Leadership, employees, providers and volunteers of War Memorial Hospital recently gathered to celebrate the completion of its affiliation with MyMichigan Health. The partnership makes the hospital the tenth Medical Center in the MyMichigan Health system. To reflect the hospital joining MyMichigan, War Memorial Hospital has changed its name to MyMichigan Medical Center Sault.

“This is a very exciting time for our organization and our community,” said David Jahn, FACHE, president and CEO, MyMichigan Medical Center Sault. “A lot of work has gone into exploring our options, and ultimately choosing MyMichigan Health as our partner. We thank our board and leadership teams, and all those involved in the tremendous effort that made this affiliation possible.”

MyMichigan Medical Center Sault is a 49-bed hospital with 51 long-term care beds and 20 psych beds. The Medical Center employs more than 900 people and provides diagnostic services, emergency services, urgent care, orthopedics, rehabilitation, obstetrics, family medicine and many specialty services. MyMichigan Medical Center Sault has a long-term care facility attached to the main campus of the hospital and a standalone Behavioral Health Center in nearby Kincheloe, Michigan.

In April 2021, the War Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees gave approval to move into a nonbinding letter of intent with MyMichigan following months of evaluating proposals from various health systems. A letter of intent was signed and an extensive due-diligence process was completed in October.
