There are no plans to bring emergency care back to Cheboygan. The emergency room, and all of Cheboygan Memorial Hospital, was shut down unexpectedly Tuesday, after a sale to a Flint-based health system fell through.
It was an unexpected twist for a bankrupt hospital that was supposed to be salvaged by a quick sale to McLaren Health Care.
Instead, the tourist town has lost both the only emergency room for miles around, and its largest employer. All 400 Cheboygan Memorial Hospital employees are out of a job.
