What medical paperwork will I need? How do I transition from the hospital to this center? Find out the answers to these frequently asked questions about our center below.

Should I tour your facility before admitting?

We recommend that you visit the facility prior to admission, to assure both the potential resident and family that Medilodge of Cass City is the place to choose for your healthcare needs, however, it is not required. We would be happy to schedule a visit for you.

Call us at 989.872.2174, we can start the process! You can also ask your discharge planner or case manager at the hospital to contact Medilodge of Cass City and we will make all the arrangements, while keeping you informed. We also have a liaison who can come visit you in the hospital. She will meet with you and your care team to ensure a smooth transition to our center.

The process is not complicated, and our Director of Admissions would be happy to guide you along. We will do everything we can to make it as simple as possible for you. We can even complete most of it prior to you or your loved ones arrival.

The paperwork you will be asked for would be completed by the primary care physician or attending physician in the hospital. We obtain the medical history, current list of medications and medical notes. If the transition will be from the hospital, our team will get all of that from the hospital to ease the transition for you. If the transition is coming from home, we will work with your physician to obtain all of the necessary medical information.
