Michigan Medicine and St. Joe’s: The Right Care, The Right Time, The Right Place
Programs Offered Through the Joint Venture
Michigan Medicine physicians have been working alongside St. Joe physicians and caring for patients in Chelsea for more than four decades. Today, we offer an ever-expanding list of services at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, including cardiology and heart failure, family medicine, ophthalmology, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, urology, gynecology and prenatal care.
Inpatient Rehab Program
St. Joseph Mercy Health System and Michigan Medicine now offer expanded inpatient rehabilitation at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea. This expansion of inpatient rehabilitation services will ensure patients recovering from stroke, brain injury, amputation, major trauma, neurological disorders or other complicated medical conditions with rehabilitation needs, receive the best care in the most appropriate setting.
Chelsea Heart Failure Program
Michigan Medicine has also developed a program to provide heart failure patients with all the resources they need for success and to minimize the chance for readmission. The Chelsea Inpatient Heart Failure Service includes optimization of heart failure medications, an engaging education program, close monitoring following discharge, and support from a team including specialists from pharmacy, social work, and nutrition. Patients admitted to the Inpatient Heart Failure Service will be cared for by Michigan Medicine hospitalists on the Michigan Hospitalists Chelsea (MHC) Service.
