About Lakeland Health
Lakeland Health is located in southwest Michigan on the shores of Lake Michigan, in Berrien county, and is the primary healthcare system serving patients from the five surrounding counties. Lakeland Health consists of two acute care hospitals, one located in the northern part of Berrien county in St Joseph, and one in southern Berrien county, in Niles. The Family Medicine Residency Practice is located in Niles, just 5 minutes drive from the Niles hospital and 25 minutes from the St Joseph hospital.
Lakeland Health has received multiple awards and national recognition in the areas of cardiovascular intervention, pulmonary medicine, clinical outcomes, and patient safety. These awards testify to the exceptional skills and expertise of our medical staff.
Our physicians are eager to share these skills with residents and students. On-site lectures and educational facilities, including an on-site simulation lab, will combine with connectivity to Michigan State University’s vast medical education resources to create an excellent setting for learning.
Lakeland Health is a base hospital for students from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Central Michigan University College of Medicine.
