“We have been part of the McLaren Northern Michigan network for over 20 years. With this name change, our patients will only need to remember one name for their health care needs… McLaren,” stated Laura Daniel, MSN, RN, CHPCNA, CEO of McLaren Home Care & Hospice. “We will continue to provide the personalized care that our patients and community expect and deserve.”
