Welcome to pennock health services

A Letter from our Chief Executive Officer

Sheryl lewis blake, ceo
Providing exceptional quality healthcare that is cost effective is the hallmark of Pennock. Our organization seeks to create value to you, our community and our patients. Our passion at Pennock is to provide you with personalized care that exceeds your expectations. With a medical staff that is Board certified—we are creating medical homes that “care for you like family.”

We are an 49-bed rural community health organization in Hastings, Michigan (pop. 7,000). As the only hospital in the County (pop. 58,000), Pennock offers services that include traditional inpatient and outpatient care; a community of senior retirement housing; and a successful health and wellness center with over 1,200 members. Located near equal distance in a triangle between three metropolitan centers, (Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing) – Pennock has several clinical tertiary affiliations.

Family practice offices and diagnostic centers are scattered in the smaller surrounding communities to bring outreach and care to outlying areas. Major hospital services include general surgery, orthopedics, and obstetrics. As an organization on the Baldrige Journey, Pennock boasts exceptional quality scores and positive financial margins-unusual for a small rural Michigan Hospital.

As a patient of Pennock you can be assured that our Board of Trustees, Medical Staff, and Leadership team remain committed to improving the health of our community by providing the highest quality of care. Advancing local technology with implementation of electronic health records is an example of improvements we are making every day to ensure quality and continuity of care between all of your health care providers. We lead by example with the goal of reshaping your Pennock Health experience into a comprehensive care delivery model of excellence. In the future, we will create healthy generations by building strong families, improving lives, enhancing patient safety and increasing quality. Thank you for visiting Pennock Health Services.
