About Michigan Medical Care Facilities
From the Michigan County Medical Care Facilities Council.
There are thirty four (34) Medical Care Facilities (MCF’s) in Michigan that serve citizens in all of Michigan’s 83 counties, regardless of ability to pay for care. Medical Care Facilities are county-owned and serve the indigent on a first-come, first-serve basis as mandated by law and are the safety net for vulnerable citizens who have no means to pay for their nursing home care. Additionally, MCFs provide placement for hard to place, high-needs citizens, who may not qualify for other nursing homes.
- The thirty-four (34) Medical Care Facilities in Michigan have 4,153 beds at the present time. That number changes as new facilities are constructed or new wings or specialized programs are added.
- In MCFs, 79% of residents are on Medicaid, compared with a statewide average of 66% Medicaid eligibility.
- MCFs average 96% occupancy. The average statewide occupancy rate for all nursing homes is 88%.
- The average total number of nursing staff time dedicated to each resident in a Medical Care Facility is 5.4 hours per day, while in other nursing homes residents only receive 4.5 hours of care , resulting in over 20 additional minutes of one-on-one staff attention per-resident, per-day for residents in MCFs. This results in 328 hours more nursing care per year to residents of Medical Care Facilities as opposed to residents in other types of nursing homes. Cumulatively, this totals over 520,000 more hours of care per year for the 4,751 residents in Medical Care Facilities than would be received in other nursing homes with the same population.
- County facilities excel. Seven of our county Medical Care Facilities were recently recognized for outstanding resident and employee satisfaction. They received the Excellence in Action Award.
- This honor recognizes long-term care and senior living organizations that achieve the highest levels of satisfaction excellence as demonstrated by overall resident or employee satisfaction scores that fall within the top 10% of the My Interview Product Database. Additionally, it is typical to have 60% of our facilities or more receiving a 4 or 5-star rating on the official government website Medicare.gov/NursingHomeCompare. A Five-star quality rating is the highest rating you can receive.
- MCFs typically pay a higher wage to their staff and have much better benefits than other nursing homes. MCFs consequently have lower staff turnover than other nursing homes.
