Woodland Hospice Morey Bereavement Center has signed a letter of intent to affiliate with MidMichigan Health. Both organizations are finalizing the details of the agreement and expect the affiliation to be finalized in summer 2015.
“This is great news for the communities we serve,” said Karen Langeland, executive director of Woodland Hospice. “Through our affiliation, our services will be stronger than ever. MidMichigan’s philosophy that health care is local was a key consideration in our decision. We will continue to provide quality hospice care coupled with best practices and a steadfast commitment to patient and family satisfaction.”
As part of the general agreement, MidMichigan will assume the day-to-day operations of Woodland Hospice. MidMichigan will provide the hospice care services for patients, as well as utilize the facility as a cornerstone location in Mt. Pleasant, leasing additional space as a base for its home care office support services. Woodland will continue to own and maintain the Woodland facility.
“This truly is an exciting opportunity for MidMichigan. The reputation of Woodland Hospice in the community is outstanding, which is demonstrated by both community and professional engagement,” said Christine Chesny, president of MidMichigan Home Care. “Not only are there many generous contributors to Woodland Hospice, the organization also enjoys a strong, seasoned volunteer program with more than 90 active volunteers. What’s more, the programming Woodland Hospice offers is robust and together our knowledge base will have a positive affect on all those we serve.” Full press release
