MidMichigan Medical Center – Gladwin new equipment

Emergency Room nurses gather with Dr. Merk in front of the new ER Trauma Room cabinetry.


MidMichigan Medical Center – Gladwin volunteers have fulfilled several equipment requests this year that enhance patient care and provide warm and comfortable care areas.

The equipment purchased includes upgraded trauma room cabinetry, additional pieces of equipment and therapy toys to support patients who may need physical and occupational therapy, patient chairs for the rehabilitation department, phlebotomy chairs for the laboratory, and new blanket warmers for the Health Park, Urgent Care and physician offices. Contributions totaling $17,556 were given to the MidMichigan Health Foundation to support these needs.

“Our volunteers want to provide the best possible environment for our patients,” said Jo Sommers, volunteer coordinator. “They look to add the special touch to the care that patients receive at our facilities. The items purchased with the help of the volunteers make that care just a little more comfortable. We are so grateful for all the volunteers who continued to work in our gift shop and in our patient care areas during the pandemic. It has been an unprecedented year.”
