The commitment to quality designated by this award is a key first step to developing systematic, sustainable, person-centered care and services. We congratulate all of our 2010 winners on this prestigious achievement.
Lydia was there for me from the moment I stepped into MediLodge. I also saw her doing things for other patients whenever they needed. Time and time again she was right there for me at the best moments to brighten my day.
Donald Lund, patient
"Personality, care giving, kindness, patience and determination are only a few adjectives that describe most nurses aides and therapists at the Traverse City facility. When I look back to just 3 weeks ago of how my limbs and body were when I entered the doors of Traverse City, I was very weak and hardly able to do anything for myself. But with the support of the rehabilitation program and the supervision of all the staff, I have a much better outlook about myself. I feel ready to care for myself for the most part, therefore going home to continue my rehab program and get stronger as life continues on."
MediLodge of Traverse City:
I wish I could thank every one of you for all that you did for my mother. She always seemed so happy to be there. I love the book, and will treasure it always. Thank you so much for everything.
I have good care here, and like most everyone, I want to give Barb and Kasia a special thanks for making me feel comfortable and used to being here. I want to come back and visit every one of my friends. The food is excellent; also, thanks to the kitchen staff. I will miss you all, but I am looking forward to being back on my own. Keith is helping me; I hope it’s soon.
The Family of Lloyd Stevens
My husband has been at MediLodge of Traverse City for 13 months. His care has been stellar. The care is given with tenderness and love.
The activities are so diverse-field trips to seeing gardens and going on picnics. The Activity Director, Kasia, along with Barb and Georgiana (great supportive staff) have planned and carried on an Art Show (profitable) from art the residents have done. The residents were so proud of their accomplishments. A lot of the family members and guests to the Lodge attended.
The activity staff and transporter have taken residents on Fall color tours, Christmas light tours and also to see the orchards blossom in the Spring. They have brought residents to enjoy live music and a meal at the Senior Center (the Gathering Place) in Honor.
My husband wanted to first stay in bed. Kasia encouraged him to get up and help her. He now has helped put flower decorations (or posies as he calls them) on the dining room tables and picks them up. He takes that very seriously and that he’s needed.
I have been at the Lodge different times during the week. I have yet to see dirty hair or find food on resident clothes. Residents are clean and cared for. CENAs –Martha, Becky, and Tina care so lovingly for the residents that can’t feed themselves. Hugs and forehead kisses are a daily thing. All the staff are wonderful. I see how caring and wonderful they are.
Now, my husband is a very picky eater. He is constantly teasing the cooks, complaining about the food as he’s cleaning up his plate. The staff takes it in stride and hug him anyway. They are real treasures.
Then there is Travis-maintenance man/BBQer and many other things he does. He is so busy but always gets everything done and done well. Travis takes the time with residents that want to help as he’s working in their room. He is ever so kind.
Now, all that being said, I can’t leave the office staff out. Lisa, Amy, and Wanita-they are my go-to folks when I feel like my world is caving in because my husband isn’t here. They understand and listen to me and offer their supportive caring.
Again, let me reiterate this Medilodge of Traverse City is stellar and should be held up as a standard by which all health care facilities should be held! I’m so thankful I found this treasure!
The staff at MediLodge of Traverse City treat me with respect. I love them all! Holly and Beth have especially been great to me. The food here is wonderful too!
I would like to thank all the great staff here at MediLodge. All the fun, joking around, and fun times made things a lot better in a bad situation. I want to thank everyone for letting me hang out at the nurse’s station for company. Thank you to the cooks for good food! A special thanks to certain people who really helped me out: Barb, Resident Advocate, for helping to make sure my clothes got back to me. Also, Dena, nurse, Tina and Briyanne and Bobbie, CNA’s, who, when I felt really depressed would just talk to me and joke with me and really bring me out of it, and cheer me up. Thank you!
I will miss you all.
I just wanted to let you know that I can’t thank you and your staff enough for the care and attention that I received during my stay at Medilodge of Traverse City. My broken hip was unannounced for two months. I finally went to the ER and was told I have a broken hip. It was so unexpected. I was so blessed to know I was coming here. The nurse aides and the therapists were supportive and attentive and always there! Thank you for all you have done! I am now better and walking because of your care.

I would like people to know that I received the BEST CARE I could have ever imagined at MediLodge of Traverse City. The staff was phenomenal in the way they acted and treated me there. They were always there to help and do anything possible to make your life as comfortable as they possibly could. They also need to be commended on their empathy and compassion when it came to be treated there. Yes, I would recommend Traverse City MediLodge to anyone who needs health care.
