Your call helps us to provide the best possible care for your loved one and all Manistee County Medical Care residents.

Who is the MCMCF Customer Concern, Corporate Compliance Hot line for?  We encourage any MCF customer that wishes to express any concern to call.

How will my call be answered? The line rings directly to a voicemail box. Messages that are left after business hours or weekends will be retrieved the next business day.

When I have a concern should I call the Hot Line first? For immediate concerns regarding a resident the facility encourages you to speak to a nurse first.

Why should I bother calling? We have the same goal as you do: We want to deliver the best possible care for your loved one. We can only do this when we work together.

Please leave your name and number along with the best time to reach you. This is the best way to address a concern and resolve the issue to your satisfaction.


Manistee County Medical Care Foundation

As all of us have realized, a tougher economy means a tighter budget and county facilities are particularly vulnerable since funding and payment rely almost exclusively on government or other private insurance.  In order to fund items, activities, services, and programs that improve the quality of life for MCMCF residents that cannot be covered in the budget, a charitable foundation has been formed.

Every gift makes it possible for us to continue to deliver services and the foundation is a creative means of meeting new and growing challenges.   This bold step is an example of our innovative and caring spirit    

We are a registered 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization, and all gifts are deductible for income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law. We invite you to join our community of supporters and we thank you for your generosity

Currently the volunteer board members are Larry Bielski, Mary Murton, Ben Kubiak, Tom Stege, Tonja Robles, and Linda Duchon.  For information on the foundation or to contribute, please contact Linda Duchon, Administrator @ 231.723.2543 or send donations to 1505 East Parkdale Avenue, Manistee.


Breathe Free We Are Smoke Free!

Since October 1995 the Manistee County Medical Care Facility has been a smoke free facility.  On January 1, 2009 the facility expanded its tobacco ban to the entire campus.  As of that date, no tobacco use of any kind will be permitted inside or outside of the facility. This initiative also will include the elimination of the designated area outside our facilities where employees and visitors currently use tobacco products.

The Manistee County Medical Care has joined Hospitals and Nursing Homes across the United States in an effort to become tobacco-free. As a health care organization, committed to the health and safety of our residents we have a responsibility to take a leadership role on this major health issue.

We are asking for your support in our tobacco-free initiative. Our decision to go tobacco-free is not an attempt to “force” anyone to quit smoking. Rather, the tobacco-free initiative is a concrete way we can demonstrate our ongoing commitment tohealthy living.

Tobacco along with second hand smoke is one of the leading causes of cancer and is the root cause of many illnesses and lost productivity. Tobacco use in and around nursing homes poses health and safety risks for residents, employees and visitors.  

We appreciate your help and support. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Linda Duchon @ 723.2543.  MI.
