Patient Pride

At McLaren Lapeer Region, it is our mission to provide the best value in health care, but we also pride ourselves on providing the best patient experience. Please take a moment to read a few recent comments from our satisfied patients:


I want to give a BIG thank you to the surgical team and Dr. Walker for taking such great care of my granddaughter this morning. One nurse in particular really went out of her way and carried my granddaughter to surgery because she did not want to ride the gurney. You all are amazing! – Kim, Lapeer (December 2016)


Several months ago, my grandfather was a patient at McLaren Lapeer. From the moment he was brought to the ED until he was discharged home with hospice care, he and my family received outstanding care. We are grateful to all of the providers who gave both my grandfather and my family such peace during that time. Thank you to everyone at McLaren Lapeer for such excellent and compassionate care. – Sara, Lapeer (November 2016)


Anyone in need of a hospital cannot go wrong if they choose McLaren Lapeer Region. I spent three weeks there recently and could not have received more TLC anywhere else. The hospital physician, Dr. Neena Sharma, has a wonderful personality and has learned about all there is to know about her chosen profession. All the nurses and their aides did everything in their power to make me comfortable while I was in the TCU unit. The cleaning ladies always asked permission before starting to clean. They were very pleasant and did a great job. Who could ask for more? The folks in the kitchen bent over backwards to make certain I received what I ordered. My taste buds weren’t working as good as they should, but everything looked good. The girls in PT did what they’re being paid to do. They got the job done and that’s what matters. I owe my recovery to everyone I encountered during my stay at McLaren Lapeer Region. – Dick, Attica (November 2016)


My wife was in there for a surgery and I was blown away at how fast these women worked. The women in the birthing area are the BEST. These woman are there working their butts off and have the greatest attitude. They come into your room and their smiles light up the room. By far the best hospital we have ever been to. – Ken, Almont (November 2016)


My mom has been in the hospital for about 3 weeks. Most of that time in the Transitional Care Unit and she has had the best care. They have all been great with her. Thank you to all the nurses and aides and therapists and everyone else that was involved with the care of mother. – Cheryl, Lapeer (September 2016)


I was in the ER at McLaren Lapeer Region last night. I received excellent care. With that being said, I think back to one year ago when my 79 year old cousin started to experience extreme shortness of breath and chest pain when walking. After we called an ambulance, she was taken to the ER at McLaren Lapeer. Dr. Steinacker, Dr. Ledezma and the ER nurses saved my cousin's life. She was diagnosed promptly, in surgery promptly, and if it weren't for the doctors and nurses at McLaren Lapeer Region, my cousin would not have made it. I have peace of mind knowing McLaren Lapeer is there for us. – Deborah, Imlay City (September 2016)


My daughter was born at McLaren Lapeer Region last year and their birthing center is the best!!! All the nurses were awesome! They took care of me and my daughter! Highly recommend the birthing center!!! – Jerri, Lapeer (July 2016)


My family would like to thank Lapeer County EMS and McLaren Lapeer Region for the wonderful care they recently provided our mother. I hope nobody ever has to go through what we did, but it’s comforting to know we have such fine medical care in our community. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts. – Laurie, Lapeer (May 2016)


This month, I was taken into emergency and later admitted to the 2nd floor. My nurse both nights was Anna and her aide was Danielle – both of them were the nicest and most caring young ladies! Not to mention everyone from housekeeping to nutrition, your hospital as a whole is the most wonderful and caring hospital one could ask for. I would just like to thank everyone who makes this hospital a wonderful place to go for any medical needs. – Gary, Lapeer (April 2016)


I am so very impressed with the coordination of care that occurs at this hospital every day! Dr. Benitez, Dr. Abter, Dr. Jones, and the Pain Clinic anesthesiologists have been managing my mother's care for the last several weeks. Each time we see one of them, they have already spoken with each other, so everyone is always on the same page. My mom had surgery today with Dr. Jones and Dr. Benitez. The surgery was scheduled late yesterday afternoon, yet both surgeons and the OR were able to coordinate a time to get her in less than 24 hours later. That's some awesome teamwork! Thanks to the wonderful staff who helped to make today a success – Dana and Bernie on 1W; Jody in pre-op; John and Denise in the OR; Sherry, Marilyn and Tammy in PACU; and of course, her two phenomenal surgeons! And I would be remiss if I didn't thank Lori, Randy, Mary, and all the Wound Clinic staff, as well as Kim in the Pain Clinic. Thanks to McLaren Lapeer for providing excellent care close to home! – Stephanie, Lapeer (April 2016)


Our 2 year old son had ear tube surgery this morning. All of the staff were very attentive and compassionate with our son. They explained everything very well and answered all of our questions which really put us at ease. We were only at the hospital a grand total of 3 hours. The care was superb! Thank you McLaren Lapeer! – Leah, Lapeer (March 2016)


My 1 year old son had tubes put in his ears this morning and the staff was fantastic! Everyone was so welcoming and attentive to him. Special thanks to pre-op, OR, post-op and especially Dr. Walker for taking such good care of him. I wouldn't take my family anywhere else. – Amber, Otisville (February 2016)


I have to admit the whole entire staff is absolutely wonderful, from RN Victoria, Dr. Hussan, and Betsy the manager, I cannot tell you what great bedside manner they all have, not to mention great care. It's unfortunately rare that everyone you run into at a hospital is so kind and compassionate, but here that was not the case. Everyone there treated the patients with the most respect and empathy. It's great to have a small hometown feel but also a great hospital right here in Lapeer. – Megan, Lapeer (November 2015)
