GAYLORD — Physical rehabilitation care at Munson Otsego Memorial Hospital in Gaylord and Munson Charlevoix Hospital will now be managed by Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.

“We consider this agreement a partnership, not an outsourcing. Munson Healthcare partners with a variety of organizations who provide expertise in specific areas. We are always looking for ways to bring leading edge or nationally recognized expertise to Northern Michigan to expand access to services, ” said Casey Kandow, system vice president of ancillary services at Traverse City-based Munson Healthcare.

Kandow said the collaboration, announced on July 5, gives patients the convenience of nationally recognized rehabilitative services close to home.

“Greater focus on stroke and brain injury recovery, joint rehab, and cognitive pain therapy are just a few of the enhancements patients have access to thanks to the new partnership,” he added.
