Our History


Marlette Regional Hospital

Marlette Community Hospital, now Marlette Regional Hospital, opened on June 22, 1951, with 22 beds, after a construction that cost $300,000.

Since that humble beginning, MRH has grown and accumulated many “firsts.” The Marlette Amendment to the federal Hill Burton Act permitted federal grant dollars to be awarded to non-county-seat communities for the construction of hospitals. 

This amendment directly facilitated the construction of many more hospitals across the country.

MRH’s long-term care unit was the first hospital-attached long-term care facility in Michigan. 

It is now a 39-bed, skilled nursing facility—the highest level of licensure possible for a nursing home. Our staff continues to earn exceptional recognition from the Michigan Department of Community Health.

However, what’s often lost in a recounting of our history is an appreciation for what happened before the hospital opened. Seven years prior to our opening, a group of civic-minded people believed that Marlette deserved a hospital. After the opening dedication more than 70 years ago, some of these volunteers remained associated with the hospital. Some quietly resumed their private lives. But all of them set an example of the dedication, stewardship, philanthropy, and community service that are still vital and modeled by our community supporters, employees, and medical staff today.
