Hospital Room Amenities at MyMichigan Medical Center Midland
Following the expansion completion at MyMichigan Medical Center Midland in December 2011, every patient room at the Medical Center is now a private room. The patient tower has 36 patient rooms on each of the third, fourth and fifth floors. Rooms in the rest of the Medical Center are also now private.
The 350-square-foot rooms feature one patient bed, a private bathroom with shower and a flat-screen TV. Near the room’s large window, a comfortable family area has both a recliner and a sofa that converts to a bed. In the compact headwall, medical equipment and computers for documentation, patient verification and medical records are convenient yet unintrusive. A built-in desk has down lighting that won’t disturb a sleeping patient. Internet access, telephone and TV let patients and visitors stay as informed and connected as they desire.
Health insurance covers the cost of the private rooms the same as it did semi-private rooms in the past. Patients are not billed for a private room differential.
