Allegan General Hospital, a 63-bed acute-care hospital located in the county seat, is the region's major health care provider. The organization is a non-profit hospital, which features a service area covering most of Allegan County and the northern section of Van Buren County. It has a loose, partnership agreement with Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo, yet is a freestanding, autonomous hospital, lead by an 11-person volunteer board of directors.
The hospital also partners with local physician practices, to bring high-quality care to the residents of the area. Allegan Medical Clinic, located immediately adjacent to the hospital, is an example of those important relationships. Interaction between the hospital and its physicians is apparent at many levels, including board of directors, medical executive and many other committees.
The Allegan General Hospital team has been the pillar of health care delivery in the region since 1939, and prides itself on delivering friendly, home-town care with the latest in state-of-the-art technologies and services.
The hospital's services include:
- a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week
emergency room service
The hospital and its facilities are in the middle of a major building project, which will augment its physical therapy program, add substantial physician office space, and upgrade the hospital's emergency room and diagnostic imaging facilities. The building project, started in August of 1999 and slated to be completed in the summer of 2001, sparked by the hospital's growing in-patient and out-patient census, will bring added space and services, along with the latest technology, to our area. The hospital continues to provide a full range of quality services during the project's construction schedule.
