I chose MediLodge of Gaylord on the recommendation of my pastor, whose mother had stayed there. All of the staff are amazing. You could tell they care, even the cleaning ladies! They all treated me like family. I would highly recommend MediLodge of Gaylord to others.
My stay was perfect in every sense. Everyone here has been incredible. I came here to get better, and I did. I plan on returning for a visit when I can.
Dear Staff + Friends
Just a brief thank you for all of the love and care I received over the past six weeks here. Tomorrow I go home to Pellston. I will miss everyone.
My favorite pastime was watching the fish and garden! I am planning on getting some fish when I get home as they are easy, fun companions!
Keep up the wonderful work, and I will be back to visit soon.
I chose MediLodge of Gaylord because they offer respiratory services and ventilator care. The therapy team has been great! They are getting me to where I need to be in order to go home. Everyone here is kind and caring. Its been a really good experience!

"I would like to take this opportunity to give a special thank you to the staff of your vent unit. Can I say what a blessing to have such a wonderful staff and medical facility. My sister was a patient there for the past ten years and your staff from day one of my visit to the last, was OUTSTANDING. It's not often that you find the complete staff or organization with such a positive outlook and attitude. I must say that is exactly what I observed during my visits. I know in a lot of ways she became a member of your family there, and I am so glad you were able to share part of your life with her."
Story of Daniel Ford
When Daniel Ford came to MediLodge of Gaylord, He had a capped off trach, and a need of therapies to regain his strength physically and confidence in self cares. Although a self-proclaimed “loner”, Daniel spoke of the bond he shared with staff at MediLodge of Gaylord. With tears in both his, and his daughter’s eyes he stated “everyone here has become like family.” His daughter added “everyone is very accommodating, to him, me and my kids. I’m so glad I could bring them in to see him”
Daniel worked hard to regain his strength and was able to walk out the doors of MediLodge of without his Trach! Daniel is a true testimony of strength, hard work, and drive. We are so grateful that we were able to be a part of his healing process. Best of luck to you, and your family, Daniel.
I chose MediLodge of Gaylord for myself to receive physical therapy and I am happy that I did. I can’t say that there was a specific department or person that stood out amongst the rest because everybody is somebody. Everyone here is very important and wonderful. It doesn’t matter what job they held; Nurse, Kitchen staff, Housekeeping, Office staff or any other job in between. Everybody works hard to do such a great job. I was very well cared for here. Everyone treated me with respect and I would recommend MediLodge of Gaylord to anyone who may need care. I would also like to add that I am very appreciative to every staff member here and they deserve to be given respect, honor and dignity for all of their hard work.

"The commitment to quality designated by this award is a key first step to developing systematic, sustainable, person-centered care and services. We congratulate all of our 2010 winners on this prestigious achievement."
This is a little late, but better late than never.
Several months ago, the Herald Times printed a letter about the dedication of a MediLodge of Gaylord employee. I recently experienced a similar situation.
My husband, Leonard, was at Munson Healthcare Otsego Memorial Hospital for five days before he passed away in December. Prior to his hospital stay, he had been at MediLodge of Gaylord for several years.
Dan Peters, another dedicated MediLodge employee, visited by husband every day at OMH. In addition, he called me every night to make sure that I was alright.
I was very appreciative because I have no family close by and I thank him for being such a caring person and friend.

You gave me a home when I really needed it and the care that I got there [MediLodge of Gaylord] was really great! I made some great friends and met some wonderful people who care about their job and their patients. I would highly recommend MediLodge of Gaylord to anyone! If anything happens to me, I’m coming home, to MediLodge. Love to each and every one of you. I love you and miss you!
