Millage Renewal for Medical Care Facility on Aug. 2, 2022, Ballot

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday, July 19, 2022
On the August 2, 2022 ballot, all County residents will be asked to vote on a millage renewal proposal for the Calhoun County Medical Care Facility (CCMCF), which would renew the .2482-mill levy for the next 10 years. This is not an increase; it’s a renewal of the millage that was first approved over 30 years ago. The CCMCF, which includes the Marian E. Burch Adult Day Care & Rehabilitation Center, is located at 1150 E Michigan Ave., Battle Creek. CCMCF is a 120-bed skilled nursing care facility that provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. Residents are recovering from conditions such as stroke and surgery before they return home, and some are in need of long-term placement for illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease. CCMCF is owned by Calhoun County and is operated under the governance of a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Board. The facility employs more than 150 area residents. It is the highest-rated nursing home in Calhoun County, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Nursing Home Compare and is a 5-star rated home. CCMCF is both Medicare and Medicaid certified, providing quality care for county residents, including those who have the greatest financial need.The Marian E. Burch Adult Day Care & Rehabilitation Center is a department of CCMCF and offers a variety of activities and day care services for medically challenged individuals who are still living in their own homes. The Adult Day Care Center has been temporarily closed since March 2020. Initially closed due to pandemic-related concerns and restrictions, the Center remains closed at this time while the Medical Care Facility works to fully staff all departments within the Facility (which includes the Adult Day Care). CCMFC believes that the Adult Day Care is an important and needed community program, and hopes to re-open the doors in coming months.“CCMCF prides itself in top-notch quality care. Although staffing has proved challenging over the last two years, the Facility is proud to continue to maintain the staffing ratios and standards as we have always held. The staff have given their all during these challenging times,” said Beverly Kelly, the CCMCF Millage Renewal Campaign Chair and Marian E. Burch ADC Advisory Board Chair.The Michigan Primary Election takes place on Tuesday, August 2.
