About the Hospital

A 139 licensed-bed hospital located in northeast Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron, Alpena's first community hospital opened in 1915 as the Donald McRae Hospital. It served until 1939, when a petition was passed to build a new public hospital. On April 16, 1940, a new 88-licensed bed hospital opened called Alpena General Hospital. On April 1, 2016, Alpena Regional Medical Center joined MidMichigan Health, making it the fifth Medical Center in the MidMichigan Health system. To reflect the hospital joining MidMichigan, the Medical Center changed its name to MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena. Accredited by The Joint Commission, the Medical Center has approximately 1,000 employees, 200 volunteers and about 100 physicians.
