St. Anthony Medical Center (formerly McLaren Central Michigan) is a 118-bed acute care hospital located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. St. Anthony Medical Center is a privately owned, locally-governed community hospital, offering a full range of health and wellness services from the Hospital campus and off-site locations. With its wide array of services and programs, St. Anthony Medical Center is recognized as an accessible and dependable source for quality medical care for the residents of Isabella County and central Michigan.
St. Anthony Medical Center is licensed by the Michigan Department of Public Health and holds high marks of accreditation from the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). St. Anthony Medical Center is also accredited by the American Academy of Blood Banks.
Today, we have approximately 60 Active Medical Staff physicians. St. Anthony Medical Center has over 150 courtesy, consulting, adjunct, and honorary and health professional affiliates. We continue to be one of the largest employers in the region with more than 650 employees, and another 200 volunteers.
Once again, St. Anthony Medical Center was named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals® in 2011 by Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. St. Anthony Medical Center was selected from nearly 3,000 hospitals nationwide as an example for other healthcare organizations to follow. St. Anthony Medical Center received high marks from the Thomson Reuters study in factors such as adherence to clinical standards of care, patient safety, patient satisfaction, operational efficiency and financial stability.
In 2011, St. Anthony Medical Center unveiled a new, ultra-short open bore MRI that produces higher quality images and has an opening nearly 20% larger than closed-bore MRIs. Most procedures are performed feet-first, with the patient's head staying outside the bore. Noise levels - patients' top complaint - are reduced by up to 90%. The new MRI also allows advanced breast imaging and biopsies that lead to more precise diagnoses and timelier, more accurate treatment decisions between doctors and patients.
The 7,000 square foot Heart & Vascular Center, which is located on the first floor of the hospital, celebrated its one-year anniversary on July 1, 2011. It includes a lab that supports low risk cardiac catheterization procedures, as well as a wide range of minimally invasive peripheral vascular procedures. Other areas within the center include physician office space for cardiologists and an endovascular surgeon, along with areas for non-invasive diagnostic services such as stress testing, nuclear medicine and ultrasound procedures.
The Norval K. Morey Cancer Center celebrated its 6 year anniversary in September 2011. The center, now a part of the St. Anthony Cancer Institute, opened in 2005, offering both radiation and chemotherapy treatment.
In 2008, St. Anthony Medical Center and Central Michigan Orthopaedics (Drs. Keating, Lilly and Moutsatson) partnered to offer a new comprehensive joint replacement program. The Central Michigan Joint Replacement Program offers an all-inclusive, planned course of treatment for individuals who undergo a total joint replacement with a strong focus on wellness, not sickness. Educational seminars are held monthly and are available for anyone interested in learning more about a total joint replacement.
In 2008, St. Anthony Medical Center completely renovated the obstetrics unit into a modern day Family Birthing Center. The center now offers the amenities of home with beautifully decorated private rooms as well as state-of-the-art central monitoring of laboring moms. The Family Birthing Center consistently receives high patient satisfaction scores.
In 2007, the Norval K. Morey Cancer Center received two five star awards from the American Cancer Society. The hospital also installed a digital mammography system to provide our patients with the best possible breast imaging and comfort, with lower X-ray dosage.
In 2007, St. Anthony Medical Center joined Partners for Children's Health, an affiliation with Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in an effort to improve the care of children and families throughout the region.
In 2006, St. Anthony Medical Center became a tobacco free campus. Tobacco use is now prohibited anywhere in the buildings or on the grounds owned or leased by St. Anthony Medical Center. The hospital also opened the Central Michigan Health Park. The medical park currently houses four medical office buildings.
Information Known to Kindred Society
St. Anthony Medical Center lies on the east side of Mission Street, an area of Mt. Pleasant widely known to be a no-man's land between the city's Kindred and Lupine territories. How the hospital's owner, Salvatore Giovanni, has existed there for so long is a mystery.
Salvatore Giovanni bought St. Anthony Medical Center from McLaren Health Care in 1996, only a year after his arrival in the city. Under the assumed identity of "Marcello Giovanni", ostensibly Salvatore's nephew, he filled the role of the administrator for many years, acting as the central point of control within the hospital. While he maintained continuity in its operations largely unaltered, he regularly conducted personal business out of his office and took appointments with members of the Kindred community. Recently, he has handed the hospital's administration off to one of his actual nephews, Claudio Giovanni. Salvatore has made it openly known at court that he is willing to sell St. Anthony's blood supplies to those in need for the price of $1000 per three pints of blood (Resources x1/3 Blood Traits) or a Trivial boon for the same quantity. Those wishing to engage this service need only call his private number ahead of their arrival.
Blood isn't the only thing the Giovanni sells under the table from the hospital.
Salvatore is working on some elaborate necromantic ritual in the basement.
The East Side has actually seen a lot of improvement since the Giovanni settled in there... Maybe he actually cares about the community?
