 24
hours a day, seven days a week.
Michigan hospitals consist of
various types of healthcare facilities, including public
hospitals - owned by city, county, state or federal
government - and nonpublic hospitals - individually
incorporated or owned and operated by a larger health
system. Within those general categories are several
classifications of facilities.
The state’s critical access
hospitals efficiently serve citizens in rural areas, where
the facility is the only hospital within a certain minimum
number of miles. Michigan’s teaching hospitals are among the
best in the nation, training future physicians and surgeons
while caring for the ill and injured.
Some of the hospitals in the
state are specialized to treat specific conditions or
populations. Rehabilitation hospitals work with handicapped
or disabled patients to help restore or adjust their ability
to perform everyday tasks. Children’s hospitals are
especially suited to treating pediatric patients and
psychiatric facilities are geared toward providing
psychiatric, psychological and social work services.
Veterans Affairs hospitals provide a variety of medical
services for veterans of the U.S. military.
The MHA serves all of these
hospitals, as well as many health-care-related organizations
such as law firms specializing in healthcare and insurance
companies that focus on health or medical liability
coverage. Using their collective voice, the MHA advocates
for its members before the legislature, government agencies,
the media and the public. In addition, the association
provides members with essential information and analysis of
healthcare policy and offers relevant education to keep
hospital administrators and their staffs current on
statewide issues affecting their facilities.
The following is a list of
the general, medical-surgical acute-care inpatient
facilities in Michigan. This list does not include other
types of hospitals, such as those specializing in
psychiatric and rehabilitation services. All hospitals
listed are members of the MHA.
If you have any questions about Michigan hospitals, please contact
