McLaren Lapeer Region: Dedicated to providing exceptional care.

Patients and visitors
From admission through post-hospital discharge, we strive to provide continuity of care that ensures the best possible outcome for you, our patient. We admit and treat all persons without regard to race, color, national origin, handicap or age.

We offer access to qualified sign language interpreters and auxiliary aids to sensory-impaired persons at no cost to the patient.

McLaren Lapeer Region is a smoke-free facility. We ask that you use cellular phones in posted areas only. Courtesy phones are located by the information desk and in the ED waiting area.  Pay and credit card phones are located on the ground floor, near the cafeteria, and on the first floor near the Emergency Department, the South Wing, and on the second floor, North Wing.

What to Bring to the Hospital

Limit the number of personal items you bring. Leave all jewelry and valuables at home. Bring your Advance Directive if you have one. You may want to bring a robe, slippers, toiletries, reading material, and your own pillow. Be sure these items are marked as belonging to you. All electrical devices must be checked by Lapeer's Maintenance Department prior to use. Television service is provided free to all patients. Patient rooms have telephones. To place long distance calls, patients must first dial "0" to reach the hospital operator.  Long distance calls may be billed collect, credit card, reverse charges, or by a pre-paid calling card. To dial a patient room outside the hospital, call (810) 667-5727.
