Sketch: McLaren Bay Region consists of the main hospital and numerous campuses and physician offices located throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region. McLaren Bay Region is the result of merging four hospitals during the 1970s and 1980s, including Mercy Hospital, Samaritan Hospital, General Hospital and Bay Osteopathic. Its main hospital on Columbus Avenue is located on the original site of General Hospital. It is a subsidiary of McLaren Health Care Corporation, a completely integrated health network that includes 11 hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, Michigan's only proton therapy center, an employed primary care physician network, commercial and Medicaid HMOs, home health care and hospice, medical equipment, retail pharmacy services and a fully-owned malpractice insurance company. The McLaren Health Care Corporation recently partnered with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, one of only two National Cancer Institute designated centers in the state, to create the largest cancer research and provider network in Michigan. McLaren Bay Region will play an instrumental role in this new partnership.
