Hillsdale Hospital is an independent, progressive, rural hospital located in South Central Michigan.  The hospital and staff are committed to meeting your professional needs with extensive hands on experience.

Our newly renovated Emergency Department received over 37,000 visits last year.  The operating rooms are spacious, with the most modern equipment.  The joint recovery floor is state-of-the-art, and keeps orthopedic post operative patients mobile with physical therapy and individualized nursing care.  Hillsdale Hospital is a modern facility, which offers the student, intern, and resident the opportunity to further their osteopathic medical training with practical patient care experiences.

We wish to extend to you an invitation to come and see our MRI, 64-slice CT scanner, and all that Hillsdale Hospital has to offer.
