Health Care

Saginaw County is home to five major hospitals. We are a health care hub and popular regional destination.

When it comes to medical facilities and health care, Saginaw county is proud to boast that it provides some of the most advanced medical technologies in the nation. Saginaw is the advanced multi-specialty care provider for nearly a quarter of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. This has given the region a wealth of state-of-the-art health care facilities and some of the Midwest’s most talented providers.

This puts a tremendous amount of health care knowledge and experience in our own back yard, and offers a pool of employees, advisors and medical directors well-versed in nearly every specialty. It also offers the sort of medical research capabilities one would expect to find only in a Top 10 market. Saginaw County is a leader in research in the neurosciences, cardiovascular health, radiation oncology and many other fields.

Saginaw County is home to nearly 600 health care providers that includes regional hospitals – Covenant HealthCare and Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital, along with the Aleda E. Lutz VA Hospital.

Saginaw County also has a residency training organization for physicians called CMU Healthcare, which partners with Central Michigan University. Its residents rotate among CMU Healthcare member hospitals that have a combined bed capacity of nearly 1,000, and feature state-of-the-art facilities.

With its headquarters in Downtown Saginaw, Great Lakes Bay Health Centers provides medical services without regard to race, beliefs or ability to pay. GLBHC serves over 54,000 individuals throughout 16 counties in Michigan.
