Sheridan Community Hospital (SCH) is a 22-licensed bed acute care hospital, located in the heart of Montcalm County, on M-66. The hospital employs over 160 workers and professional staff and serves Montcalm and parts of Ionia, Gratiot, Mecosta, and Isabella counties. In 1999, SCH became certified to provide care for patients requiring longer-term stays. We now have ten beds that are certified as "Swing Beds" or transitional care nursing.
SCH has had continued success in broadening its capabilities in the area of emergency services, same day and short stay surgery, patient-centered care, outpatient services, visiting physician specialists and the offering of on-going community education programs.
Each day, more people have the opportunity to receive these services here, in Sheridan, rather than traveling to Lansing, Grand Rapids or other locations. We're here for everyone, even those with a physician who is not on our medical staff. Just imagine the time, money and energy saved for those who might need lab work, diagnostic studies, rehabilitation services, and more, by having it arranged through their doctor's office, to stop by here in place of traveling a greater distance. It just makes good sense.
Services continue to expand and include emergency care and a walk-in clinic (24 hours, 7 days a week), inpatient and outpatient services, medical/surgical care, same day or short stay surgery, pulmonary diagnostics, rehabilitation services, CT scanning, ultrasound, x-ray, mammography, bone density testing, and various other diagnostic testing. Additionally, SCH offers a variety of health and wellness programs like monthly education workshops, health screenings, community health fairs, and blood pressure clinics.
Sheridan Community Hospital's medical staff includes dozens of active, consulting, and courtesy staff physicians, a team of ER physicians, as well as many allied health professionals. A variety of physician specialists see patients weekly in the Physician Specialists' office (located in the hospital's southwest wing) and in the Cardiopulmonary Department. Specialtys include gastroenterology, general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pathology, peripheral vascular, podiatry, radiology, and urology.
We thank you for your continued support to Sheridan Community Hospital. As always, we will continually strive to make improvements so that your healthcare experience is second to none!
