Philosophy of Care

smiling staff
At McLaren Northern Michigan, we deliver healthcare using the Clinical Practice Model philosophy that supports the creation of a healing environment for both the patient and family. We care about you as an individual and believe your overall health has physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual dimensions. We want to hear about your needs and priorities so that we may partner with you in planning your care not only while you are a patient in the hospital, but also in coordinating your care needs when you are discharged. As partners in your care, our focus is to give you the information and educational opportunities you will need to make the best healthcare choices for you.
