In northern Michigan, distances between people and the services they need sometimes seem overwhelming. For more than a decade, the physicians and hospitals of Munson Healthcare have worked to overcome this obstacle and provide exceptional cardiac care to patients from 24 counties. Together, they have developed a nationally recognized program that links primary care physicians, internal medicine physicians, cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, community hospitals, and the services of Munson Medical Center. Munsonís cardiothroacic surgeons are among the best in the country, specializing in surgery of the chest including the heart, great vessels, and lungs.
The physician and hospital partners of Munson Healthcare have sought excellence and achieved it. Munson Medical Center has one of the few heart programs in the country to repeatedly be named to the 100 Top Hospitals list by Thomson-Reuters.
Munson Medical Center cardiologists see patients in Alpena, Cadillac, Frankfort, Gaylord, Grayling, Kalkaska, Manistee, Prudenville, Sault Ste. Marie, and Traverse City.
In addition, preventive education and care, patient education, and cardiac rehabilitation are offered through physicians and hospitals in many local communities. For more information on cardiac services and procedures offered through Munson Healthcare, click here.
