Honoring Healthcare Heroes
Although this has been an incredibly challenging year in so many ways, there have also been some incredibly inspiring stories that have happened as a result.
Everybody, everywhere, every time
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in our community, and among our team members, it's critical that we take action.
While the Ashes Were Still Hot
Welcoming a new baby can be such a wonderful and joyful time for a family.
Standing Up for Team Member Success
When the Lakeland team hired a young man named Eli last year, they knew he’d be a great addition to the call center.
The Right Thing to Do
There has been a great deal of conversation about our recent show of support for our African American team members and neighbors.
More Than a Care Team
As the COVID-19 pandemic reached the United States, 27-year-old Timothy McGuire was working on launching a business with a professor at his alma mater Andrews University.
Angels of Courage

Collaboration in Action
I get asked most days, “How is integration going?”
Back to the Future
Recently, I celebrated the new year with my father who is now more than 100 years old.
Heartfelt for the Holidays
As the holidays near, this is the time of year we might think a little more about family, about being grateful, and about giving back.

A Year to Remember
October marks one year since our integration with Spectrum Health became official.
When we hear the word “contagious,” it doesn’t usually sound like a good thing, does it?
On the Road
Since our integration with Spectrum Health became official in October of last year, we’ve been excited about teaming up with another system.
Because of our unique role in the community, our hospitals are a hub of activity. Unfortunately, so many people coming in and out of our facilities can also lead to some very serious security risks.

Keep It Flowing
