McLaren Bay Medical Foundation

History of McLaren Bay Medical Foundation

McLaren Bay Region and its predecessors have been bringing high-quality medical care to the people of Bay County and the surrounding region since the late 1800s. More than 100 years later, McLaren Bay Region remains mid-Michigan’s leading and most respected health care provider.

McLaren Bay Medical Foundation was organized in 1979 as a 501(c)3 organization for donors to support ongoing health needs for our community. It is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of dedicated volunteers from throughout the community.
